Paul Walker's lookalike brother to star in more Fast & Furious films

03 June 2014, 10:58

Los Angeles - Paul Walker's lookalike brother is in talks to star in more Fast & Furious movies.

Cody Walker, who agreed to help finish Paul's final movie, Fast & Furious 7, as the late actor was in the middle of filming it when he died in a car crash last November, is reportedly set to secure a recurring role in the hit box office franchise after impressing producers with his acting skills.

A source told the MailOnline: Paul's character Brian O'Conner will be seen retiring, while his younger brother will join the crew.

"Of course, Cody isn't a replacement for Paul in any way, but the producers were really grateful that he stepped in to help them finish this last film and Cody is so likeable and charming.

"It would be a tribute to Paul that Cody carries on the Walker name in Fast & Furious movies."

Cody, 25, opened up about the death of his 40-year-old brother for the first time in April and admitted it still didn't feel real.

He said: "Right now, a whole lot of time has not gone by yet. It still doesn't feel real, because sometimes, working in this industry, making films, he'd be away from his family three, four, six months at a time, you know. And my only interaction would be a phone call. So, I know it's going to take a while."

Fast & Furious 7 is set to be released on 10 April 2015.
