Ross Butler Could've Been in 'Crazy Rich Asians', But Here's Why He Wasn't

Let’s get real here – Crazy Rich Asians is an insanely amazing film that we need more of asap – but there was something missing and his name is Ross Butler.

Turns out though, the 13 Reasons Why actor actually did audition for the flick, but here’s why he wasn’t cast in it: he was too young!

“I wish [I was in it]! I actually had read for the lead role,” Ross shared with Vulture in an interview. “But I think I was just too young. I mean, I was still playing a teenager so I can’t be a professor at a college.”

He adds, “I don’t think I was anywhere close [to being cast] because I was still playing a 16-year-old! But I figured I’d read for it anyway and see what happens.”

And although he’s not in the movie, Ross knows the importance of the film.

“It’s gonna show people that there is a culture that wants to see this type of story.”

Crazy Rich Asians is out in theaters now.
