Reel vs. Real: Val Kilmer as Jim Morrison · Lomography

  • The Doors (1991) Official Movie Trailer

  • Val Edward Kilmer (born December 31, 1959) is an American actor. Originally a stage actor, Kilmer became popular in the mid-1980s after a string of appearances in comedy films, starting with Top Secret! (1984), then the cult classic Real Genius (1985), as well as the military action film Top Gun (1986). A couple of his other notable film roles include Jim Morrison in The Doors (1991), Doc Holliday in Tombstone.

    'The Doors' is a 1991 American biographical film about the 1960–70s rock band of the same name which emphasizes the life of its lead singer, Jim Morrison. It was directed by Oliver Stone, and stars Val Kilmer as Morrison and Meg Ryan as Pamela Courson (Morrison's companion). The film features Kyle MacLachlan as Ray Manzarek, Frank Whaley as Robby Krieger, Kevin Dillon as John Densmore, and Kathleen Quinlan as Patricia Kennealy.

    The film portrays Morrison as the larger-than-life icon of 1960s rock and roll, counterculture, and the drug-using free love hippie lifestyle. But the depiction goes beyond the iconic: his alcoholism, interest in hallucinogenic drugs as entheogens, and, particularly, his growing obsession with death are threads which weave in and out of the film. The film was not well received by his band mates, close friends, and family, due to its depiction of Morrison.

    Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Johnny Depp, and Richard Gere were the actors considered to play the part of Jim Morrison.  In 1986, Stone considered Val Kilmer to star as Morrison after watching him in the fantasy film Willow.

    Val Kilmer had to go to therapy after he finished filming Oliver Stone’s The Doors because he couldn’t shake his character. He played Jim Morrison in the biopic.
