This Weekend we broke the sad news that actor Paul Walker passed away on Saturday after being involved in a fatal car accident. The California native was a passenger in a friend’s car, driving back from an event for the star’s charity Reach Out World Wide, when they lost control which led to a horrific crash.
Walker was just forty years old, and adds to the growing list of celebrities who have been taken too soon, joining people such as River Phoenix, Brittany Murphy and Heath Ledger. He came to the world of film after a stint as a model, something that he has gone back to in recent years as a spokes-person for male fragrance brand Davidoff. It was supporting roles in teen films She’S All That and Varsity Blues that saw him start to get noticed. From here he made a little known film called The Fast And The Furious. »

Amazon's week long deals for 2013 Black Friday and Cyber Monday continue today, Wednesday, November 27, with a new schedule of DVDs and Blu-rays going on sale today and they are starting early. The deals throughout the day begin just after midnight today and there are a few titles worthy of your attention.
