11 of Paul Walker's overlooked movie roles

Paul Walker was best known for his role as Brian O'Conner in five out of the six "Fast & Furious" movies, but the fallen actor, who was killed in a fiery crash Saturday in Valencia, Calif., had several other prominent or lead roles in a career that spanned nearly three decades.

The Glendale, Calif.-born actor made his film debut in the 1986 horror spoof "Monster in the Closet" at the age of 13. He made an appearance on several TV shows -- such as "Highway to Heaven," "Charles in Charge," "Who's the Boss?" and "The Young and the Restless" -- before he hit the age of 20.

Walker, who was 40 at the time of his death, got his first leading role in the 1998 Disney comedy "Meet the Deedles." He stayed busy around the turn of the millennium, appearing in 10 movies between 1998 and 2003.

The fallen actor slowed down his workload in recent years; since the popular "Fast & Furious" franchise rebooted in 2009, Walker only took roles in five other films outside of that series -- including two that have yet to hit theaters.

Walker had begun filming a seventh "Fast & Furious" movie, but his death likely means his character will have a limited appearance in the film.
