May 24, 2013 | 1:03pm EDT

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."
