Walker will be remembered as a matinee idol, but Clint Eastwood, Gary Ross and Richard Donner hired him before Fast was a phenomenon. RIP.
I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Paul Walker. He flew to an airport in NC to talk about a role in THE GREY. He was a total gentleman.
He was kind, thoughtful and could not have been nicer to myself and my wife. I’m shocked. It’s always the good ones that go too soon. RIP.
The thing about Paul Walker was, after seeing him in the criminally underrated RUNNING SCARED. You wondered how deep this kid could go…
I remember having the sense that this guy was gonna become an Eastwood-like actor as he got older. He was as smart as he was handsome.

Paul was a truly good person in a town of questionable characters. ..A real life tragedy if there ever was one.
