The Fast Franchise brought a ton of attention to cars, and every manufacture wants the rub of being featured in a great action scene. That means that cars have to audition to get in the film.

Vin Diesel recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly podcast to plug the upcoming Fast movie. He revealed a very interesting piece of information about the behind the scenes casting process. Cars have to audition for a spot in the movie, a rarity for Hollywood. Then again the Fast Franchise is a very different property.

“Part of the process of Fast is we’ve always auditioned our cars. The cars have really been such a significant part and representation of our characters, that there is a process of casting, right? Of casting the exact vehicle for the state of mind that the character is in, or the journey that the character is going through.”

It stands to reason why there would be a tremendous amount of pressure for a car company to see their automobile featured with one of the Fast heroes driving it. That can probably result in some very competitive negotiation sessions as well.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
