Paul Walker Documentary Includes Previously Unseen Footage

Late last year, Meadow Walker settled her lawsuit with Porsche over the death of her father, the late, great Paul Walker.

Now, his family and loved ones are honoring him with a documentary about him, titled I Am Paul Walker.

In the trailer for it below, you can see previously unreleased footage of him. Take a look:

After a glimpse of footage at a young teenage Paul getting nervous in front of a camera, his brother Cody Walker speaks.

"He was a big kid," Cody says of his dearly departed brother. "He was a big kid."

Director Wayne Kramer also speaks about Paul.

"That guy made the best of every single minute," Wayne says.

Wayne continues, saying: "He lived five lifetimes."

Paul was also survived by his sister, who speaks about how she remembers him

"He liked to go fast," Ashe Walker says. "As soon as I was old enough to hold on tight, I was on the back of his bigwheel with him going for the ride of my life."

Oakley Lehman, a childhood friend and a stunt performer, speaks of Paul's complexity and apparent contradictions.

"The gun-toting hippie," Oakley says of his late friend, praising Paul as the "balance of opposites."

"You know?" Oakley continues. "A lover and a fighter."

Another childhood friend, Andy Muxlow, refers to Paul's perpetual free spirit.

"He's definitely not a puppet," Andy says.

"You know?" Andy asks. "He's definitely not somebody that's gonna just be told to do something and then do it."

Director Rob Cohen says that, as much as fans grew to love Paul Walker through the camera, that barely scratched the surface on the man he knew.

"Cinema didn't capture it all," Rob laments. "Couldn't capture it all."

Rob summarizes Paul's priorities in life: "'My daughter, my surfing. That's the life. And that's what I care about.'"

Matt Luber, Paul's manager, speaks about how Paul was not obsessed with is status as a celebrity or even as an actor.

"Paul was always an actor who had one foot in and one foot out. He could just disappear," Matt says.

Caleb Walker, Paul's other brother, speaks of Paul's occassional impulses and fantasies of solitary anonymity.

"He'd always say, like, 'I want to be a park ranger.' You know?" Caleb says. "Make 28 grand a year, live in the wilderness. That's really what he wanted to do."

Rhett Walker, Paul's uncle, gushes about the impact that his late nephew had on countless individuals.

"I can actually say he did a lot of things that made a lot of difference in a lot of people's lives," Rhett says.

Not everyone can say the same.

Fast and furious cast

Tyrese Gibson is an actor and was one of Paul's costars in the Fast and Furious franchise.

"He was a giver," Tyrese says. "If you loved him the way we did, you would say 'Well, why him and not us?'"

That is a normal way to grieve a lost friend.

I Am Paul Walker premieres on August 11 at 9pm on the Paramount Network.

Walker Hayes and Wife Mourn Loss of Seventh Child

Country music artist Walker Hayes and his wife, Laney, shared a heartbreaking update on Thursday night concering the latter’s pregnancy.

In a statement shared on Instagram and Twitter, the musician wrote that he and Laney have lost their seventh child, explaining that she died just days prior to her due date.

“It is with great sadness that Laney and I share with you the news that our sweet Oakleigh Klover Hayes was born this morning at the hospital and now is safely in heaven,” Hayes posted, adding:

“Thank you for honoring our privacy as we grieve.”

The couple are parents to six other children, three sons and three daughters, ranging in age from two through 11.

Concluded this statement:

“Walker has canceled his immediate upcoming appearances to be home with Beville and their children.

“We ask that everyone respectfully give them their privacy in this difficult time.”

The medical reason behind this awful tragedy is unknown at this time, but also unimportant in the grand scheme of things.

Walker Hayes states

Hayes, who is probably best known for his hit “You Broke Up With Me,” revealed in November that he and Laney were expecting their seventh child.

He told Taste of Country at the time that his other kids were “losing their minds” with excitement and that his oldest, Leila “cried because she was so happy about having a new brother or sister.”

In April, a very pregnant Lacey walked alongside her husband at the American Country Music Awards.

Then, on Mother’s Day, Walker shared a precious and cute tribute to his wife on social media, writing simply:

I mean we only have 6 kids…it’s not like she really does that much… Happy Mother’s Day Laney.

Hayes had been scheduled to perform on Wednesday night at the CMT Awards, with fans wondering why he failed to do so after the show aired.

This was prior to them learning the valid and terrible reason behind his absence, of course.

Walker and Laney, meanwhile, were high school sweethearts.

They’ve been together since junior year, which is legitimately incredible and awe-inspiring and which makes this news all the more upsetting somehow.

“Our line of communication has been a wide open highway since the moment I met her,” the singer gushed to Rare Country in February, adding this winter:

“We can talk for hours all the time. I feel like we tell each other everything, and that’s who you want to be with for the rest of you life.

We send our condolences to Walker, Laney and their family members during this difficult time.
