    I've never seen any of those movies, but I knew of him from other things. Very sad. Images of the car...just awful. :(

    He was my crush throughout the 90's and early 2000's. Great actor and seemed like an all around nice person.

    God bless him and his family.

    OMG! I didn't know this, but then I've been working feverishly on a term paper the last few days. I've seen his Fast & Furious movies, but nothing else that he was in. Wow, only 40.

    Very saddened to hear this...such a young age. Prayers with his family.

    I guess we can find some peace in knowing his little girl wasn't with him.

    If I have to read on FB one more person's "clever" comments about the circumstances of his unfortunate death... :|

    I think the Facebook statuses have been a bit much. At first I saw a bunch of people saying it was a hoax but then the real stories came out. I never heard of the guy before that.

    This is another reason why I'm taking a break from Facebook.

    As more and more information comes out, the sadder the story gets.

    A lot of people thought that it was a hoax because last year a story came out reporting the exact same thing about the same person.

    So sad! I have seen several of the Fast and Furious movies (my husband just loves them!), and always thought he was a great actor. Very, very sad. :(

    I found the cell phone videos that people were taking of the burning wreckage to be horribly distasteful and awful.

    And the people who share them on FB-shame.

    A lot of people knew him for all the charity organizations he was a part of and created, not just from the movies. He was actually on during shark week and discussed some work he does with trying to protect sharks

    I haven't seen cell vidoes, just one picture that showed the car after the fire was out. But I agree that people who post pics and vidoes of the buring car should be ashamed.
