Vin Diesel turns to fans for casting advice

VIN DIESEL turns to his 42 million "Facebook angels" to help him cast his movies.

The XXX star admits he asks fans for advice every time he lands a new role and passes on their thoughts to casting directors and producers.

The actor says, "They were the first ones to suggest Dwayne Johnson and I working together (in Fast Five) and without giving (new film) Fast 6 away, that cameo at the end was strictly from the Facebook page.

"They all said, 'We had a dream of seeing you guys work together.'"

And he always takes his fans' recommendations seriously: "I have to listen to them... It's such a rare moment in Hollywood, where we're able to actually hear feedback from the audience and I think it makes for a better movie."
