James Van Der Beek Pays Tribute to Paul WalkerBy: Ann Casano - December 14, 2013
“Effortlessly golden,” that is the way that James Van Der Beek described his friend Paul Walker. Van Der Beek took to Twitter on Thursday in a touching Throwback Thursday Tribute (#tbt) after finding a few pieces of old movie memorabilia.
One piece in particular brought the Dawson’s Creek actor to tears, a poster from their high school football drama Varsity Blues. The coming of age film was released in 1999 and depicts the high school football as religion environment of small town Texas life.
The poster captures the two young men on the sidelines during a pivotal game. In the film, Van Der Beek’s character steps in as the quarter back after Walker’s character suffers an injury. Walker acts as a sort of coach on the sidelines in the film.
Van Der Beek also posted a picture of the Varsity Blues Playbook and one of their Hook and Ladder plays.
The Fast & Furious star passed away on November 30th from injuries sustained in an automobile accident. The funeral service is being held this afternoon.
