Preview, “I Am Paul Walker” documentary tells the tale of the James Dean of the “Fast/Furious” Generation

Here’s what we know about Paul Walker — he liked to call people “Bro.” A handsome blue eyed blond, he starred in several films of note before the “franchise” that would make him, than found himself eclipsed in that franchise by a multi-cultural ensemble that made the films all about “family.”

He played second banana to Vin Diesel with good grace, made the occasional indie film, raced cars like his character in “The Fast and the Furious,” and died way too young.

He practiced random acts of kindness. This story went viral.

I interviewed him a couple of times, once even before “Furious” took over his life. When he said “Bro,” you felt like he meant it. A couple of his final films were among his best, and didn’t have Vin Diesel or assorted Chrysler products in them to upstage him.

“I am Paul Walker” is coming soon to cable’s Paramount Network.
