    ‘An Officer and a Gentleman’ Is Getting a Remake. Here Are 5 Actors Who Could Play Sgt. Emil Foley

    Miles Teller is reportedly returning to the big screen as a U.S. Navy officer.

    On June 14, 2024, Deadline announced that Teller, who appeared as Rooster in the 2022 mega-hit “Top Gun: Maverick,” will now star in an upcoming remake of the beloved 1982 romantic drama “An Officer and a Gentleman.”

    The original film depicted Richard Gere (“Pretty Woman”) as Zack Mayo, a troubled and rebellious loner who wants to finish Navy Aviation Officer Candidate School training while finding love with a local woman, Paula, played by Debra Winger (“Terms of Endearment”). To get through the training, Mayo must earn the respect of his imposing Marine Corps drill instructor, Sgt. Emil Foley, played by Louis Gossett Jr. (“Roots”). Gossett would win an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance, the first Black man ever to win the category.

But since you can't make “An Officer and a Gentleman” without Sgt. Foley, it led us to speculate who might be a good candidate to fill the shoes of a legend like Gossett. while standing taller than Miles Teller, who is reportedly 6 feet, 1 inch tall.
