Paul Walker 2 fast 2 furious entertainment news

Of all Paul Walker's career accomplishments, there's one very curious to award nuts like us: Back in 2003, Walker and his zesty lime car won a Teen Choice Award for Best Movie Chemistry in "2 Fast 2 Furious." Together they beat Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck in "Daredevil," Anna Paquin and Shawn Ashmore in "X2," Jim Carrey and Morgan Freeman in "Bruce Almighty," Eric Christian Olsen and Derek Richardson in "Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd" and Sanaa Lathan and Taye Diggs in "Brown Sugar."

One year earlier, Walker starred in the first "Fast and Furious" film, and picked up the Best On-Screen Team popcorn bucket with co-star Vin Diesel at the MTV Movie Awards. They beat the teams from "Ocean's Eleven," "Rush Hour 2," "Shrek" and "Zoolander."

Walker died in a single car accident on Saturday at age 40. The handsome leading man mixed up mainstream movies -- he was filming "Fast & Furious 7" -- with edgier fare such as the upcoming "Brick Mansions" in which he plays an undercover cop determined to take down a crime boss. 

The California native was a child model and guested on a slew of TV shows before landing a plum part in the 1998 hit "Pleasantville" opposite Reese Witherspoon and Tobey Maguire. Two years later -- after leading roles in "She's All That" and "Varsity Blues" -- he won the Exciting New Face prize from the Young Hollywood Awards.
