Why are some actors not back?

This is the question some 1980s fans are asking. Some are even easy to answer and others were made by themselves as in the case of Kelly McGillis, who said the following in an interview with Entertainment Tonight:

"I'm old and fat, and I look age-appropriate, and that's not what this whole scene is about," McGillis said. She added that while she doesn't know Connelly, she is "so glad I had this opportunity."

The actress is currently 64 years old, while Tom Cruise is 59 years old and the Oscar winner Jennifer Connelly (Labyrinth, Spider-Man, Tomorrow Express), per A brilliant mind is 51.

Other actors such as Michael Ironside and James Tolkan gave way to Jon Hamm and Ed Harris. In any case, whatever the reason, hardly any films bring back a good part of their cast. Most of the time, when it's not about trilogies or fast-paced sequels like Back to the future or Matrix that were shot sequentially, actors do not return for various reasons.


It's impossible to talk about Top Gun and not remember its entire soundtrack, especially Danger Zone, in Kenny Loggins. It is unknown if the songs will be back, but according to Tom Cruise, Danger Zone will be. For those who don't know, Loggins is also the name behind another movie hit: Footloose.

Anyway, one of the theme songs has already been released, which is Hold My Hand, by Lady Gaga. According to her, “when I wrote this song for Top Gun: Maverick, I didn't even realize the multiple layers she covered the heart of the film, my own psyche and the nature of the world we live in. I've been working on it for years, perfecting it, trying to make it ours.”
