Val Kilmer is desperate to be involved in a Top Gun sequel!

The 57-year-old actor took to Twitter on Tuesday to share that he's still ready to play the infamous role of Tom "Iceman" Kazanski.

"Still got it… just sayin…" he wrote alongside a photo of himself wearing a white Iceman T-shirt.

Of course, this isn't the first time Kilmer has made a desperate plea to be involved in the sequel this year — or even this spring !

On May 24, upon hearing that a sequel was in the works, the star paid tribute to the movie on Instagram with a similar caption and shout out to costar Tom Cruise: "I'm ready Tom — still got my top gun plaque! Still got the moves! Still got it!"

Meanwhile, ailing Kilmer may find comfort in his faith, but his belief that prayers have "cured" his cancer may put him in an early grave, according to a specialist.

"If Val is … relying solely on faith healing, he would be denying himself lifesaving treatment!" says renowned oncologist Dr. Jerome Spunberg.

After two years of baffling denials, the tragic actor, 57, admitted in May he has been fighting the disease, but the skeletal star insisted his struggle is behind him as prayer has led to a "healing of cancer!"

But Dr. Spunberg, who hasn't treated the star, recently cautioned delays in getting medical care could have fatal consequences.

"If the cancer has spread … it's rarely, if ever, curable," said Spunberg. "He may have reached the point of no return."
