Umm, this is NOT what we were expecting from TLC.
Check out the official statement (below)!

It makes sense that Paul Walker would need a lot of people to double for him. He was four men in one, in our opinion.
We reported earlier how filming would resume at the end of this month on Fast & Furious 7, and we guessed that maybe a double or CGI would be used for his scenes.
Well, it looks like it's a mixture of both!
“They have hired four actors with bodies very similar to Paul’s physique and they will be used for movement and as a base. Paul’s face and voice will be used on top using CGI.”
Apparently, producers of the film and Universal felt like this was their first option and that audiences would approve. We happen to agree.
It is so sad that we can't have the actual Paul himself to act in this seventh installation, but we're happy that Universal is going above and beyond to make sure that his character's inclusion in the film is done justice.
We miss you Paul.
