He'll appear with Nicolas Cage in 'USS Indianapolis.'

Paul Walker's youngest brother is kicking off his acting career with a role in USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage with Nicolas Cage.

In April, THR revealed that Walker was interested in pursuing an acting career and was meeting with potential agents. Soon after, he signed with Paradigm.

After a lengthy production hiatus, due to the death of star Paul Walker, Furious 7 continued filming with both Caleb and Cody Walker joining the cast to stand in for their brother's scenes. Elaborate CGI was used by Peter Jackson's WETA effects house to complete the process. The Universal film earned a staggering $1.52 billion dollars.

USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage will be directed by Mario Van Peebles and also stars Tom Sizemore and Thomas Jane.  The Patriot Pictures project is produced by Michael Mendelsohn and Richard Rionda Del Castro. The story centers on the crew of the USS Indianapolis, who were stranded in the Philippine Sea for five days after delivering the atomic weapons that would eventually end WWII.
