Updated on March 21, 2014

Roumors are quickly spreading throughout the film industry, that a younger brother of the now-late Paul Walker, might be playing Brian O'connor in the last few scenes of "Fast and the furious 7". Cody Walker, 25 years old, which resembles Paul Walker in many ways, has yet to release his decision in accepting the role as Brian O'connor, but numerous media centers across the web are reporting that the offer, is in fact, still standing.

Cody Walker, is not unfamiliar with the movie industry. Cody reportedly lives in Oregon and works as a stuntman.

Universal Pictures had immediately ceased filming of the newest installment of the "Fast and Furious" films, after the tragic and unfortunate death of Paul Walker, which had put the movies production into a dead zone, which had previously been set for launch on July 11, 2014. Its unknown if this date is still possible.

Sources state that movie executives and producers had reached out to Cody Walker, Brian's younger brother, who has very similar features to the late Paul Walker, such as hair color, and had asked if he would be capable of finishing the film in his brothers absence. A source close to the production teams for the "Fast and Furious" movies, had reported that the producers have met multiple times after the unfortunate death of paul walker, and had reportedly stated they need someone who looked like Paul to help finish the movie, and that is when they had made an attempt to approach his somewhat identical brother, Cody Walker.

According to the source, producers had stated that Cody Walker, would work as a sort of stand-in for Brian O'connor and would most likely be filmed from a distance or from behind, and would look almost identical. It is believed that an close-up shots will be fixed with computer animated graphics and makeup to make Cody Walker, appear to be Paul Walker

Producers state that if Cody agrees to play Brian O'connor in the newest installment of "Fast and Furious" movie, then he will be doing so to honor his brother's memory, and that there are more details that still are in the process of being hammered out, though right now the cast and crew, and Paul's family are still in mourning and greiving the loss of their beloved friend, co-worker, and family.

It is believed that after the seventh installment of the franchise, the movies will continue to be produced, and it even appears that the executives will continue to film without Paul Walker, despite his sudden and very tragic death. However,little information is known at this point.

      That is what I think as well I think it will be distasteful I kill him off in a car crash in the movie, and somewhat offensive to his tragic and untimely death. Paul walker was a really good guy outside if the limelight, and tried to keep all if the good things he did under wraps to avoid attention, it really shows how genuine he was.

      As for the movies, I think his brother might do a good job but they really will never be the same without Paul.

      This is an angle of this story I haven't seen anywhere else, it is a unique solution casting Paul Walker's brother in the movies. The one thing I don't get is seeing as the movies are about dangerous car chases why not just kill off the Walker's character? But maybe they are hesistant to do that since Walker's death involved a car crash.
