More casting news for Top Gun: Maverick has touched down, and the roster is becoming quite an impressive mix of older faces and younger ones.

Joining the likes of returning gunners Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer are Jennifer Connelly, Miles Teller, Glen Powell and Lewis Pullman (son of Bill).

Now both Ed Harris and Jon Hamm have been added to the mix, according to THR.

Top Gun: Maverick is currently pencilled in for a July 2019 release.
