    Paul Walker's brother to fill in for late star in 'Fast & Furious 7?'

    Published December 14, 2013

    According to the Daily Mail newspaper, Paul Walker’s younger brother has been approached to fill in for his brother to film the final scenes of “Fast & The Furious 7.” The 40-year-old star was on a break from filming when he died in a fiery car wreck two weeks ago.

    Production on the film was immediately shut down and Universal Pictures announced that they were “dedicated to providing support to Paul’s immediate family and our extended Fast & Furious family of cast, crew and filmmakers.”
    However the Daily Mail reports that the producers have been involved in numerous meetings to decide the best way to finish the film. "They soon realized they needed someone who looked like Paul to finish the movie and that's when they approached his nearly identical brother, Cody," a source close to production told the British newspaper.
    Cody Walker, 25, is a stunt man who lives in Oregon but has been staying in Los Angeles to help his mother since his brother’s death.
    "They can shoot Cody from behind and at distance and if it's a shot they need Paul's face in close up they can CGI it later on,” the source added. “If Cody agrees it's because he wants to honor his brother's memory. There are many details that still need to be worked out, but right now the family and cast and crew are all still grieving."
    Universal Pictures told The Daily Mail that right now no decisions have been made.
    "At this time we feel it is our responsibility to shut down production on Fast & Furious 7 for a period of time so we can assess all options available to move forward with the franchise. We are committed to keeping Fast & Furious fans informed, and we will provide further information to them when we have it. Until then, we know they join us in mourning the passing of our dear friend Paul Walker."

    They should hire Eric the Actor to play the burnt up corpse of Paul Walker.

    I'd pay to see that movie.

    You're right, his other brother actually looks more like him.

    It's a good sign. It means slow news week and nothing too vile is going on.

    What was the last Pacino or Deniro film you enjoyed - Heat?

    Paul Walker was the star of a film franchise making billions of dollars.

    It is true. He was one of the greatest american actors no heterosexual male has ever known. I am sure you will miss him.
