Tragedy struck Hollywood over the weekend as longtime "Fast & Furious" star Paul Walker was killed in a car accident. He was partially finished shooting his role in "Fast and Furious 7," which was slated for released next summer but is now on hold. Universal will decide the fate of the film soon, but in the meantime, Hollywood and movie fans alike mourn the loss of the actor, who was just 40 years old.
As for the rest of this week's list...
