Top Gun's Glen Powell Mourns Childhood Friend Killed In Shooting

Glen Powell is honoring his childhood friend, police officer Justin Putman, who was tragically killed in the line of duty on April 18th, 2020 in San Marcos, Texas.

Justin and two other officers were gunned down when reporting to a house after receiving a 911 call. The gunman then turned the gun on himself. The other two officers remain in critical condition.

“He’d been one of my closest friends since I was eleven years old,” reminisced Glen, who next stars in the Top Gun reboot. “This past week I’ve been reflecting on our friendship, living in memories, watching old videos, and trying to sum up someone who marched alongside me in so many different chapters of my life and whose approach to life really helped define my own.”

“Justin was a spark of joy. He was goofy, enthusiastic, fearless, and loyal. Justin loved everyone and everyone loved him; he had an ability to make everyone feel like his best friend. It’s what made him a great officer. He was the type of guy you wanted to carry that badge.”

“But I can’t think of Justin without thinking of the twinkle of mischief in his eyes. He would do just about anything for a good story or to make people laugh. I always found it truly hilarious that the guy who convinced me to break more laws as a teenager became a police officer. But it made sense because he was always a protector, of his family, his friends, and to anyone who needed help. He always said that being an officer gave him such happiness because everyday he could come to the rescue of someone in need.”

“These are uncertain times that highlight the things we can take for granted. But more importantly the people we can take for granted. Tomorrow isn’t promised, but today please thank the men and women putting themselves in harm’s way to ensure our safety.”

“I’ll miss you, JPut. See you on the other side.

'Top Gun' Star Glen Powell Looks Handsome in Bloomingdale's Menswear Campaign

Glen Powell is looking good.

The Top Gun: Maverick star appears in Bloomingdale‘s Spring 2020 Mix Masters Menswear campaign, which was released on Thursday (March 12).

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Glen Powell

As part of the campaign, he also participated in a Q&A about his role in Top Gun, as well as his sense of style.

“My dad introduced me to it when I was 10. I think for fathers and sons the movie is sort of like teaching your kid baseball. Every dad wants to pass it along. Right after watching it, I signed up for acting classes. There’s probably three movies that are responsible for me being an actor and Top Gun is at the top,” he said of the film franchise.

He also said the best part of the experience was “getting to work with Tom Cruise. I basically got Tom Cruise film school every day on set. He’d tell me to watch a movie, I’d watch it that night and then we’d talk about it the next day. For an entire year I got to learn how he makes movies.”

Tom Cruise Paid For Glen Powell's Flight School & He's Now A Licensed Pilot!

Glen Powell is officially a licensed pilot!

The Top Gun: Maverick star revealed the big news on his Instagram today, and credited co-star Tom Cruise for helping him achieve one of his dreams.

“Try not falling in love with aviation after living out every pilot’s dream while shooting @topgunmovie,” Glen captioned with a video on his feed. “Especially when you see the way @tomcruise flexes it. After wrapping a shooting day, Tom would rocket off into the sunset in his P-51 while I would limply shuffle into the cast van.”

Glen revealed that Tom was a major factor in obtaining his license too: “…For Christmas, Tom bought me an iPad with my flight school downloaded and prepaid. And yesterday, after months of flying, studying, and testing…I’m the real deal.”

Top Gun: Maverick is set to open this summer. Check out the first TV spot now!

The new images feature Miles Teller as Lt. Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw, Glen Powell as Hangman, Monica Barbaro as Phoenix, Lewis Pullman as Bob, Jay Ellis as Payback, and Danny Ramirez as Fanboy.

Here’s a synopsis of the movie: After more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him. When he finds himself training a detachment of Top Gun graduates for a specialized mission the likes of which no living pilot has ever seen, Maverick encounters Lt. Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller), call sign: “Rooster,” the son of Maverick’s late friend and Radar Intercept Officer Lt. Nick Bradshaw, aka “Goose”. Facing an uncertain future and confronting the ghosts of his past, Maverick is drawn into a confrontation with his own deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who will be chosen to fly it.

The film hits theaters on Jun 26, 2020.
