Two of his first notable performances were in the series “Highway to Heaven”, and the comedy series “Throb” in 1987, in which he played the lead character Jeremy Beatty.

He then chose to focus on movies, and gained recognition after appearing in the 1998 comedy “Meet the Deedles”, which led to him appearing in movies “Varsity Blues”, “She’s All That” and “Pleasentville”. After starring in “The Fast and the Furious” and so becoming famous all around the world, Paul went on to play Hank Hansen in the 2006 war movie “Flags of Our Fathers”, directed by Clint Eastwood, and he also portrayed Ben Garvey, the lead character in the independent drama thriller movie “The Lazarus Project”, released on 31 October 2008.

No alcohol nor drugs were found in the two’s bodies and the police have stated that speed and the age of the Porsche’s tires were to blame for the accident. Paul’s body was cremated, while his ashes are buried at Forest Lawn Memorial Park.
