Bringing a solemn moment to the fun-filled 2014 MTV Movie Awards, the Conan O’Brien-hosted event is set to feature a heart-felt tribute to Paul Walker.

Showcasing a handful of clips from throughout his acting career, the late actor's "Fast and Furious" co-star Jordana Brewster will also appear on stage to introduce the event, and speak on his behalf.

MTV president Stephen Friedman stated that, "Paul Walker was a role model for the MTV audience since the very beginning of his too-short career. Our audience grew up with him, from 'Varsity Blues' to the 'Furious' franchise. He was a movie star but one that they could relate to."

Friedman also added, "Paul's humanity and kindness clearly showed through every role. We're honored to be able to spend a moment in this year's Movie Awards to celebrate him."

Walker and long-time friend, Vin Diesel are also nominated for best on-screen duo, which will play as part of the tribute, regardless of the results.
