Barry Tubb, known for his role as Leonard “Wolfman” Wolfe in the original “Top Gun” (1986) is suing Paramount Pictures over unauthorized use of his image in “Top Gun: Maverick” (2022).

Actor Barry Tubb has initiated legal action against Paramount Pictures, alleging the studio used his image in “Top Gun: Maverick” (directed by Joseph Kosinski) without his authorization. The crux of Tubb’s lawsuit centers around a specific scene in the sequel, where characters stumble upon an old photograph that includes Tubb’s character from the 1986 classic.

This photograph, purportedly an altered behind-the-scenes shot from the original film, has become a pivotal piece of evidence in the case. Tubb contends that these alterations not only utilized his likeness without consent but also compromised the integrity of the original image’s copyright.
