Val Kilmer

Val Kilmer first made himself known as the chief rival of Tom Cruise in the blockbuster "Top Gun" (1986) before delivering an uncanny performance of poet-singer Jim Morrison in Oliver Stone's "The Doors" (1991) and a mesmerizing turn as Doc Holliday in "Tombstone" (1993). Following a strong supporting turn in Michael Mann's epic crime drama, "Heat" (1995), he starred in "The Island of Dr. Moreau" (1996). Kilmer also starred in such movies as "The Ghost and the Darkness" (1996), "The Saint" (1997) and "At First Sight" (1999) before taking on the crime thriller "The Salton Sea" (2002). Kilmer had his strongest performance in years as a gay private detective opposite Robert Downey, Jr.'s dimwitted thief in the hilarious "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang" (2005), which led to a revitalization of his image as one of the most in-demand actors for both major Hollywood movies and independent films.
