Biografie von Val Kilmer

Am Beispiel von wird deutlich, dass es mit der großen Karriere auch schnell wieder vorbei sein kann. Die einstige Hollywood-Größe konnte sich lange Zeit seine Filmangebote aussuchen.

Schwieriger Charakter

Doch dann sorgten seine Starallüren dafür, dass viele Regisseure nicht mehr mit ihm zusammenarbeiten wollten. So beschwerte sich Filmemacher John Frankenheimer, mit dem Val Kilmer 1996 den Film "Die Insel des Dr, Moreau" drehte, öffentlich über das rüpelhafte Verhalten des Schauspielers. Bei "Red Planet" soll sich Val Kilmer nach einem Strei mit Co-Star geweigert haben, mit diesem überhaupt irgendeine Szene zu drehen.


Bei solch einem Ruf ist es nicht verwunderlich, dass die Rollenangebote rarer wurden. Gerüchte um Drogen-und Alkoholexzesse taten ihr übriges, um das Bad-Boy-Image zu verfestigen. Mittlerweile ist der einstige Hollywood-Star nur noch in kleineren Produktionen zu sehen, die es häufig nicht einmal ins Kino schaffen.

Grandios vor der Kamera

Schade eigentlich, dass sich Val Kilmer selbst so im Weg steht, denn der Schauspieler hat in zahlreichen Filmen wie "Heat", " Forever" und "Tombstone" bewiesen, dass er in jeder Rolle glänzen kann. Besonders beeindruckend war seine schauspielerische Leistung als "" in der Biografie "The Doors". Die selbstzerstörerische Figur des legendären "The Doors"- Sängers verkörperte der Schauspieler so real, dass ihn die Kritiker mit Lob überhäuften.

Brillant auf der Bühne

Vor seiner Filmkarriere zeigte Val Kilmer lange Zeit auf der Theaterbühne, was in ihm steckt. Nach seinem Broadway-Debüt in "Slab Boys" neben den späteren Hollywood-Stars und , war er Spezialist für Shakespeare-Stücke. Er spielte die Hauptrolle in "Wie es euch gefällt" in Minneapolis und glänzte als "Hamlet" beim "Colorado Shakespeare Festival".

Bei solch einem schauspielerischen Talent ist es umso trauriger, dass Val Kilmers Karriere auf Eis liegt, aber vielleicht überrascht er ja doch noch geläutert im Alter mit einem grandiosen Comeback.

Grace says: At least 3 Val clips in here... mayyyybe a fourth. Can you find them? #ValSpotting



My dear friend Jerimiah got the tickets yesterday. We had a ball right inbetween home plate and first base. What a cliffhanger. Turner is as steady as a damn Shaolin Monk!


That’s what Turner does! He wears stylish iceman tee shirts and he hits clutch home runs in the 9th inning! My crazy friend Rio on the right gave him the tee shirt cause he says he’s an ICEMAN fan. I hope it’s true! I’m sure a fan. Man that swing is tight!




Been looking forward to this....


Grace here with another of our friend Roni-Leigh Hefner's lovely little clips. Are you ready for the SNOWMAN?


Grace here: Folks who were asking for more 12x12 magnetic wooden frames - they are in stock! These fit all 12x12 metal art paintings (Pop Doc, Batman, Morrison, Twain, etc).






New Pop Doc paintings on the site...


Grace here: NEW Pop Docs up on the website. Also some brand new tee and tank options for the daisies and lizard kings amongst you.


I'm so sorry I have to cancel my Twain shows in Virginia this weekend. I've got family obligations that have come up suddenly that I must attend to. Thank you all all for you understanding. And I'll make it up to you as soon as I can.


Tommy Petty knew how to rock and roll us all night long. Classic Songs yet so original. He took his heroes and pulled every ounce of inspiration they had for him, and then he translated that power into his own personal hit parade. He always found a way. RIP IT Tom. I'm so glad my kids got to know you a bit.

Some boys from Tombstone. Rooker has the energy of 10 men- he made everyone feel so energized. He's a powerhouse and perfect for the GALAXY series!


Spokane at last! I haven't done a live show in forever it feels like. Can't wait for 7:30 and even though it's sold out there's always naughty no shows so take a chance and come on down! We'll find u a seat!


So much fun at comic con in Salt Lake today! Such kindness from the people. The the people running it- bravo! The biggest I've ever attended and yet the smoothest and most fun to be at. They even had a pen full of puppies for toddlers to play with! That's thinking ahead! I got to meet Dick Van Dyke who I've been a fan of since I first saw tv. Our whole family just loved him and I got to tell him so. What a humble guy and so much energy! And he looks EXACTLY the same! A big surprise was Gov. Gary Herbert and his lovely wife Jeanette came by to take a picture. And I got to hang out and take pics with 2 Tombstone alumni- Michael Rooker, and Michael Bean. So talented. If you don't have plans for tomorrow, I promise you you'll have some laughs- people love to dress up here as well. So many fun costumes. Wild. I should've taken some snaps myself but I was working hard! Thanks Utah!


Is your coffee hot enough?…



SAINT fan art. Some really talented people out on the web.


Richard Ziman review of Cinema Twain "Citizen Twain is nothing less than an essential and irreplaceable addition to Samuel Clemens' Opus. Val Kilmer dons the mask of Mark Twain and not only delivers an immediate, fresh, and unique iteration of the master's character, but in addition, reveals the actor as well; a twofold bounty. An extraordinary combination of Twain's wit and wisdom filtered through the sublime humor and heart of Val Kilmer. Beginning where predecessor and mentor Hal Holbrook leaves Twain, Kilmer bring us a Clemens unstuck in time- visiting us and world culture from his final resting place out in the cosmos. Surprising, irreverent, humble, irascible, playful, blitzed and stone cold sober, This is a Twain who only exists within the subtext of his greatest works, brought to life with meticulous detail by Kilmer's astute character work. He and Twain have never been better served. Kilmer also has directed this film version of the stage work with great care and understanding, placing the author in a cosmic environment augmented by witty and beautiful projected images. A treat for fans of great literature, great acting, and indeed for fans of the singularly gifted Val Kilmer. Do not miss this film."
