Constance Wu was confirmed recently as the star of the upcoming film adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s Crazy Rich Asians playing Rachel, who falls in love with Nick, and then finds out Nick is a member of Singapore’s richest craziest family. Yesterday, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Michelle Yeoh has been cast as Nick’s formidable mother, Eleanor Young…

OH MY GODDDD I NEED A GIF OF SOMEONE RUNNING AROUND THEIR ROOM SMASHING INTO WALLS!!!

Michelle Yoeh is, obviously, awesome as f-ck. But another reason this is brilliant is because Michelle Yeoh is actually Malaysian and has spent a lot of time in Singapore. Many years ago, she married a Hong Kong billionaire (Dickson Poon) and her career only went major after she divorced him. My point is… she’s no stranger to the Crazy Rich Asians life. Also… imagine Michelle Yeoh as your possible mother-in-law?!???

The decisions made so far with this film – from director to screenwriter to the actors – have been very encouraging. I need this movie to happen NOW. But, at the same time, I also appreciate that they’re not rushing it. By not rushing it, they haven’t called me yet to play Kitty Pong. How many times can I say that I am the PERFECT Kitty Pong? Is it because I’m too desperate?

Kitty Pong is NOTHING if not desperate!

Here is Michelle at a Louis Vuitton event in Hong Kong last week.
