The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones opens in theaters today, and you’ve already seen Lily Collins busily promoting the movie in her many crop tops. But no YA book turned movie is complete without hot guys. While the main leads are great to look at, relatively unknown Taiwanese actor-slash-model Godfrey Gao makes his English-speaking debut as the High Warlock of Brooklyn, Magnus Bane. Standing at six feet four inches, the fan-favorite character likes to forgo pants, drop snarky comments, and throw parties for his cat, Chairman Meow. In real life, Gao was the first Asian face for Louis Vuitton. With that head of tousled hair, chiseled features, and perfectly groomed stubble, we definitely can see why. Enjoy.
