The MTV Movie Awards will pay tribute to the late Paul Walker this Sunday.
The network announced their plans today.
“Paul Walker was a role model for the MTV audience since the very beginning of his too-short career,” MTV’s president, Stephen Friedman, says.
“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. Paul’s humanity and kindess clearly showed through every role.”

He added, “We’re honored to be able to spend a moment in this year’s Movie Awards to celebrate him.”
The Fast & Furious star passed away in a car crash due to speed last November. Since his death, many of his friends and co-stars, including Vin Diesel and Tyrese Gibson, have honored him.
No further details have been released about MTV’s tribute, but the awards’ executive producer, Garrett English, says, “Well, I think we are just really happy and honored that they were willing to allow us to celebrate him in some way on the show. And his family and friends were willing to have that happen.”
