Paul Walker's brother Cody lands his first movie role alongside Nicolas Cage.

Paul Walker's youngest brother Cody is boarding his first significant feature film role after lending a hand on Fast & Furious 7.

The 27-year-old helped Universal Pictures out in the recent Furious instalment, after the death of Paul in December 2013.

According to Deadline, Cody is starting his own acting career with a major supporting role in USS Indianapolis, alongside Nicolas Cage.

Cage plays Captain Charles McVay in the Mario Van Peebles-directed feature, who was commander of a boat that sank in 1945, resulting in massive loss of life.

Based on a true story, McVay's boat was hit by a torpedo that was on a secret mission, leaving 1,196 men waiting for rescue for four days. Only 317 survived after sharks began eating those who managed to get off-board.

Cody is set to play one of the soldiers fighting for survival.
