Los Angeles, April 13: Late actor Paul Walker will be remembered in a tribute featuring his movie clips at the upcoming 2014 MTV Movie Awards.

The award ceremony will take place on Sunday, reports The Los Angeles Times.

"The Fast and Furious" star was killed in a car crash in November 2013.

Walker's "The Fast and Furious" actor co-star Jordana Brewster will take to the stage and talk about working with him in a speech at the event.

Paul Walker to receive tribute at 2014 MTV Movie Awards

11 April 2014 4:05 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Paul Walker will receive a tribute at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday (April 13).

The late Fast & Furious actor will be remembered at the annual ceremony, following his death at the age of 40 in November.

MTV president Stephen Friedman said: "Paul Walker was a role model for the MTV audience since the very beginning of his too-short career.

"Our audience grew up with him, from Varsity Blues to the Furious franchise. He was a movie star, but one they could relate to. Paul's humanity and kindness clearly showed through every role."

He added: "We're honoured to be able to spend a moment in this year's Movie Awards to celebrate him."

MTV Movie Awards executive producer Garrett English told The AP: "Well, I think we are just really happy and honoured that they were willing to allow us to celebrate him in some way on the show. And his family and »

Sunday's MTV Movie Awards Will Honor Paul Walker

11 April 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

MTV will take a break from handing out golden buckets of popcorn this Sunday to honor the life of late actor Paul Walker during the channel's annual Movie Awards.

Walker, who died in a single-car crash last November at the age of 40, was a fixture at the ceremony over the past decade thanks to this starring role in the "Fast and Furious" franchise, and his contributions to that series and other films will be remembered by the network, MTV said in a statement.

"Paul Walker was a role model for the MTV audience since the very beginning of his too-short career," said MTV president Stephen Friedman. "Our audience grew up with him, from 'Varsity Blues' to the 'Furious' franchise. He was a movie star but one that they could relate to. ...

MTV Movie Awards to pause the silliness for Paul Walker

10 April 2014 12:52 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Amid the presentations for Best Shirtless Performance and Conan O'Brien's comic mugging, moments of earnestness are likely to be few at this week's MTV Movie Awards -- which is as it has always been. But the levity will be suspended for at least a couple of minutes, as organizers have announced that the show will feature a tribute to the late "Fast & Furious" star Paul Walker, nearly five months after the 40-year-old actor died in a car crash. Walker is also posthumously nominated (with Vin Diesel, of course) this year for Best Onscreen Duo in "Furious 6" -- though the La Times confirms that the presentation of that award will stand separate from the tribute, which will take the form of a clip reel, preceded by an onstage dedication from his "Furious" co-star (and onscreen wife) Jordana Brewster. Walker, of course, is far from the only big-name star to »

'Trailblazer' Channing Tatum to be honored at 2014 MTV Movie Awards

3 April 2014 12:51 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Even if it is just a ploy to shoehorn another pandering award to a popular young star, I kind of dig the MTV's Trailblazer Award as a general concept. It's kind of the opposite of a lifetime achievement honor, reserved for actors or actresses of a young age whose work paves the way for others in the industry. And the first two annual recipients were women, which is nice (Emma Stone in 2012 and Emma Watson in 2013). This year the honor is going to a dude for the first time: Channing Tatum. Tatume is "the quintessential leading man for the MTV audience," MTV President Stephen Friedman said. "He proves that an action hero can have both a quick wit and a large heart. Whether he's baring his soul in 'The Vow,' his chest in 'Magic Mike,' or his humor in '21 Jump Street,' Channing proves that by committing everything, »

Stephen Friedman Makes a Cameo in ‘Game of Thrones’ Season Opener

19 March 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Former head of Goldman Sachs Stephen Friedman seems to have traded the world of finance for the realm of warriors and dragons – if only for a few brief seconds.

Friedman, who also worked in the White House under President George W. Bush, has a brief cameo “Game of Thrones” during the season four premiere, according to an article in NY Times’ Dealbook.

Clad in peasant robes, Friedman appears for a few seconds at the beginning of the episode and walks down a dirt path carrying a basket with his real-life wife, Barbara, by his side.

Though the small screen isn’t Friedman’s usual domain, his appearance might not come as surprise to “Game of Thrones” aficionados who know that Friedman’s son, David Benioff, is one of the show’s creators.

Author William D. Cohen, who had interviewed Friedman for a book on Goldman Sachs, helped spread the news by tweeting about his discovery. »
