Photos taken this week on the Malibu set of Fast & Furious 7 reveal Cody Walker standing in for his brother as he walks the beach with Jordana Brewster — who plays O'Conner's wife, Mia Toretto — and their on-screen son, Jack.
It was a rare moment of speechlessness for Vin Diesel. Accepting his MTV Movie Award in the Best On-Screen Duo category, the actor was seen in a video posted to Facebook just today choking up and overcome with emotion as he spoke about his co-recipient, the late Paul Walker. The two actors and friends won for their big screen pairing in last year’s summer action hit “Fast & Furious 6.” But it wasn’t until a day after the show that the acceptance speech hit the web. "But I know he’s here in spirit." The tears began to run however as Diesel finshed his thought: “Thank you for honoring me, and more importantly thank you for honoring that angel, my brother Paul Walker.” [Related: The Rock Opens Up About Paul Walker’s Death: My Heart Hurts for His Daughter] The taped tribute by Diesel, posted to his Facebook page on Monday, was actually supposed to air during Sunday night’s show, Yahoo Movies has learned. Diesel couldn’t be at Sunday’s show because he was on location outside of the country, filming “Fast & Furious 7.” "Back in 2002 it was you, the MTV audience, that first acknowledged this brotherhood between Paul Walker and myself — by honoring us with the best team on film,” Diesel said in his speech.
"Fast & Furious 7" has found a way to go on shooting without Paul Walker. Cody Walker, in his mid-twenties and the youngest of the three Walker brothers, is a trained paramedic and now works with is late brother’s Reach Out Worldwide charity. Caleb Walker is in his late thirties.
