What are the top movie roles all time for the 58 year old thespian? We scanned his credited roles going back to 1984 to come up with the indisputable Top 5 List of Val Kilmer’s best roles.
Honorable mentions that didn’t make the list include: Mad Martigan in Willow, and Gay Perry in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
#5 HEAT –Chris Shiherlis
In a star studded cast, Kilmer’s star shone as bright as anyones
#4 THE SAINT – Simon Templar
An underappreciated classic, Kilmer plays a single character, who plays a multitude of others
#3 THE DOORS – Jim Morrison
Always difficult to play an iconic personality in a biopic, Kilmer truly became Jim Morrison
#2 TOP GUN – Iceman
The ice cold hearted rival of Maverick, in the end we all decided he could be our wingman anytime.
#1 TOMBSTONE – DOC HOLIDAY
With all due respect to the other fine actors and performances that have been put on film the last 100 years or so, in our estimation, Val Kilmer as Doc Holiday is the finest piece of acting to have ever been shown on the big screen. A truly classic work of art.
