Early Career: For the first twenty years of his life Paul spent most of his time in television, he managed to get one season as a regular in ‘Throb’, but guest appearances would carry him through his adolescences. He did end up in two films ‘Tammy and the T-Rex’ (opposite Dennis Richards) and ‘Meet the Deedles’ (opposite Dennis Hopper) which would be the only ones that I hadn’t heard off before getting a chance in a bigger film.

Break Out Role: In 2001 Paul got a chance at a more adult role when he was cast in ‘The Fast and the Furious’ opposite Vin Diesel. It was a huge success, it broke him out of the teen star typecast and opened the door to a range of different roles.1

Running Scared

Career: After making a quick sequel to ‘Fast and the Furious’ with ‘2 Fast 2 Furious’, Paul went on to make a full range of films. Time travel adventure ‘Timeline’, Christmas film ‘Noel’, under water adventure ‘Into the Blue’, violent actioner ‘Running Scared’ and Disney tearjerker ‘Eight Below’. In 2006 Paul had a supporting part in Clint Eastwood’s ‘Flags of Our Fathers’ with the film getting huge critical acclaim going next to his ‘Letter From Iwo Jima’.

Recent Years: In the late noughties he seemed to do a couple of films that went under my radar ‘The Death and Life of Bobby Z’ and ‘The Lazarus Project’. In 2009 the fans got what they wanted Walker and Diesel returning together in ‘Fast & Furious’, following that up with the crime caper ‘Takers’ before ‘Fast & Furious 5’. The franchise took off to heights no one imagined it could and sequels were ordered. ‘Vehicle 19’ was the biggest flop of his career but it was followed up by his most critically acclaimed performance in ‘Hours’. This was followed by his biggest box office success in ‘Fast & Furious 6’.

We have seen through his career he always went out to make different films and this showed with ‘Hustlers’ and American remake of ‘District 13’ ‘Brick Mansions’. With his career reaching the highest point his life was cut tragically short by a car accident, we will get a final send off when ‘Fast & Furious 7’ comes out in 2015.brick mansions

Nolan – Hours

My Favourite Role: Nolan – Hours. Stunning film about a man trying to keep his new born baby alive on life support while Hurricane Katrina bombards the city, alone in the hospital he can’t sleep as he need to keep recharging the life support ever hour.

My Least Favourite Role: Chris Johnston – Timeline. I struggled to enjoy this film all together everything seemed all over the place.

Top 5 Paul Walker Roles

Paul Walker was one of Hollywood favourite stars, one of the genuine good guys in the business. He was getting some of the best reviews of his career before his untimely death late last year. Starting today and going through the weekend I am going to be looking at some of his films and remembering the legacy he left in films. Paul has 41 credits to his name and will always be remembered for Fast & Furious character Brian O’Connor, but some of the smaller films he did really gave his best performances. Today I have put my list together against a friend’s Aled list. which one do you think it the best?

My List

5. Lance Harbor – Varsity Blues (1999)5

Lance is the start quarterback in the high school football team, but when injury ends his season he has the watch as the second string quarterback has to carry the hopes of the team and the community.

4. John Rahway – Takers (2010)4

John is part of an elite team of thieves who go for one more job which puts all their lives at risks when a reckless cop starts tracking them down.

3. Joey Gazelle –Running Scared (2006)3

Joey is a low ranking thug who is trusted to dispose of a gun used to kill corrupt cops but when the gun ends up outside his hands things start getting out of hand.

2. Nolan Hayes – Hours (2013)2

When Nolan’s wife dies given birth to their child, Nolan faces off against a hurricane which has lead to the hospital being evacuated and him and his child stuck alone while he has to keep a generator going he also has to deal with the need of food and unwanted guests. This is easily the performance of his career, as he is the sole character pushed to his limits going through every type of emotion.

1. Brian O’Conner – Fast and Furious Franchise1

Brian starts off as an undercover cop, but his love for cars makes him part of the family, with their jobs getting bigger as the franchise continued this will always be his most notable role and we hope they gave him a proper send off in the seventh film out April 2015.

 

Support This Project – Ruby

This is something different for the site, we have looked at all sorts of films that are complete, films on the way out. We have never looked at the people trying to make the films from scratch.

I have been made aware of this short film called ‘Ruby’ that is looking for funding and it is all being shot in my own home town. I do like the sound of this idea and I would like to encourage my readers to support the project.

Here is a quick description about the film:

Robert, an Estate Agent is driving home from work. He is going through a painful divorce and is struggling to cope, but things are about to get a lot worse as he encounters a young girl at the roadside who is looking to hitch a lift.
