Looks like we've got a handsome breakout star on our hands! Henry Golding, an English-Malaysian television host and personality currently based in Singapore, has been cast to play male lead Nick Young in the upcoming film adaptation of Kevin Kwan's bestselling novel Crazy Rich Asians.
Henry, who grew up in London and relocated to Asia in 2008, is currently the presenter of BBC's The Travel Show. As he's never appeared in a film feature before, Crazy Rich Asians will be his movie debut. Too cool!
He certainly looks like Asia's wealthiest, most eligible bachelor, we'll give him that!
Fresh Off The The Boat's Constance Wu is set to play Nick's American-born Chinese girlfriend Rachel Chu, who unknowingly walks into a nest of uber-moneyed vipers when she accompanies him back to Singapore for his best friend's wedding. Michelle Yeoh is slated to play Nick's catty mother Eleanor Young.
What do you think of the cast so far? We can't wait to see the rest of the lineup!
