(CNN)We don’t want to spoil “Crazy Rich Asians” for you, but the male lead, Henry Golding, is pretty hot.
The rom-com made big bucks — with an estimated $25.2 million at the domestic box office this weekend (as well as $34 million over its five-day opening) — and history, as the first major studio film since “The Joy Luck Club” 25 years ago to feature a predominately Asian cast.
“You can have Asians being leading men that are sex symbols,” Golding said. “You can have leading women powering through.”
Representation matters, and “Crazy Rich Asians” is being hailed for shining a light on that fact.
It also doesn’t hurt that it has a beautiful cast of Asian men and women.
“I was a little concerned that ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ would just be about making Asian men into sex symbols BUT it’s mostly about how badass Asian-American women are and I am down with that,” one person tweeted. “The men are also hot.”
And in case you didn’t know, there are other Asian and Asian-American actors out there who could also easily take up the heartthrob/leading man mantle.
Here are a few:
Png plays hunky Michael Teo in “Crazy Rich Asians.”
He’s got a steamy scene that has some moviegoers declaring his abs a scene stealer.
“Though I made myself available to come back, CBS and I weren’t able to agree to terms on a new contract, so I made the difficult choice not to continue,” Kim wrote in a note on Facebook in which he thanked the show’s producers and network.
The son of a British mother and a father of Chinese descent from Singapore, Tan was one of the bright light’s in the Netflix series “Iron Fist.”
Since then, he has moved on to roles in “Into the Badlands” and “Deadpool 2.”
He talked to CNN last year about Hollywood’s perception that Asians could only play “ninjas, monks, nerds, the third, fourth, fifth best friend who is a nerd, killers, doctors and for women, the sexy Asian woman who’s dating a white guy.”
“It’s an exciting time in a lot of ways because things are opening up,” Tan said. “There was a time when things weren’t as open for [Asian actors], so it’s exciting for me to see actors being booked and called in for roles.”
“It’s kind of a strange situation when you are walking a red carpet and people are out marching the streets because of so much strife in the air,” he said of the hoopla surrounding awards season, which was happening at the same time as the debate over the ban.
The “Riverdale” star is one of “Crazy Rich Asians'” biggest fans.
Butler — who was born in Singapore to father of British-Dutch ancestry and a Chinese-Malaysian mother and raised in the US — posted on his official Instagram account about the film, which he said “made me feel bada**, funny, and sophisticated while staying true to Asian culture.”
