LOS ANGELES - FEB 27: Caleb Walker, Cody Walker at the Noble Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on February 27, 2015 in Beverly Hills, CA
We recently reported that Paul Walker's brother was interested in becoming an actor and in less than two weeks, Cody Walker has landed a new agent.
Paul Walker's younger brothers Caleb and Cody famously did stand-in work to help Universal complete Furious 7 and with Universal planning at least three more Fast and Furious movies, it makes sense that they might want to do some acting work.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that the youngest brother Cody, who's 26, has now signed with Paradigm.
Cody Walker has signed with Paradigm, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned. THR reported last week that he was taking agency meetings and working with his brother Paul Walker’s manager, Matt Luber, who also has officially signed him to Luber Roklin. Paul also got his start at Paradigm, where he remained for several years.
Cody, a licensed paramedic, has also served as brand manager for Paul’s nonprofit Reach Out WorldWide, a volunteer network that deploys first responders to disaster relief situations, since January 2014. [THR>
To be honest, Paul Walker is more famous now than he has ever been, and acting-wise, filling his shoes will not take the acting talents of Leonardo DiCaprio or Denzel Washington. But, the 26-year-old actor does have the opportunity of a lifetime especially when casting directors say acting talent only makes up 7% of their decision to cast an actor. We will have to see if the world is going to love Cody Walker just as much as they loved Paul Walker.
