    Pretty sure his agent wouldn't announce it if he was alive and universal where they were filming wouldn't be delayed
    The rumor mill is saying that Paul Walker is actually not dead. I haven't seen any confirmation on it, but then again, I haven't seen any for his death either.
    Likewise it would not have been on IMDB. IMDB is a highly credible source for Hollywood and actors, everything is fact verified before being posted.

    He's has certainly passed...there is no truth to those rumors...

    In a sea of scum in Hollywood, this guy stood out (to me at least) as one that went against that grain, and truly made a difference as well as providing excellent films to enjoy. The Fast and The Furious movies are some of my favorite action movies, and it just so happened that my wife started in locations on the most recent film about a week ago...Paul Walker was due to come back to Atlanta and film many of his key shots, so we found out about this early and it was quite sad to hear and take in...it seems to have really sent a shock wave through the project too (obviously, since many of them have worked together intimately for the last decade or more). The world lost a great person, and I pray for peace and hope for his family.

    But not just Mr. Walker's family...the driver, Roger Rodas, as well. Multiplying this loss is the fact that it came during the holidays...I can only hope and pray the friends and family find peace with each other. RIP to both of them.

    Not only fact verified, but most times, even to get projects added to a profile (much less changes like birth/death dates) require submitted proof. I handle my wife's IMDB so I know this from having done it so many times over the last couple of years.

    Maybe his twitter and FB accounts were hacked reporting his death. Smh. Usually also run a personal assistant or publicist.

    R.I.P. Paul Walker a solid individual that went way before his time. We should not kid ourselves though by saying he was a great actor ... he wasn't even a good actor. Paul Walker had muscles & a pretty face. He got lucky by association of being in a franchise of extremely entertaining, but infamously bad teenage movies about import cars.
    I remember him from Y&R years and years ago. He wasn't Olivier, but saying he wasn't a good actor is simply YOUR opinion.

    One I strongly disagree with, incidentally.

    Just like Justin Bieber fans thinks he's a good singer (he's not). Because someone achieves a certain level of success at what they do does not make them necessarily good at what they do.

    My heart goes out to his daughter. I don't generally like kids at all but no child deserves to lose one of their parents that young.

    My sister and I both lost our mother when we were young but my sister was 15 when it happened. She was the same age as Paul's daughter.

    The photos of Tyrese Gibson breaking down at the crash site the next day made me tear up.

    He was excellent at what he did. Stallone, Schwarzenegger and Van Damme were all excellent at what they did. Are they bringing home academy awards for their projects? Of course not, they're action stars. Go get Morgan Freeman and put him in a role like these and he falls flat on his face...can he win a room full of awards? He sure can, but he's no action star.

    I suppose you look for Emmy awards every time you turn on the TV? You only listen to grammy award winning singers? Give me a break.

    The guy was solid at what he did. He was a great action movie actor. If he wasn't, he wouldn't have found the success he did. And the level of success a person achieves is DIRECTLY related to how good they are at what they do.

    I can think of something you're good at but the mods would probably ban me if I said what it was.

    We get it. You hate him. Move on.

    It's a tragedy when anyone dies, especially in a manner as horrific as Paul and Roger did.

    Really Sean, I figured if you were going to jump on this bandwagon you'd bring a little more to the table than just reenforcing my point. Stallone, Schwarzenegger and Van Damme are all bad actors that rose to fame simply on the vehicles they were in, rather any skills as actors they possessed. No I don't look for awards when I'm choosing what I view, and listen too. Awards in themselves can be very political and not a end all means for choosing one's entertainment, but it's very seldom that we see a truly bad actor, or show win one.

    Please note that your opinions of Mr. Walker is not a problem, however, it can be considered in poor taste to speak ill of someone who has just passed away. That's all.

    Exactly.

    I respect Not Quite Right's opinion of Paul's acting. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I simply think there is zero need to bring up that opinion in this thread, in light of his tragic passing. His acting aside, he was someone's son, someone's father, someone's friend... and all in all, a great guy and humanitarian. His success in Hollywood, deserved or not, enabled him to help a lot of people.

    I was hoping you would retort with this...call it a bit of bait if you will. You call it a vehicle...the movie they were in, and I deduce that you're reflecting that these "actors" are only viewed as good because the movie fits their skill set, correct? Not that they are actually good at acting, but that the movie presents an environment that they find success in?

    So what is an actor? What "vehicle" differentiates a good actor from a bad actor? Many people saw Heath Ledger as a bad actor before his depiction of the Joker in The Dark Knight. So if we go by vehicles, bad actors can become good actors in a matter of one film.

    To be truthful, this isn't about "vehicles" at all...this is about the appeal of a certain personality that an actor brings to a project. Tom Cruise is a perfect example...he's Tom Cruise in EVERY movie he makes...and people love him because of it. He's fantastic at what he does...and Paul Walker is no different. Type cast? Sure! But to say the guy isn't good at what he does is ridiculous...and what does he do? He acts.

    There's no band wagon here that I've jumped on. This is how I feel...whether it's me solo or a thousand other people right behind me. The truth is, you said he wasn't a good actor in a general sense...and in saying such, you were wrong. Not a good actor to you? I'm ok with that, that's an opinion. Not a good actor compared to "X"? Sure! Again, opinions and such. But saying the guy was not good at what he did, and was simply successful because he was in a popular movie is asinine...why? Because he did it again, and again, and again and again...not just in one franchise, but several. He was the likes of James Dean or Steve McQueen in our modern cinema...these are screen legends, and he falls right in line with those types.

    Personally, I can't stand Tyler Perry. I think he's a hack personally, and his films are stereotypical junk in my opinion. All that said...I wouldn't even begin to argue he isn't good at what he does. It doesn't appeal to me at all, but I can accept that it's successful work by a person with skills at what he does.

    Woe is me much? You said you thought he was a bad actor, people disagreed. It should have ended there. The only spinning being done is the continuation of this ridiculous argument. That being said, yes this is hypocritical as I am continuing the argument by pointing out that it's beyond pointless. I'll take that hit, but my part is this matter ends here.

    Paul Walker had many fans, he died in an accident, he died too young, it sucks, for anyone, RIP.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but Success=Good

    You contradicted yourself. If you're successful at something, then you must be good at it.

Oh well too bad we lost a good looking but crappy actor..."

    Yeah, paraphrasing and all but that was absolutely the way it sounded and it made my skin crawl.

    And now that he got called in it, the martyr complex kicks in.
