Paul Walker died last weekend in a tragic car accident, and we're still reeling from the devastating news. Walker has been a favorite of ours since he appeared alongside Reese Witherspoon in 1998's Pleasantville. A solid actor with all-American looks and a big heart, Walker will always hold a special place in our hearts. He could melt you with his smile and could even make you fall for him when he was playing the bad guy. In the wake of his heartbreaking passing, let's remember what makes it impossible to forget Walker.
I saw Pleasantville in theaters, and even in black and white, Walker was irresistible. Skip Martin had me from the first time he flashed that million-watt smile at Jennifer/Mary Sue (Witherspoon) from his convertible, and I've never forgotten about the moment she decides that hanging out in the '50s with Skip might not be so bad after all.
Varsity Blues (1999)
James Van Der Beek may have been billed as the star of Varsity Blues, but it's Walker's endearing performance that I'll remember. In the sports film, he shined as injured quarterback Lance Harbor, a guy who has great talent on the field and an even greater admiration for his brothers and teammates.
