A new trailer for Top Gun: Maverick showcases more footage of Insecure star Jay Ellis in the long-awaited sequel to the 1986 film starring Tom Cruise.

Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller), call sign: “Rooster,” the son of Maverick’s late friend and Radar Intercept Officer Lt. Nick Bradshaw, aka “Goose.”
