Last week, it was reported that Fast & Furious 7 had brought on Paul Walker’s brothers Caleb and Cody to help finish the production. The specifics of how they’ll help the production haven’t been revealed, but presumably they’ll be working as body doubles. There may be other ways the production tries to fill in Walker’s role whether it’s through CGI and/or re-writes, but at the very least, hiring Walker’s brothers is a sign of respect. It also helps that they look a lot like him. Vin Diesel posted a set photo on his Facebook page, and while we don’t know which one is Caleb and which is Cody, the brother on the right bears such a strong resemblance that they might even be able to pull off close-ups.

It’s odd to think that a Fast & Furious movie will be so heavily scrutinized right down to how it’s trying to manage Paul Walker’s unfinished scenes. We go to these movies for dumb fun, but there will be a pall over the finished film as it tries to find the balance between big, brash action and deep respect for its deceased star. Fast & Furious 7 opens April 10, 2015.

      The guy on the left looks more like Edward Norton than Paul Walker, but the guy on the right looks just like his brother. If wasn’t told he was Paul Walker’s brother, I would have just assumed that Paul had just gained a bit of weight in the face.
