    In a bit of ironic news, the actor who plays Brian in the Fast and Furious movies, has died in a car crash today.

    Susan Hirasuna on twitter just confirmed it via sources close to the family.

    It says nothing about Paul Walker except in the facebook comments. Closed until a verifiable source can be found (not TMZ. Seriously.)

    If someone finds one, report the thread and we'll open it back up so OP or a mod can edit the source.

    Edit: Opened back up. Sad news. :(

    :( Dang! He had a good role in those movies, I liked his acting. I knew he was a good person. Such a young person. R.I.P, Paul Walker! :(
    I was just viewing his Twitter, and noticed he really wanted to help in the Haiyan crisis! :(

    No!! I think he was one of the coolest actors around and I love his movies. RIP Paul.

    Does anyone know if he finished filming his scenes in FF 7?

    I believe he finished shooting for Fast 7. But his Agent 47 movie (Hitman) is a no go.

    He was actually the passenger, in a test drive with a friend of a brand new Porche GT after a charity event raising money for the Phillipines, Unless the Car was plastic, does look like speed was involved, Apparently FATF7 principle photography was finished and it is in post, he also has a movie Hours coming out on Dec 13th

    This reminds me of Ryan Dunns passing, did billions of stunts time after time, died from drunk driving.
