Paul Walker's Lookalike Brother to 'Replace' Him in Fast and Furious 7

Fast & Furious star Paul Walker's younger brother, Cody Walker, 25, who looks almost like Paul, is expected to fill in for the late actor in the seventh edition of the movie. Cody has previously worked as a movie stuntman.
The makers of the runaway hit franchise, who held a series of meetings after Paul's death, reportedly realised that they needed someone who looked like Paul to finish the movie and they approached his nearly identical brother, Cody, a source close to the production stated.

Pictures may restart production on Fast & Furious 7 as early as January, if the latest script
rewrite by Chris Morgan is approved by the studio. At the time of Paul Walker's tragic 
death, the actor still had more scenes to film, and the studio is currently mulling over 
whether or not to start the movie entirely from scratch, or continuing production with 
scenes they had already shot with Paul Walker. 






Today, we have word that the studio has asked the late actor's younger brother, 25-year-old Cody Walker, to fill in for him when shooting gets back under way. "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. 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.
