Val Kilmer: Aging Action Hero Now a Bed-and-Breakfast Owner

"It's very upsetting for my friends," he told the newspaper. "I'm not worried at all about the reaction because I just see it as an opportunity to bring people together. No one would make a false statement like this statement of racism if they knew what we were doing."

Meanwhile, it seems as if Kilmer's priority is to turn his ranch into a cash cow. He put the property on the market last year for $33 million. Pam Sawyer, Kilmer's ranch manager, told the Albuquerque Journal in March that they were planning to charge $200 per guest for a night at Pecos River once they obtained the proper permits. When his bed-and-breakfast agenda stalled, Kilmer loaned his land out to his film industry friends.

Earlier this year, Norwegian designer Elise Øverland used the ranch as a backdrop for a short film about Wicca, according to Vanity Fair. And Kilmer's helping the Santa Fe Film Festival raise funds by selling ranch gigs -- for $500, a would-be wrangler can be a range boss for the day; for $250, they can serve as a ranch hand.

As for his own involvement in film, Kilmer's latest role bears a resemblance to his current (maybe now, former?) status as San Miguel County's persona non grata: Dieter Von Cunth, the nuclear warhead-hoarding villain in "MacGruber."
