Whenever an actor dies in the middle of filming, there’s always the awkward question of what to do with their character. When Heath Ledger died during the making of The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, they replaced him with Jude Law, Colin Farrell and Johnny Depp, and they donated their salaries to Ledger’s daughter. When Cory Monteith died on Glee, they wrote a tribute episode and played his character’s death as straight as possible.

The idea proposed is to put none other than Justin Bieber in the movie. Whether the idea is to actually replace Walker with Bieber playing the same character, or if some other idea is being worked out (Bieber could be the younger, twerpier brother, for example) isn’t entirely clear. One thing is clear though, Bieber has some important supporters, with Ludacris having already voiced his approval of the idea of putting the 19-year-old Canadian in the film. We can’t help but wonder who it was that thought bubble gum pop music and car chases go well together, but we’ll still keep you informed if this develops.

Holy crap, that would be like Scooby-Doo dying and then getting replaced by Scrappy-Doo. You literally couldn’t come up with a worse idea than that, unless you actually threw a CGI Scrappy-Doo into the movie …

Vin Diesel: We’re about to go fast … furiously.
Vin Diesel: Holy crap, that’s like being f*cked in the ear.
Scrappy-Doo: Let me at ’em! I’ll clobber ’em! I’ll-
Vin Diesel: Just remember Vin, it’s not Justin Bieber. It’s not Justin Bieber. It’s not Justin Bieber …
