Notable role (as a child): Professor Bennett in Monster in the Closet (1986) 

If Paul Walker had to deal with a monster in his closet today, he would just drive a car through it. Through the closet, the monster, a small house—whatever. But before he became so fast and so furious, he was a child  in the Fast & Furious series, but before he was driving cars around the world, Paul Walker was a teen dealing with the monster of closeted homosexuality. That's right, Monster in the Closet is a metaphorical horror story. Makes you wonder what those cars are all about.
