Paul Walker left a heartbreakingly empty void on November 30, 2013, in the hearts of his family, friends, and fans alike.  His professional colleagues, including The Fast and the Furious family, of which he was a member from the beginning, must be feeling a particularly emotional blow.  Not only have they lost a friend, but a vital component of the seventh installment of the popular series currently filming, is now absent.  While the personal aspect of the loss most definitely eclipses the professional one, the film's team needed to address the situation in an appropriate and timely fashion.  It appears as though they may have found the answer with Paul's little brother. Twenty-five year old Cody Walker, trained professional stuntman, has been slated to fill in for brother Paul in "The Fast and the Furious 7."  Said to be an almost look-alike for his older famous sibling, Cody will appear as Paul, playing character Brian O'Conner.  Given the obvious physical resemblance as well as Cody's action film experience, this solution makes sense.  Production has decided to employ CGI special effects to compensate for any close-up differences on film.  While Paul is certainly irreplaceable, this may be one compromise that will satisfy fans and personal family of Walker alike, given the fact that his family member will be directly involved in the production. This news has come amidst a flurry of activity around the world celebrating the beloved actor. Celebrities such as Alyssa Milano, Tyrese Gibson, and Vin Diesel, have taken to social media to express their grief.  Fans have revved their engines, brought souvenirs, flowers, and stuffed animals to the Santa Clarita accident site to show their love and admiration.  On December 14th, his close friends and family gathered in Hollywood Hills in honor of "a great guy." While Ben Harper movingly paid tribute to Paul in song, "The Fast and the Furious" family released a loving memorial of their own on YouTube.  Featuring film of Walker and his costars, the video showcases Paul "In Loving Memory" doing what he loved best at work.  The YouTube film also comments on how much the outpouring of love and goodwill from around the world means to Paul's family, and how any donations to his charity Reach Out WorldWide (ROWW) would be greatly appreciated in lieu of gifts. Paul Walker's career and personal endeavors of charity, and marine and wildlife appreciation, have created a lasting impression of respect and admiration amongst fans and colleagues alike.  If Paul's brother Cody is even somewhat of a reflection of his older sibling, he is sure to be welcomed with open arms into "The Fast and the Furious" family.  There are sure to be tears, but hopefully ones accompanied by joy for "one of the good guys." http://www.Twitter.com/PopWrapped https://pop-wrapped.tumblr.com http://www.SoundCloud.com/PopWrapped http://www.Facebook.com/PopWrapped http://www.Instagram.com/PopWrapped http://www.Pinterest.com/PopWrapped http://www.YouTube.com/PopWrapped https://pop-wrapped.wordpress.com http://www.PopWrapped.com
