    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    After 3 seconds thought, the phrase "Pyramid Scheme" came to mind.

    Just got into Fast & Furious a few months ago.

    Terrible news.

    RIP

    First thing I thought...
    Yes! That means it's not true.

    So so sad and random.

    I was never a big fan of F&F, but I had respect and admiration for Paul Walker as an actor. This is indeed very shocking and tragic news. RIP, Mr. Walker. :(

    1. He was 40? Looks 10 years younger.

    2. Awww. RIP. :(

    I'm a big fan of the F&F movies, so this is pretty surreal news. RIP Paul Walker.

    I hope I don't see too many crass and insensitive comments online from those who believe themselves to be somehow intellectually superior to the often maligned and criticised franchise. A young man has tragically lost his life.

    I am not a fan of car racing movies but I am sad to hear about his death. May he find eternal blissful sleep. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones.

    Me neither (I can't even drive) so I was rather surprised by how much I enjoyed the F&F stuff when I watched it thus year. Even went to the cinema to see the new one.

    Sad news.

    I had been forced to watch F&F on the job, and Mr. Walker never penetrated my consciousness. I remember him from Timeline, which I like better. By a coinincidence I watched him in Vehicle 19 two days ago and liked his performance (and the movie) even better.

    But regardless of how much you like his roles, it's a shame.

    No words to add really. I watched the Fast and the Furious movies, wasn't the biggest fan of them but looked forward to number 7 all the same. Too young. Sympathies to his family.

    There was a celebrity death hoax 3-4 days ago like the Morgan Freeman Jackie Chan Celine Dion, ironically it turned out to be tragically true

    I wonder how they will handle this in the F&F franchise. He's certainly filmed a chunk of the next film. I'd think they would use what they can and rewrite to make his character another victim of Statham's villain.

    Do you think that the franchise will continue without him after no 7 ?

    As we remember Paul Waker, we should also remember Roger Rodas, the other victim of this tragedy.

    @ Relayer1: I move that we keep such discussions to the F&F 7 thread. I'm sure there'll be plenty to chew on in the days ahead.
