0820_tom_cruise_tmz_article_1Tom Cruise is beside himself after the death of "Top Gun" director Tony Scott -- claiming, Scott "was a creative visionary whose mark on film is immeasurable."

Tom -- who starred in "Top Gun" back in 1986 -- added, "Tony was my dear friend and I will really miss him ... My deepest sorrow and thoughts are with his family at this time."

As we reported, Scott -- who directed countless major Hollywood films -- jumped to his death yesterday from an L.A. bridge, leaving behind several suicide notes for friends and family.

Scott reportedly suffered from inoperable brain cancer before his death.

Tom where were you? You had said yourself on video that you and other members of Scientology were the only people capable of really taking charge and doing something to prevent this. Maybe your all in Oklahoma fixing all of the deaths at NACANON?

Throwback kid    

Were the characters Ice Man and Slider supposed to be gay in Top Gun? They seemed to have a very special relationship and no interest at all in woman

I think I have the script for Top Gun 2, Ice Man and Slider have come out of the closet and are still Top Gun Pilots. Tom Cruise is now the commander taking the place of the bald guy who was in Back To The Future. They get a new ****y pilot C Thomas Howell, yes Pony Boy! This will be his comeback movie. His call sign will be Horse Man, kind of a tribute to 1982's the Outsiders. Ice Man , Slider and Maverick will have to do everything they can to reel in this wild but brilliant new pilot. I see this role as not only a comeback for C Thomas Howell but it may also win him an Oscar
