Paul Walker, the star of the Fast & Furious franchise, as well as films such as Into The Blue, Takers, and the upcoming Hours, has been killed in a vehicle accident, in California.

Walker came to prominence in the original Fast & Furious film in 2001, although he had appeared in small roles in films prior, including Pleasantville (as one of the inhabitants of that sitcom-inspired world), and young-adult thriller The Skulls. Following The Fast & The Furious, Walker would go on to star in the sequel, 2 Fast 2 Furious, before leaving the franchise temporarily, until he returned alongside Vin Diesel in Fast & Furious, the fourth installment, and then Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6, and the upcoming Fast & Furious 7, due out in 2014. Among his other credits, Walker appeared in heist flick Takers, the Richard Donner helmed sci-fi bomb Timeline, Frank Marshall’s Disney-dog effort, Eight Below, Clint Eastwood’s Flags Of Our Fathers, and most recently in Vehicle 19, his passion project Hours (set in and around the events of Hurricane Katrina), and The Lazarus Project.

Paul Walker was 40 at his passing, on November 30th, and is survived by his daughter, Meadow.

    1. This is news that’s just shitty, flat out shitty. I just hope they got what they needed to finish F&F7 without him around, and can find a way of giving him a proper send off in the franchise.

    1. Agreed, what a waste of a young life. I've enjoyed the majority of films Walker has been in, although I have to say it's often in spite of him, not thanks to him. I have it on good authority that Running Scared is a film in which he's above average, so I have that lined up to check out over the next week or so on my television.
