Cody will star alongside Nicholas Cage in the World War II drama USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage, about a ship that was torpedoed in the South Pacific in 1945 after delivering the parts for the first atomic bombs. Because their mission was classified, the boat was not reported missing until four days after the attack.

Cage plays Capt. Charles Butler McVay, who was eventually court-martialed and then not exonerated until more than half a century later. Walker plays one of the crewmen, and reportedly faces exposure, dehydration, saltwater poisoning, and shark attack while waiting to be rescued. Of the 1,196 crewmen aboard, only 317 survive the ordeal.

Check out some of the pictures the actor and others posted from the set. Does he look just like his handsome brother or what?
