Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Obituaries

Paul WalkerPaul Walker was traveling at over 100 miles per hour when the car he was in crashed.

The Fast and the Furious star died alongside his friend, Roger Rodas - who was driving - when their Porsche crashed and burst into flames in Santa Clarita, California on November 30.

A new report from the Los Angeles County Coroner released yesterday notes Roger was driving at an "unsafe speed" on the road - which has a designated limit of 45 miles per hour - and lost control of the car "for unknown reasons." After the car crashed into a tree and a lamp post "the vehicle was almost split in half ... the majority of the vehicle was also charred" by the fire which followed.

The report also states neither Roger, 38, nor Paul, 40, had alcohol, cocaine, marijuana or other impairing drugs in their systems. It has previously been found Paul died from a combination of traumatic and thermal injuries. The report also said the actor had been in a "pugilistic" stance at the time of the crash, meaning he had braced for impact.

Vin Diesel Says Facebook Owes Him Billions of Dollars

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Features

Vin DieselVin Diesel believes Facebook should pay him for having millions of followers.

The Fast and Furious actor - who has over 41 million likes on his page on the social media site - joked he should receive the money from the company because he has so many fans and he believes the key to his popularity is he takes the time to talk to his followers.

"So, when I had started my page, the only person that had a million fans was Barack Obama. Because it was first-quarter 2009, and he'd just got elected as President, because of social media. So, when I started talking to the fans, I became the No. 1 page in the world. Over Coca-Cola, over huge companies. And it was only because I said, 'Hi, guys, I love you.'"

The 45-year-old star insists he updates his Facebook page himself and he admits the social network giant was shocked by how many followers he has gained. "Facebook used to ask me to come up to their office to explain what the f**k I was doing, and why I had so many fans. What was unique was: I never let anyone do a post, I never let anyone post for me in the last four years. My audience knows me so well on the page that if my producing partner's in the room when I post, they'll know somebody was around me. That's kind of cool, that's how sophisticated they are. Facebook really owes me billions of dollars. But whatever," he told Entertainment Weekly.
