Cody Walker as Brian O’Conner in ‘Fast and Furious 7′

Cody Walker

Rumor has it that Cody Walker has been tapped to replace big brother Paul Walker in Fast and Furious 7. Although there is no such confirmation on behalf of Universal Pictures, speculations about casting Walker are running high and fans are happy. The Fast and Furious 7 cast includes Vin Diesel, Nathalie Emmanuel, John Brotherton, Tyrese Gibson, Dwayne Johnson, Djimon Hounsou, Jason Statham, Lucas Black, Kurt Russell, and Tony Jaa. Paul Walker was supposed to play a pivotal role in Fast and Furious 7, and the younger Walker has been approached to play that role. If Walker agrees to play the role of Brian O’Connor in Fast and Furious 7, he will be shot from wider angles and from a distance so that CGI technology can be used to make him look like his brother. Fans of the Fast and Furious 7 series started posting script ideas to different social media streams.

The fans are quite happy about this decision, if this is implemented, and the internet is buzzing with positive reviews on this rumor. One tweet says, “Cody Walker, Paul Walker’s brother, will play in the new FF7 movie. Good choice.” Another tweet says, “Paul Walker’s younger brother, Cody Walker, the best of the best choices.” Not only tweets, but Facebook, LinkedIn, Google Plus, StumbleUpon and many such social sites has brought out the verdict of the fans. Again, these are only speculations, but it does prove the emotional connect that the older Walker had with his fans.

Fast and Furious 7 Director James Wan and Universal Pictures decided to approach Walker after much thought; Cody Walker is basically a lookalike of Paul Walker. Although Fast and Furious 7 may cast the Walker in his brother’s role, he has not yet commented regarding this issue. Fans did have a mixed bag reaction, but mainly positive reviews flowed through the media seemingly happy with the idea. Casting the younger Walker to play Brian O’Connor will also be a wise decision in keeping the spirit of the film and the sentiment of the fan followers. Vin Diesel’s character Dom Toretto also needs to be complemented on-screen, and who can do it better than Paul Walker’s own brother? It is speculated that the movie is going to garner a lot of revenue throughout the world, especially in the United States.

Cody Walker worked as a stuntman in the movie industry and appears an appropriate candidate for the role of Brian O’Connor. Fast and Furious 7 was originally scheduled for release during the summer of 2014; however, that has been postponed. The possible casting of Walker, who is 15 years younger than brother Paul, has come behind another rumor of Justin Bieber as Brian O’Connor. Fans were not happy with that idea, evidenced by viral comments like: “I’m sorry, Justin Bieber isn’t good enough,” and “Justin Bieber replacing Paul in Fast and the Furious 7 oh kill me now.” So, the Fast and Furious 7 can really garner a lot of revenue if the casting of Cody Walker is finalized to play Brian in the film, especially when the fans are happy. Agree or disagree? What do you think?

    It will be more attractive if cody will eventually agree to play his late brother role, but for bieber, it does not make sence
