Freddie Prinze Jr. was one of the biggest heartthrobs of the 90s and early 2000s. While he hasn't been in the spotlight as much as he used to be, everyone still loves him.
The actor is well known for his iconic teen-hits like She's All That and I Know What You Did Last Summer, as well as his countless Teen Beat covers. He was actually taking a moment to discuss his former costar, Paul Walker, who passed away in a tragic accident in 2013.
Walker was in the movie She's All That with Prinze Jr., and their bond seemed to start right away. Walker played Prinze Jr.'s best friend in the movie who likes to cause some trouble. While their character's relationship was strained, the actors in real life got along great. The actor shared a story about his first meeting with Walker, and how he made sure that he would get the job.
Prinze Jr. was at Walker's first audition, but he didn't have the authority to offer him the job. He did however do his best to make it clear that he was the best choice.
He said, "When Paul came into audition, I didn’t have cast approval, but I had what they called consultation. I knew Paul was the right guy, and when he finished the audition, I asked if I could excuse myself to go to the bathroom. I ran outside where his car was parked. I said, ‘Hey man, you’re gonna get this job.’"
