Paul Walker has died.

Shocking news....


Paul Walker -- best known for his role in "The Fast and the Furious" movies -- died Saturday afternoon after a single-car accident and explosion in Southern California ... TMZ has learned.

The accident happened in Santa Clarita -- north of Los Angeles -- and according to multiple sources connected to Paul ... the actor was in a Porsche when the driver somehow lost control and slammed into a post or a tree ... and then the car burst into flames.

We're told Paul and another person in the car were killed. Law enforcement is still on the scene, and we're told the L.A. County Coroner's Office is on the way.

Re: TMZ reporting that Paul Walker (Fast & Furious movies) died in car accient at age

This shit is fucked up.

Wait. What does that do to Fast Seven?

EDIT: I found this- http://en.mediamass.net/people/paul-...deathhoax.html

News of actor Paul Walker’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the November 2013 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports. Thankfully, the actor best known for his roles in The Fast and the Furious or Varsity Blues is alive and well.

UPDATE 01/12/2013 : This story seems to be false. (read more)

Paul Walker death hoax spreads on Facebook

Rumors of the actor’s alleged demise gained traction on Friday after a ‘R.I.P. Paul Walker’ Facebook page attracted nearly one million of ‘likes’. Those who read the ‘About’ page were given a believable account of the American actor’s passing:

“At about 11 a.m. ET on Friday (November 29, 2013), our beloved actor Paul Walker passed away. Paul Walker was born on September 12, 1973 in Glendale. He will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page.”
Hundreds of fans immediately started writing their messages of condolence on the Facebook page, expressing their sadness that the talented 40-year-old actor was dead. And as usual, Twittersphere was frenzied over the death hoax.

Where as some trusting fans believed the post, others were immediately skeptical of the report, perhaps learning their lesson from the huge amount of fake death reports emerging about celebrities over recent months. Some pointed out that the news had not been carried on any major American network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of an actor of Paul Walker's stature would be major news across networks.

A recent poll conducted for the Celebrity Post shows that a large majority (68%) of respondents think those Paul Walker death rumors are not funny anymore.

Paul Walker Death Hoax Dismissed Since Actor Is ‘Alive And Well’

On Saturday (November 30) the actor's reps officially confirmed that Paul Walker is not dead. “He joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. He's still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet,” they said.

Some fans have expressed anger at the fake report saying it was reckless, distressing and hurtful to fans of the much loved actor. Others say this shows his extreme popularity across the globe.
the article has some fucked up dates though.

I love the thread title update. So has this been officially debunked?

I take it you're not familiar with the dating standards of the rest of the world.

They'll use a double who doesn't really look like him, shoot only from behind and dub over his voice. Like John Candy in Wagon's East.

The fact that he's alive means that shooting goes on as it normally would have.
