Miles Teller is a muscular hunk as he’s gotten into shape to star with Tom Cruise in Top Gun 2

Top Gun made a global heartthrob out of Tom Cruise.

And Miles Teller, who is currently filming the sequel, gave Tom a run for his money when he was spotted out in Los Angeles this Friday.

The 31-year-old Whiplash star showed off his muscular arms and bulging pecs in a loose-fitted tank top advertising Rise Nation fitness centers.

Heartthrob: Miles Teller, who is currently filming the sequel to Top Gun, gave Tom a run for his money as a Hollywood hunk when he was spotted out in Los Angeles this Friday

His hair was puffed out into a dashing coiff, and he sported a handlebar mustache, heading toward an electric blue vintage Ford Bronco pickup truck.

The movie star suffered a frightening accident in this very pickup truck in December 2016, but has had the vehicle restored to its former glory.

Miles showed off his toned legs in a charcoal pair of shorts that were hemmed above the knee, and he carried a paper shopping bag.

The original 1986 film Top Gun was directed by the late Tony Scott, and starred Tom as a military pilot with the nickname Maverick.

Anthony Edwards starred as his fellow pilot Nick ‘Goose’ Bradshaw, whose death during a training exercise leaves Maverick with intense survivor’s guilt.

The upcoming sequel to Top Gun, helmed by Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski, is subtitled Maverick and will see Tom reprise his old role.

Miles will be starring as Goose’s son Bradley, who has followed in his father’s footsteps and is now training to become a pilot himself.

In fact, the new mustache Miles is modeling these days bears a striking resemblance to the one Anthony had in the 1986 original. 

Though Top Gun: Maverick was previously intended to come out next year, Entertainment Tonight reported in August that its bow has been bumped to 2020. 

The sequel will feature some new faces to the franchise including Jennifer Connelly and Jon Hamm, as well as another holdover from the original, Val Kilmer.
