    When Walker first hit the movie scene …. I thought he was a Keanu Reeves rip off ….. I mean he acted literally like Reeves….. but with time …. he turned out to be pretty good ….. I truly liked the Fast and Furious series ….. it is hard to make a great series about stealing cars …. but they did it. Walker was excellent. Reeves and Walker both got better as they aged.

    I still hold out hope that he is alive. After all, TMZ is a garbage show and website. They get more wrong than they do right.

    Let’s hope he is alive.

      Unfortunately with a accident like that a body Wont be shown it wouldn’t even be recognizable if you did and the site would be so gruesome that you may never see it I’ve seen alot of accidents and by looking at it they both should have died instantly b4 the vehicle ever cought fire even so if he wasn’t in that vehicle people still died and and our hearts should Go out to them.
