Paul Walker had his plate quite full when he passed away in a car crash alongside dear childhood friend Roger Rodas.

Not only was he finishing up “The Fast And The Furious 7,” he was also set to star in “The Best Of Me,” an adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks’ novel, as well as in “Agent 47.”

Since his death, James Marsden has been offered his role in the Sparks’ adaptation. You may recognize Marsden as Scott Summers/Cyclops from the “X-Men” movies or from “27 Dresses.”

“The Best Of Me” tells the story of two old high school lovers who reunite after being apart for 20 years.

They see each other at a funeral of a mutual friend and rekindle the romance.

“Homeland” actor Rupert Friend is also set to take Walker’s place in the “Agent 47″ film.
