A two-minute tribute video to actor Paul Walker has been created by the producers of the Fast & Furious film franchise.

Walker starred in five of the six films in the series and had been working on the seventh when the car he was riding in with a friend over the weekend lost control and hit a tree, bursting into flames and killing both men instantly.

Filmmakers behind the series posted a video montage of film clips featuring Walker to YouTube on Wednesday. The tribute is set to Diddy - Dirty Money's "Coming Home" and features several shots of Walker's infectious smile. Things slow down to...

'Hawaii Five-0' Recap: 'Ike Maka' (2.09)

November 15th, 2011 2:08am EST
Hawaii Five-O
An admission: I love the Fast & Furious films. So give me Hawaii Five-0 taking after the Fast & Furious films, and I'm a happy girl.

The show opens big, with Honolulu Police cruisers trying to catch a speedy flame-red set of wheels and finding a whole host of beautiful cars inside locked shipping containers. One of them has a dead body sans fingerprints in the trunk. This allows us to use Hawaii's car culture as the episode's backdrop. (It also means Lauren German gets primped as if she's trying to channel Michelle Rodriguez - if Rodriguez's Letty had driven a bait car.) There are ...

Why We're Gearing Up For 'Fast Five'

April 23rd, 2011 2:00pm EDT
Fast Five
In less than a week, the fifth Fast and the Furious flick, simply titled Fast Five, will roll into theaters. I know I'll be seeing it on opening day. Though I rarely catch a movie in the theater anymore, much less on its first day, there's something about this franchise that has me addicted.

I can't believe that The Fast and the Furious was ten years ago. How time flies when you're having fun. That first film was undoubtedly fun, tapping into the subculture of street racing. It was a new world for a lot of people - myself included, considering that the sum total of my automotive kno...

Dwayne Johnson's latest movie role as a tutu wearing male Tinkerbell in "Tooth Fairy" is another embarrassment in the long line of embarrassments for Hollywood muscle guys.

'Fast & Furious': A Love Story

April 17th, 2009 9:31am EDT
Fast & Furious
When I first heard that yet another installment of the "Fast & Furious" was coming out, I stifled a yawn and made a mental note to catch it on TBS 6 months later. But after watching the trailer and seeing a good amount of car chases, explosions, and Vin Diesel looking delicious as ever in that wife beater of his…I was convinced to see it in theaters. What I saw wasn't your run-of-the-mill action flick, but dare I say it, something deeper? The storyline is well crafted, with moments of laughable dialogue, but that's to be expected. I never saw a love and revenge plot coming out of a test...

Vin Diesel: Action Star, Father, Proud Geek & Heartthrob

April 3rd, 2009 9:16am EDT
Vin Diesel
The first thing anyone should know about Vin Diesel, AKA Mark Sinclaire Vincent, is that he is a huge Dungeons and Dragons nerd. The actor admitted with charming self-deprecation that he has been a fan of the game for over two decades. It is hard to imagine Riddick pretending to be a dwarf mage, but somewhat sweet and unique at the same time.

Born in New York City 41 years ago, Vin is biracial and was raised by his stepfather and mother with his three siblings. His mixed racial origins came back in a big way early in his career when Vin wrote, directed, and starred in a film called "M...

Must See (& Must Skip) New Dramas This Fall

August 27th, 2008 8:40am EDT
My Own Worst Enemy
Christian Slater has only one facial expression. His eyebrows are permanently arched in a slightly questioning yet slightly sinister gaze; he has a five o'clock shadow that no pancake makeup ever seems to hide; and his eyes are dark and brooding, appearing beady and almost dead without the proper glint from three-point lighting.

Skip "My Own Worst Enemy"

Yet NBC's My Own Worst Enemy (Monday nights at 9 p.m. starting Oct. 13) have him playing two very distinct men: Henry, the slightly dippy family man living in pre-fab suburbia, and Edward, a Jason Bourne-esque operative for a se...

She wrote: "At 15 miles an hour, never killed a pot head. We get stopped driving 15 miles an hour down a 35-40 mph road. I cry, this sucks ass. I hire some lawyer from Hawaii, lose my 28 acres of land and my home in Jersey paying him off, just so I can get the same treatment I would have gotten from a public defender."
