I just read that.

My first thought was "fuck". My second was "I wonder what they're going to do about the next two hunger games movies?"

That's where I saw him from...  I didn't remember until you said that.

I expect they'll find a replacement, although whatever filming they've done already will almost certainly have to be changed.  They might have to do a Gladiator when Oliver Reed died and they had to use body doubles and then digitally change the face.  Though I expect today that would be much easier than back in 2000.

So why is Fast & Furious 7 cancelled when Paul Walker shuffled off the mortal coil then?

Actually, apparently PSH had finished most of his filming with only one or two key sequences from 'part 2' of the third movie to complete. They say it won't impact filming. Most likely they'll find a way to insert him where needed. Unused footage, body doubles, CG, and just plain ol' creative editing could achieve this.

I honestly was surprised she died.  Because I didn't know she was alive.

Even worse, today is my mother's birthday. She was not happy about that death...

im split on this guy...

im not a fan, lets get that out there right up front.

but, he was a stick to his guns sorta guy. thats admirable...

if your a fan of the old testament, he was not really very far off that rocker. and since he never actually stoned anyone (i know of) he was somewhat liberal by that standard.

then, i think... if death is the great equalizer then meh whats the point.. its all equal now...

of course he was a horrid asshat... but im an asshat... thats not really a stone i should throw....

in the end his family and the community he devoted his life to disavowed him (about a year ago), he had plenty of time for that to sink in.

im not an afterlifer, so no eternal torment or such from me... just worm food.

so in summation..

ya, fuck em... but meh deads dead.

I recall some speculation about disavowing him because they (the entire church) didn't want to pay his funeral expenses or something like that.
