Paul Walker stars in "Fast Five" as Brian O'Connor, reprising the role for the fourth time, having played it in "Fast & Furious" in 2009, the original movie "The Fast and the Furious," and in director John Singleton's sequel "2 Fast 2 Furious." In the original film, his character was a cop who is stripped of his badge and must infiltrate the Miami street racing circuit in an effort to redeem himself.

Having captured the attention of audiences and industry execs alike with his undeniable on-screen presence, Paul Walker has managed a balance of successful box-office films, dramatic roles and documentaries to elevate his leap to leading-man status on both the small and big screens. Walker most recently co-starred alongside Matt Dillon and Hayden Christensen in Screen Gems' crime-action movie "Takers," and in "Fast & Furious," the fourth installment of the blockbuster series.

In November 2009, Walker was seen on National Geographic Channel's "Expedition Great White," a documentary devoted to exploring the dangers of one of natures most challenging and dangerous creatures. Walker teamed up with marine biologists to journey off the coasts of Baja, California, in order to track how these SUV-sized predators live.

Walker displayed his versatility by transforming on-screen into a soldier, under the direction of Clint Eastwood; an Arctic research scientist in a Disney family adventure; and a New Jersey mobster in a gritty independent feature.

In 2006, Clint Eastwood cast Walker in his World War II drama "Flags of Our Fathers," for Paramount Pictures. That same year, he starred in Disney's box-office hit "Eight Below," portraying Jerry Shepard, a lead research scientist who was forced to abandon his team of sled dogs. Directed by Frank Marshall, the film follows the heroic survival of the dogs through six months in the harsh Antarctic winter, and Shepard's quest to organize a rescue mission to bring them home. In "Running Scared," a thriller written and directed by Wayne Kramer ("The Cooler"), Walker starred with Vera Farmiga as a desperate father trying to protect his son after a tangle up with the mob in a cop shooting.

Walker also starred opposite Jessica Alba in the action-thriller "Into the Blue," for director John Stockwell. He starred alongside Susan Sarandon, Penélope Cruz, Robin Williams and Alan Arkin in Chazz Palminteri's 2004 directorial debut, "Noel," about a group of New Yorkers who come together on Christmas Eve.

In 2003, Walker co-starred in director Richard Donner's adaptation of Michael Crichton's novel "Timeline" and starred in John Singleton's "2 Fast 2 Furious," the sequel to "The Fast and the Furious," which grossed more than $127 million at the box office. Walker also co-starred with Steve Zahn and Leelee Sobieski in 20th Century Fox's critically praised thriller "Joy Ride," which was directed by John Dahl.

Walker's additional credits include the box-office hit "The Skulls," directed by Rob Cohen; the football dramedy "Varsity Blues"; the critically acclaimed film "Pleasantville," from writer/director Gary Ross; Miramax's "She's All That"; "Brokedown Palace"; and "The Death and Life of Bobby Z."
