FAST & FURIOUS 6

Having captured the attention of audiences and industry execs alike with his undeniable on-screen presence, PAUL WALKER (Brian O'Conner) has man aged a balance of suc cess ful box- office films, dramatic roles and documentaries to elevate his leap to leading-man status on the big screen. Apart from headlining the box-office hit Fast Five, opposite Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson, Walker was most recently seen in the post-Hurricane Katrina suspense-thriller Hours, which he executive produced. Hours premiered at the 2013 SXSW Film Conference & Festival, receiving very positive reviews for both the film and Walker's performance.

Among Walker's upcoming projects is the action crime-drama Brick Mansions, about an undercover cop trying to take down a ruthless crime lord. The film is set to begin production this May in Montreal and will be released by Relativity Media next year.

Walker previously co-starred alongside Idris Elba, Matt Dillon and Hayden Christensen in Screen Gems' crime-action movie Takers, and in Fast & Furious, the fourth installment of the blockbuster series. In November 2009, Walker was seen on National Geographic Channel's Expedition Great White, a documentary devoted to exploring the dangers of one of nature's most challenging and perilous creatures. Walker teamed up with marine biologists to journey off the coast of Baja California, in order to track how these SUV-sized predators live.

Walker has displayed his versatility by continuously transforming on-screen. We saw him as a soldier in Clint Eastwood's World War II drama Flags of our Fathers, for Paramount Pictures in 2006. That same year, he starred in Disney's box-office hit Eight Below, directed by Frank Marshall, portraying Jerry Shepard, a lead research scientist who was forced to abandon his team of sled dogs. In Running Scared, a thriller written and directed by Wayne Kramer (The Cooler), Walker starred with Vera Farmiga. He portrayed a desperate father trying to protect his son after a tangle-up with the mob in a cop shooting. Walker starred opposite Jessica Alba in the action-thriller Into the Blue, for director John Stockwell. He starred alongside Susan Sarandon, 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 and starred in John Singleton's 2 Fast 2 Furious, the sequel to The Fast and the Furious, which grossed more than $127 million at the box office. In 2001, Walker starred opposite Steve Zahn and Leelee Sobieski in 20th Century Fox's critically praised thriller Joy Ride, which was directed by John Dahl.

Walker's additional credits include the box-office hit The Skulls, directed by Rob Cohen; the football dramedy Varsity Blues; the critically acclaimed film Pleasantville, from writer/director Gary Ross; Miramax's She's All That; Brokedown Palace; and The Death and Life of Bobby Z.
