Now here’s an idea: The Daily Mail claims Paul Walker’s younger brother, Cody, has been approached to fill in for the late actor during the remaining filming of “Fast & Furious 7.”

Rumors keep changing, but the latest is that the filmmakers will finish the movie with what they already have and use Cody Walker to fill in the rest. “They soon realized they needed someone who looked like Paul to finish the movie and that’s when they approached his nearly identical brother,” says a source. “They can shoot Cody from behind and at a distance and if it’s a shot where they need Paul’s face close up they can CGI it later on.”

For now, the film is idling — Cody has yet to sign on, and Universal also hasn’t announced any definitive plans for the franchise.Cody WalkerFeaturesGossipPaul Walker
