Cody Walker, the brother of the late Paul Walker, has a ton of weight being put on his shoulders right now. Read on for the 5 fast facts on Cody as well as what the latest news is with FF7.


1. Cody Has Been Reportedly Asked to Replace His Brother

According to the Daily Mail, Cody Walker has been asked to fill his late brother’s shoes in Fast & the Furious 7. A source close to the production crew stated:

Producers had a string of meetings right after Paul’s death. 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.

Stepping in for his brother in an action movie shouldn’t physically be a difficult adjustment for Cody because he’s actually a movie stuntman. He’s also 15 years younger than his older brother Paul.


3. Clearly, Cody Is Not Paul

Obviously, Cody Walker is not his brother Paul, though the two look quite alike. In order to side-step this, the crew is coming up with different ways to film him.

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.


4. It Was First Rumored That Justin Bieber Would Replace Paul Walker

Justin Bieber was rumored to be replacing Paul Walker at first, but it seems pretty clear that Cody is going to be the top choice. Cody lives in Oregon, so he would have to stay in Los Angeles, California for filming if he chooses to take on the role of his brother in FF7.

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.

Currently, Cody has been staying with his mother Cheryl in Los Angeles so that he can comfort her as the family grieves the loss of Paul.


5. Paul’s Brother and Family Will Have Say in His Fast & Furious Exit

Apparently, the Fast & Furious crew wants Paul Walker’s family to be fully included in how they will proceed with the future of character Brian O’Connor. Daily Mail reports:

Universal have also made it clear they will work with the Walker family and take their guidance on a fitting exit for Paul’s Fast & Furious character, Brian O’Connor, according to the source.
