LOS ANGELES, June 3 (UPI) -- The Fast & Furious films have found a new star in Cody Walker.

The 25-year-old actor and stuntman initially became involved with the franchise when he and his brother Caleb filled in for the late Paul Walker in Fast & Furious 7. Cody and Caleb finished "small gaps left in production" for their brother after his death in November 2013.

The Daily Mail now reports that Cody will be given a new, recurring role in future Fast & Furious films. Paul Walker's character Brian O'Conner will be retired, and Cody's character will join the crew.

"Of course, Cody isn't a replacement for Paul in any way," a source told the website. "But the producers were really grateful that he stepped in to help them finish this last film... It would be a tribute to Paul that Cody carries on the Walker name in the Fast & Furious movies."

Fast & Furious 7 is scheduled for release April 10, 2015. Paul Walker said in an interview with Collider before his death that an eighth movie is "a guarantee" at Original Film studios.
