He’s got the need, the need for...a date! Top Gun 2 is set to begin production later this summer, and RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal the film’s star, Tom Cruise, is looking for more than just a wingman.
A source told Radar that Cruise, 55, is “totally crushing” on Jane the Virgin actress Gina Rodriguez, 33, and he’s going all out to score her a role in the fighter pilot flick.
“Gina has really captivated Tom with her work, her beauty and her star potential,” said the insider, noting Cruise’s infatuation is reminiscent of when he lobbied to get his now-ex-wife, Nicole Kidman, 50, a role in Days of Thunder.
“Tom will even be working with the same producer, Jerry Bruckheimer,” noted the source.
“It’s a match made in heaven and Tom is ready to go full-bore into making a new Top Gun — and maybe even a new relationship.”
