Love Hard has shot up the Netflix charts since its release earlier this month, and we're absolutely obsessed with their latest Christmas film.

It tells the story of an LA writer named Natalie (played by Nina Dobrev), who has forged a successful career writing about her disastrous dating life.

When she connects with Josh on a dating app, she flies to his home in Lake Plaid, New York, to surprise him for Christmas - but discovers that he catfished her using his school friend's photos.

The man in the photos is actually a guy named Tag (played by Darren Barnet), who had grown apart from Josh after becoming popular.

Josh (played by Jimmy O. Yang) promises to set Natalie up with the real-life Tag if she pretends to be his girlfriend for the holidays, and chaos - predictably - ensues.

Here's your need-to-know on the actor who plays Tag.
