Whoa! Paul Walker's brother Cody is a spitting image of his late sibling and having the look alike on set of Fast & Furious 7must have been strange for fellow castmates Vin Diesel, Ludacris, Michelle Rodriguez and especially for Jordana Brewster as she gave her on-screen love interest a kiss.

Fans on the beach in Malibu did a double-take as Cody filled in for his brother -- sibling Caleb is also slated to shoot some scenes. Producers announced in April the actor's brothers would stand in for Paul in some remaining action sequences after Walker died in a fiery car crash in November.

In the statement released by production, the top guns explained, "We have resumed shooting and now welcome Paul’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, into our Fast family. Caleb and Cody are helping us complete some remaining action for their brother and fill in small gaps left in production. Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us too."

Vin Diesel Posts Awkward Video Of Himself Lip Syncing And Dancing To Katy Perry And Beyonce

Jan 28, 2014 11:35 AM

Drunk in love is one thing -- but umm is Vin Diesel drunk and Facebooking?

Taking a page from the Taylor Swift School of Dance, the action star showed off his moves when he posted a sort of bizarre, sort of hilarious, all sorts of awkward 7-minute, 29-second long video on his Facebook page of himself dancing and lip syncing and to both Katy Perry's hit "Dark Horse" and Beyonce's "Drunk in Love." Who knew he was such a fan of pop divas?!

There's over seven minutes of Vin posing and moving for the camera -- which means this is pretty much the most epic selfie of all time!

Vin looks totally sober -- and yet we are perplexed by both his "moves" and his desire to share this awkward clip with millions upon millions of people. But at least we get to see some of 46-year-old's patented moves. Our personal favorites are: "The Awkward Hunched Over Running Man," "The Awkward Pumping Up the Basketball," "The Awkward Robot Surfboard," "The Awkward Snip Snap, Double Clap," "The Awkward White Guy Head Bop," "The Awkward White Guy Sway," "The Awkward Twirl to You Fall Over," "The Awkward Lick the Camera," "The Awkward Picking Up the Loose Change" and the "OHMYGOD VIN DIESEL STOP DANCING AROUND BY YOURSELF, IT'S REALLY AWKWARD AND YOU ARE MAKING US UNCOMFORTABLE."

Along with the dance-tastic post, Vin wrote the caption, "You know I love music ..." The only thing it looks like buff star loves more than music is videos of himself dancing to music!

Midway through the vid, the "Fast and the Furious" star stops his dance party for one to share a heartfelt message with his 63 million Facebook fans: "Guys, I'm excited, I'm happy. Universal just called me and said Riddick is number one on the DVD charts." He continued, "It's a win for all of us. Really really want to thank you so much…" adding, "Of course Universal said they want to develop the next one." Way to multi-task! We applaud Vin's ability to combine lip syncing and self-promotion together to make one killer vid!

Vinny, while we love a free spirit, we aren't sure that lip syncing to Beyonce and Katy Perry probably the best way to squash those gay rumors -- but whatever your floats your boat! It definitely looks like you are having fun!

Vin Diesel Reveals New Release Date For Fast And Furious 7

Dec 23, 2013 08:45 AM


A little more than three weeks after Paul Walker's tragic and shocking death, his friend and co-star Vin Diesel revealed the new release date for Fast and Furious 7. Diesel posted the above photo on Facebook and added in a message:

    The last scene we filmed together…

    There was a unique sense of completion, of pride we shared… in the film we were now completing… the magic captured… and, in just how far we've come…

    Fast and Furious 7 will be released…

    April 10th 2015!

    P.s. He'd want you to know first…

Walker and longtime pal Roger Rodas died when the actor's Porsche GT crashed into a pole and caught on fire on November 30. The Los Angeles County coroner said that the actor died from "combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries." The two were at a car show to raise money for the victims of the typhoon in the Philippines.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie was only halfway through shooting, but Walker will appear in it, using footage shot prior to his death. Production was put on hold earlier this month, and the original release date was set for July 2014.

Vin Diesel Remembers Paul Walker In Touching Tribute Video

Dec 3, 2013 08:30 AM

This is all so sad!

Following Paul Walker's tragic death from a car crash, his Fast and the Furious co-star Vin Diesel is breaking his silence to memorialize his friend in a series of touching tributes.

The action star visited the Santa Clarita crash site and addressed fans on a police loudspeaker to thank them for their love and support of the deceased single father.

    "I just want to say to all of you, if my brother were here right now and he saw all of the love you are bringing here... If he could see for himself that all of you have shown up to show my brother love… at this hard time his family gets to see all of you show the love that you've shown Paul. It's going to stay with me forever. I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for coming down here and showing that angel up in heaven how much you appreciate him," he told fans.

Not only that, but Diesel updated his Facebook page with a picture of the pair and a sweet message about how much "Pablo", as he calls him, impacted the world.

    "Pablo, I wish you could see the world right now... and the profound impact, your full life has had on it, on Us... on me…I will always love you Brian," he gushed, referencing Walker's Fast and Furious character, "as the brother you were... on and off screen."

Fellow co-star Michelle Rodriguez also expressed her love for Walker in a heartfelt Twitter post.

    "I'm gonna carry this torch for you brother, with a forced smile on my face and Im gonna open my heart just cause your telling me to," she wrote.

What an impact he made on the lives of others!

Vin Diesel Says Fast Five Should Get Oscar Buzz

May 10, 2011 01:30 PM

Diesel230.1.jpgFast Five has been generating huge box office numbers, but ... Oscar buzz?

As of Tuesday, the movie had already earned $140 million in ticket sales in North America and almost $200 million overseas. For the fifth film in a franchise, that's pretty impressive. A sixth movie is now in the works thanks to the fifth's success.

But franchise star Vin Diesel seems to think Fast Five has even more potential ... Academy Award potential. The actor told the Los Angeles Times that the films are successful because they reach middle America, but that they're much more than just middle-of-the-road movies.

    "I wouldn't be surprised if there is some Oscar talk around this ... sooner or later, people are gonna say, 'Wait a minute, just because they are for the working class doesn't mean they're not great.'"

What do you think -- does Fast Five deserve an Oscar?
