Rupert Friend (you probably know him as Peter Quinn from Homeland or possibly as Keira Knightley's ex-boyfriend) is "in talks" to play a role originally cast for Paul Walker, a source confirms to E! News.
The dreamy 32-year-old Brit is potentially replacing the late Fast and the Furious star in the Aleksander Bach-directed film Agent 47. Per Variety, who was first to report the casting news, the film is a follow up to the 2007 Hitman with Timothy Olyphant.
Walker's commitment to Agent 47 was "a major part of the film getting a greenlight," said a source. When the actor died tragically Nov. 30, 2013, "it looked as if this film would not be able to move forward, since the production start date was set for February  and there was no major star involved."
