[movieperson id="203430"]Paul Walker[/movieperson] is excited for the release of his upcoming action flick, "Takers," even though two of the movies actors, [artist id="1225081"]T.I.[/artist] and [artist id="1961441"]Chris Brown[/artist], are facing real-life action of their own. T.I. is set to serve a yearlong prison sentence, and Brown faces arraignment on charges of assault and criminal threats after his alleged altercation with [artist id="1940303"]Rihanna[/artist] in February.
Walker, who is currently promoting "Fast & Furious" (out Friday), doesn't think his 19-year-old co-star's legal troubles will have any effect on the film. "I hope everything gets worked out, 'cause I really like him," he told MTV News about Brown. "I feel for him, 'cause I know it's hard, but he's going to be all right."
Walker got to work closely with Brown while filming "Takers" last year. "He's just a kid," Walker said. "He's just cool. He's fun. ... He's a 19-year-old kid, just high on life. Just having a good time. Always dancing and singing, never stops, always got a smile on his face. Really good energy, good kid to be around."
In "Takers," which also stars Michael Ealy, Hayden Christensen and Idris Elba, Walker plays one of the bad guys the audience will root for. "I play this guy John Rodway," he explained. "It's a big heist movie. It's all about the robbery, and these guys coming up, and they're like the bad-guy crew that you can't help but pull for, 'cause they're all good guys. They're really tight. It's 'Heat' meets 'Point Break.' It's got that feel to it."
With the Brown chatter out of the way and the plot synopsis done, Walker was ready to share his one criticism of the film. It seems at the time of the interview Walker didn't realize that the film, which had the original title of "Bone Deep," had been changed to "Takers," a detail we are sure will make him quite happy. "I'll tell you one thing: The title's gotta change. It's gotta," he joked about the original title. "We can talk about this all we want, but it's gonna be under a completely different title when it comes out. I'm sorry, that is not sticking."
