Val Kilmer, yes, the star of "Batman Forever," to channel "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" author Mark Twain in solo show
Val Kilmer, having portrayed Doors frontman Jim Morrison, will adopt the persona of another literary giant this weekend: Mark Twain.
"Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" star Kilmer will play "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" author Twain in the workshop production of his "Citizen Twain" at the Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles in downtown L.A.

Kilmer unleashed his one-man show earlier this year at the Masonic Lodge at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, after showing it in development at various venues, including Walt Disney Concert Hall.
The solo show "Citizen Twain," which Kilmer wrote in addition to directing and starring in, explores "the famed author's wry humor, his successes and tragedies of his later life, which included bankruptcy, and a soul-searching feud with Christian Science founder Mary Baker Eddy."
Better get your tickets now, though, because Kilmer won't be sporting the 'stache and cigar forever: The production runs only from Oct. 19 and 20.
Select tickets will include a post-show meet-and-greet with Kilmer, so you can ask him in person what in the world he was thinking with "Batman Forever."
