Los Angeles, April 2 (IANS) Late actor Paul Walker's younger brothers Caleb and Cody Walker, stepped in to help finish “Furious 7” after their brother was killed in a car crash in November 2013 half way through the production. Now one of the brothers has been bitten by the acting bug.
As per sources, Paul's youngest brother Cody, 26, is getting in touch with Paul's manager Matt Luber at Luber Rocklin Entertainment and is taking meetings with Hollywood talent agencies, reports variety.com.
Cody, who had no prior professional acting experience before “Furious 7”, plans on pursuing film and television roles beyond the “Fast and Furious” franchise. However, it's unclear if there would be a role for him in any future instalments in the series.
After a lengthy production hiatus, due to the tragic death of star Paul Walker, both Caleb and Cody Walker joined the cast of “Furious 7” to stand in for their brother's scenes. Elaborate CGI was used by Peter Jackson's WETA effects house to complete the process.
In addition to pursuing acting, Cody is also the brand manager of his late brother's foundation Reach Out Worldwide, which helps emergency responders get into disaster-stricken areas.
“Furious 7” released in India on Thursday.
