"THR" on Paul Walker: "The people that we have spoken with have really not said this is a dangerous type of person"

On the heels of the tragic death of Paul Walker on Saturday, on Monday evening "Piers Morgan Live" asked Matt Belloni of "The Hollywood Reporter" to share some insight on the California crash which claimed the actor's life.

As part of the live interview, host Piers Morgan played a video clip from 2001, in which the "Fast & Furious" star shared his perspective on high speed, automobile entertainment:

"Kids have been drag racing since, I don't know, basically as long as there's been cars, kids have been drag racing" said Walker in the taped snippet. "I think you see the down side to doing it. Nothing would be worse than a 120 mile an hour blowout, on a surface street, you know, with pedestrians lining up and down. You know, it's just common sense, it's just not worth the risk factor."

Joining the program from Los Angeles, the magazine's executive editor indicated that Walker lived by the values he projected in that 13-year-old sound bite:

"Everybody who has ever worked with Paul Walker, the people that we've spoken with, have really said this is an upstanding guy, he was the nicest guy on set," said Belloni. "He did have a taste for this car racing and kind of the real life 'Fast & Furious' kind of life-style. But it wasn't the kind - people didn't describe him as reckless, they didn't describe him as one of, sort of the adventure type that was not considerate of others around him. Obviously, we don't know exactly what happened on Saturday. But the people that we have spoken with have really not said this is a dangerous type of person."

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Belloni, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.

    As usual Don Lemon and CNN are behind the curve, news-wise: he just did a segment where the conclusion was Roger Rodas, the man driving the car that he and Paul Walker died in, was out of his depth driving a Porsche Carerra GT. This is a reckless and unjustified slur. TMZ which has been way out in front with this story, is reporting that employees of Always Evolving, found evidence of a fluid leak, probably from the steering system. These stains on the road coincided with the skid marks that lead to the crash. For any advanced driver, this report starts to make sense of events: drivers of this caliber are unlikely to come unstuck if the challenge is just the car and the road, especially on a corner they know well. Wise heads are looking for some unknown factor. Don Lemon may own a Porsche, but you can bet the farm that he can't drive it. Add to his ill-informed report, CNN's other nonsense about Drag Racing, and it becomes ever more obvious that CNN is 'the least reliable' name in News.

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Kudos
