Paul Walker's 25-year-old brother Cody Walker has confirmed that he will be replacing Paul Walker in the film Fast And Furious 7. Cody announced on his Facebook account on Dec 16 that he will be playing the role of Brian O'Conner in the film.
Cody's Facebook page says, "See You Soon In F&F!" and has received more than 5,994 likes.
Reportedly, the makers of the film wanted someone who looked like Paul Walker. Regarding the choice of Cody a source has told Dailymail.com, "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, adding, "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. 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."
So will Cody be able to do justice to Paul's character Brian O'Conner?
Brian O'Conner is one of the three lead protagonists of the film who is interested in muscle cars. In the fourth part of the film, Brian is pardoned for his crimes and becomes a FBI agent. He is given a task to capture a drug trafficker. In the film Brian is at the forefront of racing scene and later he becomes a skilled mechanic of the highly evolved cars.
He owns Nissan Skyline GT-R R34's (one in the second movie and one in the fourth), Nissan C10 Skyline and finally a Nissan GT-R which late actor Paul Walker was supposed to drive in "Fast And Furious 7."
Cody is a stuntmen by profession and has the looks and body of a FBI agent and of a car enthusiast. Also as the makers of the film believe, Cody will be able to match Walker's body language. Our only worry is Cody's age. He is 15-years younger to Paul. So will he be able to bring that maturity to Walker's character?
