    In any case, rest in peace.

    That's too bad. I always liked him in the FF movies and even in a few others like Varsity Blues. He seemed like a really chill guy in real life too.

    I was gonna say, this is an incredibly ironic way to die -- but a tragedy nonetheless. We'll see how the next film deals with it.

    My favorite films of his were Joy Ride and Running Scared. He was actually my first choice for Captain America too.

    I do not watch the F&F series, but didn't a major character just die in the film? Saw pics from the set at a funeral. They will probably rewrite this in honor of Walker.

    This is Sad news. He was soo good in Fast and Furious movies! I Know this might seem rude or selfish of me, do you think Fast and Furious 7 will have to be delayed to another year like 2015? I'm sorry if i sound rude or selfish in this post, in advance.

    I wonder how Fast & Furious 7 will proceed, and if Walker shot his scenes or not.

    So very heartbreaking news. Everyone swore it was a joke, I wonder how Vin Diesel is taking it. Damn I mean rarely do we see an actors death have so many parallels to his movie career. Forget the fact that he died in a car accident, but the only true F&F cast member that has actually died was Han who died in fiery car accident. Man, the passenger in a charity drive for the victims of the typhoon, absolutely horrible. I wonder what James Wann will do?

    According to Nikki Finke, a majority of footage was already shot. They had some shooting in Abu Dubai left to do, including a big action sequence. It's not clear if Paul Walker was to be a part of that set piece.

    Wow, I really hoped this was a hoax when I first heard the news.

    It'll be interesting to see how they write his character out in Fast 7.

    But damn, not a way to go out.

    Very sad, much too young and sudden.
    Not it will most likely do any good, but I encourage any interested parties to sign this petition.

    Unsurprisingly, I did not see this coming. My condolences to his family.

    A great story I just read about Paul Walker. About a decade ago, Walker was in a jewelry store when he noticed a young U.S. military soldier shopping with his fiance for a wedding ring. The soldier was just back from Iraq, but was going to be deployed again soon, and they wanted to get married before he left. However, they couldn't afford a ring, which was close to $10,000, so Walker paid for it. That's pretty awesome.

    RIP, Paul Walker
