First Look at Paul Walker’s Brothers Caleb and Cody on the Set of FAST & FURIOUS 7

Last week, we 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 I’m not sure 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.  Check out the set photo after the jump.  Fast & Furious 7 opens April 10, 2015.
