Paul Walker Returns to the Big Screen
February 17, 2006

"Fast and Furious" Paul Walker is "Running Scared" in his gritty new high-octane film! The 32-year-old heartthrob is taking over the big screen with two movies: "Running Scared" and "Eight Below." While one film has Paul in the freezing cold, the other has him outrunning the heat!

In "Running Scared," Walker plays a small-time criminal who, in order to save his family, must recover a gun used in a mob hit.

"I learned a lot about myself making this movie," Walker revealed. "Like the higher the risks, the more I get off on it. I don't like playing life safe."

And don't expect this hottie to play it safe in his other new film, "Eight Below." The film centers on a dangerous scientific expedition in the bitter Antarctic.

"There isn't a whole lot I won't do," Walker admitted.

Walker's big screen breakthrough came with the "Fast and Furious" franchise. Now he says there's not much that would have him "Running Scared" from a serious relationship! And only "Extra" found out what Paul's looking for in a leading lady.

"She's got to be hot," he said. "You know, it's always like personality, and this and that. But first and foremost, she's got to be good looking."

But Paul's dream girl also needs the smarts to match the looks. "I like girls who are a lot smarter than I am," he revealed. "They've always got something new to tell you; there's something more to learn."

With two movies hitting theaters this month, there's a whole lot more of Paul for all the ladies to check out!
