Cody, a licensed paramedic, first stepped in front of the camera to help complete his brother's scenes in Furious 7 after Paul was killed in a car crash in 2013, while shooting the latest sequel in the action movie franchise.

Earlier this year (15), Cody signed a deal with the Paradigm agency, and his representatives have helped him land his first major supporting role in the film USS Indianapolis, according to Deadline.

The movie features Cage as the real naval captain who struggled to keep his crewmen alive after the ship, which was on a secret mission to deliver parts for the first atomic bomb, was torpedoed by the Japanese Navy in 1945.

Walker also joins a cast which includes Tom Sizemore and Thomas Jane, with Mario Van Peebles directing.
