Val Kilmer will be appearing at Awesome Con on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Val Kilmer should need no introduction as he stared in the cult classic Real Genius, blockbuster Top Gun, beloved film Willow, the critically acclaimed Tombstone, The Doors, True Romance, and Heat, plus Batman Forever, The Saint, Red Planet, Déjà Vu, MacGruber, and many more. What you might not know is that while at Juilliard, Kilmer co-authored and starred in the play How It All Began. In 1983, Kilmer self-published a collection of his own poetry entitled My Edens After Burns. For The Doors, original recordings of the band are combined with vocal performances by Kilmer himself. And in 2012, Kilmer received a Grammy nomination for Best Spoken Word for his three-hour-long narration of The Mark of Zorro.
