Paul Walker's Brothers: Reasons We Never Hear About Them

Paul Walker's brothers, Cody and Caleb Walker, are hardly ever in the news. Since Paul died in a tragic and fatal car crash in 2013, we have seen a little more of the two but nothing really out of the ordinary. So why don't we hear from Cody and Caleb? We're exploring the possible reasons, which include everything from marriage, to racing and dogs.

They're married men

Both of Paul Walker's brothers are happily married men. Caleb got hitched just before Paul's death in 2013 at Dove Canyon Country Club. He wed Stephanie Branch in Orange County and Paul stood beside him as his best man.

Cody wasn't as fortunate as Caleb; Paul passed before his wedding, when he tied the knot with Felicia Knox in an outdoor ceremony in 2015. Speaking to the Daily Mail before his nuptials, he admitted it was "going to be really tough" to get married without Paul there by his side. "You know, Felicia and I have been together for seven years now—and so that was her brother too [in a sense] and Felicia was his sister ...," he said. "One thing that I take from this is that we all got to enjoy Caleb's wedding just a month before Paul passed."

They're helping Meadow cope

When Paul passed away, he left behind a daughter, Meadow, with Rebecca Soteros. Although she's now legally an adult, Cody and Caleb have helped her deal with the devastating loss of her father.

According to Cody, Paul really adored his only child. "She was the most important thing in the world to him. So we're very protective of her," he told Entertainment Tonight. Thanks to the great role models in her life, Cody says Meadow is "doing a lot better."

They're busy exploring

It's no surprise that Cali boys Cody and Caleb are ocean lovers. In fact, they're experienced fishermen who are one with the water. While showing off his fancy new wetsuit, Caleb had one particularly good catch in a massive sheepshead, which he proudly displayed on Instagram. Cody's fishing skills are also impressive. Case in point: he's not afraid to clean his own mahi mahi in Hawaii.

Cody is a self-proclaimed "adventurer" and travels to see new bodies of water any chance he gets. He's explored Lake Arrowhead by boat, hiked through Puerto Rican waterfalls and gone to Hawaii with his wife. It's hard to keep tabs on these handsome bros.

Cody's been busy racing

Paul and Cody had at least one thing in common: racing. One scroll through Cody's Instagram and you'll notice his affinity for cars and a need for speed. In early 2016, he got to see Formula Drift racing in person, even getting up close and personal with professional driver Jhonnattan Castro. He also took time to attend the Bob Bondurant School of HPD in Chandler, Arizona. There he was able to get in one of the fast cars—complete with some special headgear. Cody's also attended the Auto Club 400.

A lot of this must be tough on Cody, considering the tragic way in which his brother died; however, we also can't help but think that Paul would be very proud of his little brother.

Cody's a busy dog dad

Cody and his wife may not have children yet, but he's definitely a doting dog dad. Cody's Instagram is full of photos of his fur children (we'll warn you: they're adorable) and the dogs celebrate their owners as parents. On Mother's Day, Cody and his tan pup, Zuma, celebrated the special occasion by getting all dolled up. Zum even proudly smiled for the camera.

When Cody isn't working, he's out with Zuma and her BFFs—even taking them on outings. He doesn't seem to go too far without a dog in tow and, if his love for animals is any indication, he's going to be a great dad one day.

They're busy with charity work

Both of Paul's brothers are continuing the work Paul began before his death. They honor the late actor's birthday with the annual Game4Paul Fundraiser, which benefits his nonprofit, Reach Out WorldWide. Paul created the ROWW foundation after he visited Haiti in 2010 and, according to the website, they're a "an agile group of first-responders and other professionals in the medical and construction related fields who augment local expertise when natural disasters strike in order to accelerate relief efforts."

Cody has happily taken over running the organization with his wife. He told Entertainment Tonight, "It's what he left behind for us, and for that reason we're going to support it and keep it going for as long as we possibly can. It's a piece of him ... Reach Out WorldWide does great work. It's a small organization that does great work and I'm gonna make sure that keeps going on."

They weren't involved in Paul's celebrity life

Even though they were brothers, Cody and Caleb led very different lives than Paul. The actor was often busy on set—sometimes even during the holidays. "We had to share Paul with a lot of people, in a weird way. He was gone a lot, he was filming, so we missed him," Caleb told Entertainment Tonight. "Sometimes at the holidays he wasn't always there, you know? He tried."

After his untimely death, Cody and Caleb were able to fill in some of the gaps of Paul's absence when they cameoed in Furious 7. (Paul died while filming was still in production.) Vin Diesel, whom Caleb described as being the "Godfather" of the Furious 7 set, was just one of the cast members who shared stories with them about their late brother. "Paul kept a lot of things about work kind of quiet with his family and friends and so we were able to learn some things through [his costars]," Caleb remembered.

Caleb hasn't done a lot of acting

Cody and Caleb filled in as body doubles for their brother in Furious 7 after Paul's tragic death, but that wasn't Caleb's first role. According to Earn the Necklace, he made his acting debut in 2012 in The Ultimate Sacrifice, a short film. It doesn't seem like acting was Caleb's thing, though. He only appeared in F7 to honor his brother and to help him and Caleb grieve their loss. This may be a big reason Caleb is rarely ever in the spotlight.

Cody is still a rising star

Although Caleb doesn't seem to want to work full-time as an actor, the acting bug definitely bit Paul Walker's brother after Furious 7. In fact, he announced on KIIS FM (via the Daily Mail) in 2015 that he was going to "pursue a career in acting."

"Growing up with [Paul] as an older brother I had an idea of how everything worked but being part of this really was eye opening as far as the people that he had been working with on this franchise for the last 15 years," he told the radio station.

After that interview, Deadline reported that Cody had landed his first film role. According to IMDB, he landed his first official role playing West in the 2016 film USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage. Deadline also reports that there are rumors of Cody working with Walker's former agent.
