Netflix gives its own spin to Crazy Rich Asians movie

A little later than usual, but seems like Netflix is finally giving Crazy Rich Asians its own spin. It has created a personality chart in the form of a Venn diagram on Facebook of celebrities who are crazy, rich and Asian.

Celebrities put on the chart include Madelaine Petsch who plays Cheryl Blossom in Riverdale, Ross Butler who played Zach Dempsey in 13 Reasons Why and Aziz Ansari who plays Dev Shah in Master of None Netflix series, among others.  However, grabbing the limelight at the centre of the three hoops is Dylan Wang who plays Dao Ming Si in Netflix series, Meteor Garden as the celebrity that fits crazy, rich and Asian.

Marketing has reached out to Netflix for more details.

You just need to make the right decisions. We’ll make it easy for you.”
