Jon Hamm: Top Gun: Maverick was a dream come true | Entertainment

Jon Hamm says filming Top Gun: Maverick with Tom Cruise was “a pinch of the moment.”

The 51-year-old actor plays the role of Cyclone in the highly anticipated sequel to the action movie and says it was a dream come true to be part of a movie with such a “deep story”.

Speaking about “Smallzy’s Surgery”, he said, “To be able to work on a film like this, with such a deep story, and be able to work on it and work with Tom and [producer] Jerry Bruckheimer and everyone else involved in the making of this movie was a wishlist dream come true, a moment that will definitely pinch me.”

Unlike his co-stars, John was glad he didn’t have to do any flying stunts.

Glen Powell recently revealed that he “vomited a lot” while filming the movie.

The 33-year-old actor, who played pilot Jake “The Hangman” Serezin in the film, and his co-stars went through three months of pre-production training to get used to the overload, but only Tom Cruise, who plays the lead, managed to stay unaffected while in the sky.

He said, “There was a lot of vomiting during filming.

“Before filming, Tom sent us to a three-month training session to get used to the overload.

“(But) even with training, nothing prepares you for intense F-18 flight.

“We all flew once a day and Tom was there three times a day.

“But it didn’t bother him at all.

“Here we are all throwing up in bags, and he takes everything calmly.

“The guy is a machine.”

Tom, who reprized his role as Captain Pete “Maverick” Mitchell in the film, confirmed that he developed a training scheme for his colleagues to help them learn how to fly Boeing F/A-18 Superhornet aircraft.

The ‘Mission: Impossible’ actor said, “I developed a program for actors and told them how we can put them on (F/A-18).

“It was every step along the way. I had to teach them to fly. I had to teach them how to deal with overload. I had to make them feel confident on the plane.”
