Glen Powell Joins 'Top Gun' Sequel After Originally Losing Role to Miles Teller

Glen Powell has joined the cast of the Top Gun sequel after all!

Several weeks back, news broke that Glen lost the part of Goose’s son to Miles Teller. But now, producers have offered him a different role after being very impressed by him, THR reports.

The site reports that “[Tom Cruise], producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Paramount and Skydance” loved Glen so much that they beefed up a role for him.

Glen will join Tom and Miles in the movie, which will hit theaters on July 12, 2019.

    cant believe they even chose miles over glenn, have people not seen him in hidden figures and set it up??? curious to see how miles is gonna douche up this role…..

    I wanted Glenn over Miles too. But then I was thinking, maybe Miles’s character is really obnoxious and arrogant. Then I could see why he got it over Glenn. :P hehe Jk. But not really.

    PR wise, I don’t get choosing Miles over Glen because Miles being attached to this gives those that are already cynical about this sequel, more ammo to go after it.

    Miles looks more like someone who would be Anthony Edwards’s son. Glen is beefier and better looking than someone who would be Anthony Edwards’s son.

    I’m guessing Miles wasn’t gay enough for this film so Tommyboy had his booted.

    i also have this gut feeling that with Miles attached to it, he’s for SURE gonna start some shit (controversy) which is gonna get everyone talking about the movie…which is a win win for everyone.
