MiGFlug Casts the Italian Voice Double of Tom Cruise to Fly a Fighter Jet Prior to Recording Top Gun: Maverick

·2 min read

Youtube video takes viewers on the ride

ZURICH, June 17, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- For the occasion of Top Gun's long awaited sequel Maverick, MiGFlug, an aviation and space adventure company, casted a very special actor, Roberto Chevalier for a flight of a lifetime. Roberto is best known for providing the Italian voice of Tom Cruise in most of his movies; and didn't only lend his voice to Maverick 30 years ago, his voice covers his comeback to the screens in Italy as well.

Unlike the actor, a voice double usually doesn't take part in the action on a set… and in Roberto's case — on a jet. But how can his voice take the role of a fighter pilot without ever having experienced the real thing? That was solved with a flight orchestrated by MiGFlug and available on YouTube for viewing.

Because MiGFlug's raison d'être is to realize people's dream to fly a jet, Roberto Chevalier got offered a front row seat on one of its jets. Look at it as method acting, where an actor inhabits the role of his character to encourage sincere performances...

Boarding an L-39 Albatros Jet, Roberto took off for a dazzling 45-minute flight in the sensational scenery of the Swiss Alps. Together with his pilot, he was in for loops, rolls, spins, and a flyby above and around the Matterhorn.

Roberto's maiden flight was documented and resulted in a short-film-documentary. The film is carried by his voice, and it talks of a dream to finally catch up with the skies. Ironically, this time it was his voice that stayed grounded as the whole experience made the actor speechless while he was at it.
