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.
