Jeremy Lin was in Taiwan on Saturday for the debut of his first TV commercial, a low-budget production (hey, gotta start somewhere) in which he delivers this line:
“No one expected me to be a starter, take game winning shots, or even play in this league. Well, I’m not here to live up to anyone’s expectations, I’m here to live up to mine.”
As China Post reports:
“It’s much easier to shoot a 3-pointer,” the 24-year-old point guard said, adding that he was really not that good at acting and that he “had to do everything 50 times.”
“I had to do it so many times, I don’t know, maybe he (the director) doesn’t like my smile or something,” Lin said of the shot of him smiling at a child at the end of the commercial.
Smiling at a child… like the ending of Twelve Monkeys?
