Paul Walker

The tragic death of actor Paul Walker not only shocked his legion of fans, but the “Fast & Furious” star’s family has quietly moved to carefully copyright the actor’s image and name for all sorts of future merchandising.

While it is true — as reported by my Hollywood gossip pal Janet Charlton — that the Walker family believes Paul’s early death will turn him into a tragic icon, similar to James Dean — it’s also about raising money for a good cause.

I’ve learned that the bulk of the money raised by any sales of Paul Walker merchandise will largely go to his disaster relief foundation.

In that way, he will truly leave an important legacy for future generations of people stricken by disaster — created both by nature and mankind.
