Do yourself a favor and watch Kim’s Convenience on Netflix. The Canadian television show was a hit play before becoming a series. And Simu shines as the “hyeong” of the Kim clan. Simu is not only a solid actor, and is ripped to shreds (a must for CRA2), he’s also gunning for the role of Carlton.
Into the Badlands fans know him as Gaius Chau. He’s also Shatterstar in Deadpool 2, and Lu Xin in the upcoming Wu Assassins on Netflix. Is this Hapa hottie too busy for the Crazy Rich Asians sequel? We certainly hope not.
His portrayal as the Black Ranger in the Power Rangers reboot may have shot him to fame. But his upcoming turn in the DCEU’s Aquaman will certainly cement him as a movie star. After Atlantis, he should definitely make the jump to Singapore.
Dubbed “the world’s first Asian supermodel,” Godfrey Gao has spent his time modeling and starring in The Mortal Instruments franchise as Magnus Bane. It only makes sense that this man, who’s a star in both Asia and the US, should make his way into the Crazy Rich Asians franchise.
There needs to be someone who’s cheekbones can face off with Michelle Yeoh’s! And it is of the utmost importance that the men of Crazy Rich Asians can rock a suit. Leonardo Nam checks both those boxes. He’s been chilling in Westworld, but maybe it’s time to have him visit a crazy, rich, Asian world.
Daniel Henney (along with Lewis Tan above) is repping for the half-Asians on this list! He may have just gotten a bump up to the main cast of Criminal Minds, but that doesn’t mean he can’t take the time to make us all swoon in the CRA sequel!
Vincent reminded us all that “fit hot guys have problems too” in the third season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. If he hasn’t had enough crazy in his life, maybe he can make an appearance in Crazy Rich Asians part deux? (Also, he sings. Karaoke, anyone?)
David Lim has been sitting pretty in TV land, with starring roles in Quantico and SWAT. This man deserves a film role STAT. Calling Jon M. Chu and Kevin Kwan!
