[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Val_Kilmer_9570.jpg]] Born December 31, 1959, Val Edward Kilmer is an award winning actor known for playing [[Film/TopGun Iceman]] ([[NamesTheSame no]], not ''[[Franchise/{{X-Men}} that]]'' Iceman), [[TheDoors Jim Morrison]], [[Film/{{Tombstone}} Doc Holliday]], and [[Film/BatmanForever Batman]]. He ''really'' likes to prepare himself for his roles, as some of his fellow actors have noted. Fittingly, like the real Jim Morrison, Kilmer is a musician as well, having released a CD in 2007. As per usual, ThatOtherWiki has quite an extensive article on him. ---- !! Notable Roles: * Nick Rivers in ''Film/TopSecret'' (1984) * Chris Night in ''Film/RealGenius'' (1985) * Lt. Tom "Iceman" Kazanski in ''Film/TopGun'' (1986) * Madmartigan in ''Film/{{Willow}}'' (1988) * Jim Morrison in ''TheDoors'' (1991) * Doc Holliday in ''Film/{{Tombstone}}'' (1993) * Bruce Wayne[=/=]{{Batman}} in ''Film/BatmanForever'' (1995) * Chris Shiherlis in ''Film/{{Heat}}'' (1995) * Simon Templar in ''Film/TheSaint'' (1997) * Moses/God in ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'' (1998) [[hottip: *:(animated)]] * Danny Parker in ''TheSaltonSea'' (2002) * John Holmes in ''{{Film/Wonderland}}'' (2003) * Bobby Scott in ''{{Film/Spartan}}'' (2004) * Jake Harris in ''Film/{{Mindhunters}}'' (2004) * Perry Van Shrike/"Gay Perry" in ''KissKissBangBang'' (2005) * Dieter von Cunth in ''MacGruber'' (2010) * Himself, in the viral Internet video that announced the production of a new ''Music/TenaciousD'' album (2012) !! Tropes: * IWasQuiteALooker: See Mr Fanservice. * MrFanservice: Back in his heyday. He was nominated for the MTV Movie Award for Most Desirable Male for ''Tombstone'', and won it for ''Batman Forever''. ** HollywoodPudgy: Nowadays, however, the poor guy has essentially become "fat joke bait." * NonSingingVoice: Although he released his own CD in 2007, his singing voice in The Prince Of Egypt was dubbed. * TheOtherDarrin: He became Batman after MichaelKeaton left. While not as highly regarded, Kilmer still put on a good performance and his physique drew comparisons to comic artist Neal Adams's depiction of Batman. He himself would get the Other Darrin treatment when GeorgeClooney replaced him for ''Film/BatmanAndRobin''. * ThePrimaDonna: In the mid '90s, he had such a reputation as a massive diva that Hollywood producers were entertaining themselves by sending around a mock Unabomber sketch altered to have Kilmer's face. Thankfully, [[ItGotBetter he got better.]] * TalkingToHimself: In ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt''. * TheCastShowOff: Often plays singers and musicians. ----
