Here's the Scoop...

Val Kilmer is stepping up his campaign to join Tom Cruise in the upcoming Top Gun sequel.

"Still got it... just sayin..." Kilmer tweeted Tuesday.

The message accompanied a bathroom-mirror selfie of Kilmer with blonde, slicked back hair, as well as a T-shirt baring the likeness of his Top Gun character Iceman and the slogan, "Cool as Ice."

Cruise has been talking about Top Gun: Maverick during recent interviews for this weekend's release The Mummy.

Cruise said the Top Gun follow-up will have a similar tone and score as the original 1986 movie about U.S. Navy pilots. He has not revealed who may appear alongside him in the film.

About two weeks ago, Kilmer tweeted at Cruise, saying he is eager and available to reprise his role.

Come on! Iceman said that he'd be Maverick's wingman "any time." That's right! And that time is now! Get Kilmer in this movie! I'm starting a petition! This picture doesn't get made without that Kilmer kid!

Be Well,
Steve

Jaime Pressly is going to be a mom to twins.

The 39-year-old actress confirmed in an interview with People that she's expecting twin boys with boyfriend Hamzi Hijazi in the fall.

"Twins don't run on either side of our families so we were completely shocked," she confessed. "This wasn't IVF or anything like that. It was just a shock, and I'm like, 'Doctor, that's impossible!'"

Pressly is already mom to 10-year-old son Dezi James with ex-partner Eric Cubiche. She told the magazine she and Hijazi have been trying to have children for "quite a while."

"I've always wanted three kids and the older I'm getting, I'm like, 'Okay, maybe just one more would be nice.' I was getting a little sad, but it was like, 'We'll give you two in one,'" the star said of having twins.

"[Dezi is] beside himself," she added. "He's been begging Hamzi and I to give him a sibling since he was in kindergarten. He's very patient and sweet and gentle and is going to be the best little babysitter ever."

Pressly also shared her baby news with her Instagram followers.

"Big news for our family! Dezi's going to be a big brother, times 2!" she captioned a photo of herself holding up her positive pregnancy test.

Pressly is known for playing Joy Turner on My Name is Earl, and has since appeared on Raising Hope and Two and a Half Men. She presently portrays Jill Kendall on Mom, which will return for a fifth season Nov. 2 on CBS.
