Syracuse, New York, U.S.

Super Mega Movie Star, Handsome Gentleman, Couch Jumper, Scientologist 

Starred in "Top Gun," which inspired a generation of Air Force pilots and homoerotic beach volleyball players.

Got an Academy Award nomination for "Born on the 4th of July," in which he played Tom Cruise in a wheelchair.

Made a bunch of hit movies in the '90s and '00s, married Nicole Kidman, made that movie where they both have terrible Irish accents.
