Paul Walker, Vin Diesel
Vin Diesel paid tribute to Paul Walker Monday at the site where the actor passed away, which has been turned into a makeshift memorial by fans.
"If he could see for himself that all of you have showed up to show my brother love at this hard time, and the family gets to see all of you show the love that you've shown Paul, it's going to stay with me forever," Diesel told the crowd in a video posted byKTLA-TV.

Peter Sarsgaard, The Killing
The Season 3 premiere of The Killing introduced viewers to Ray Seward, an inmate who is 30 days from being executed for brutally murdering his wife. But did he actually do it?
The Killing: Does Season 3 show signs of life?
Like almost every element of the show, Seward (an incredibly creepy Peter Sarsgaard) remains a mystery. The enigma surrounding the character is initially based on a series of contradictions. After bashing a prison chaplain's face in on the premiere, Seward proudly takes credit for his wife's murder and recounts in graphic detail the strength it took to kill her. But throughout the episode, Detective Linden (Mireille Enos) finds proof that suggests that Seward's wife was possibly murdered by a serial killer who's racked up more than a dozen other victims while Seward was in prison. Similarly, Seward talks about his son to manipulate a prison guard, but flatly denies having a child when being questioned by Linden.
Is it all just a series of mind games? Yes and no. "In that atmosphere, if you are not built like Vin Diesel, you've got to find a way to make somebody who looks like Vin Diesel fear you," Sarsgaard tells TVGuide.com...
