Harry Shum Jr., who some will know as Mike Chang of Glee fame or Magnus Bane on Freeform’s Shadowhunters, has joined Jon M. Chu’s adaptation of Crazy Rich Asians.
The film, starring Constance Wu of Fresh Off the Boat fame, tells the story of an American-born Chinese professor who joins her boyfriend, played by Henry Golding, for his best friend’s wedding in his hometown of Singapore. She quickly discovers that he is Asia’s most eligible bachelor, and soon has a host of single ladies trying to take her down.
The film’s cast includes Gemma Chan (Humans/Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and much anticipated Star Trek: Discovery), and relative newcomer Awkwafina ( Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising).
Harry Shum Jr. will take on the role of Astrid’s (Chan)’s ex-boyfriend in Crazy Rich Asians, which is currently in production in Singapore and Malaysia. He is very enthusiastic about his part in the project, which is evident in his tweet about the new endeavor.
