TAKERS

PAUL WALKER (John Rahway) Having captured the attention of audiences and industry execs alike with his undeniable on-screen presence, Walker has managed a balance of box-office films, dramatic roles, and documentaries to elevate his leap to leading man status on both the small and big screen. 

Walker found his breakout as undercover cop Brian O'Conner in the The Fast and the Furious franchise. Walker will star in the upcoming fifth edition of The Fast and the Furious which will start filming this summer. 

Walker is not only brave in his films. Last November, Paul was seen on National Geographic Channel's "Expedition Great White”, a documentary devoted to exploring the excitement and dangers of one of natures most challenging and dangerous creatures. Walker teamed up with Marine biologists to journey off the coasts of Baja, California in order to track how these SUV-sized predators live.

Walker displayed his versatility transforming on-screen into a soldier under the direction of Clint Eastwood, an Arctic research scientist in a Disney family adventure, and a New Jersey mobster in a gritty independent feature.

In 2006, Clint Eastwood cast him in his World War II drama, Flags of our Fathers: Heroes of Iowa Jima, for Universal. Walker portrayed Hank Hansen, a seasoned soldier fighting in that infamous battle. That same year he starred in Disney's box-office hit Eight Below, portraying Jerry Shepherd, a lead research scientist who was forced to abandon his team of sled dogs. Directed by Frank Marshall, the film follows the heroic survival of the dogs through six months in the harsh Antarctica winter and Jerry's quest to organize a rescue mission to bring them home. In Running Scared, a thriller written and directed by Wayne Kramer (The Cooler), Paul starred with Vera Farmiga as a desperate father trying to protect his son after a tangle up with the mob in a cop shooting.

Walker starred opposite Jessica Alba as divers and aspiring treasure hunters in the 2005 Sony/Mandalay Pictures action-thriller, Into the Blue, for director John Stockwell. He starred alongside Susan Sarandon, Penelope Cruz, Robin Williams and Alan Arkin in Chazz Palminteri's 2004 directorial debut, Noel, about a group of New Yorkers who come together on Christmas Eve.

In 2003, Walker co-starred in director Richard Donner's adaptation of Michael Crichton's novel, Timeline, for Paramount Pictures. He also starred in John Singleton's 2 Fast 2 Furious, (grossing more than $127 million), the sequel to The Fast and The Furious. Walker also co-starred with Steve Zahn and Leelee Sobieski in the critically praised thriller, Joy Ride, which was directed by John Dahl (Rounders) for 20th Century Fox in 2001.

Walker's additional credits include the box office hits The Skulls directed by Rob Cohen about a Harvard secret elitist society, and the football dramedy, Varsity Blues for Paramount Pictures. He was also seen in the critically acclaimed film, Pleasantville from New Line Cinema. This fantasy drama, from writer/director Gary Ross, is about two 1990's teens (Reece Witherspoon and Tobey McGuire) who get trapped in a 1950's "Leave it to Beaver” type television show.

Further credits include Miramax's She's All That, and Brokedown Palace for 20th Century Fox and the independent action drama The Death and Life of Bobby Z.
