Will Pan play Linsanity?

After news broke that Spike Lee will direct a film about NBA star Jeremy Lin’s (林書豪) “Linsanity” story, netizens are urging singer-actor Will Pan (潘瑋柏) to fight for the role as he once pursued the same dream as the basketball star in the US.

The American-born Taiwanese, Will, started playing basketball at 13 and studied at California State Polytechnic University after obtaining a basketball scholarship.

But his NBA dream drifted away as he topped off at the height of 1.78m.

Some netizens ridiculed the idea, saying Will is not tall enough and the film’s post-production team would have to spend a lot of energy making him look tall.

Aside from Will, Korean-American actor John Cho has also been highlighted by netizens to star as the Knicks sensation.

A fake movie poster has been making its rounds on the internet.
