Everyone's Freaking Out Over Pilot Who Looks Like Maverick In 'Top Gun' (Photos)

Everyone remembers Tom Cruise's character from "Top Gun," Lt. Pete "Maverick" Mitchell.

Now, it seems Maverick's doppelgänger has popped up in Paris.

The Cruise double is named Yasir Mudasser, and he is a Pakistani pilot who was photographed at an air show while talking to the Pakistani ambassador to Italy.

Mudasser looks just like Cruise in the film, right down to his haircut and sunglasses.

Check out the photos to see what I mean.

The resemblance is uncanny.


The Twittersphere believes this guy is the second coming of Maverick.
