Early Live

Born in Taipei, Taiwan, on the 15 October 1974, Lin was the second child in a family of five children. He graduated from Zhong Xiao Primary School and Huai Sheng Secondary School. At the age of 16, while he was studying Drama and Photography in Hwa Gang, Lin was discovered during a performance in school. During this time, he was the star of the campus. At first, he declined his first manager's offer to enter the entertainment industry but later took up the offer. In 1992, at the tender age of 17, he became a superstar overnight at the release of his debut album, "Not Every Love Song has Fond Memories" (不是每個戀曲都有美好回憶). His sweeping fame across Asia and even the United States gained him the nickname "Little Whirlwind". He was also known as one of the "Little Four Heavenly Kings" in Taiwan. Lin became the youngest singer ever to hold a concert at the Hong Kong Coliseum, being only 18 years old and the first singer to hold a concert within the Suntec City Fountain of Wealth, Singapore, in 1999. He went on to release 13 albums, including special editions and compilations, and has since filmed many movies and series, as well as endorsed many products. Throughout his singing career, he also received many awards for his hit songs and albums.

Lin enjoyed great popularity until 1994, when he had to serve compulsory military service. Despite knowing it would affect his career tremendously, he did not seek special treatment from the government. In October that year, he entered the military like any other ordinary male of his age. Despite his fame, Lin did not have an easy life in the military. In a 2005 talk show, Jimmy revealed that in addition to the arduous training, he was bullied by seniors, and was expected to perform better than other soldiers. Although he did not expect star treatment, Jimmy was shocked to be treated badly for being a celebrity. In spite of all these, Lin performed well as a soldier, and received awards for excellent performance. He served primarily in the entertainment section of the military. After 2 years in the military, he returned to acting and singing career in 1996.

Career

Lin as "Lu Xiao Feng" in The Master Swordsman (2000) Lin as "Dragon" in Boxing Hero (2003)Lin's career as an actor and singer was momentarily postponed by his compulsory military service and upon his return, he was overshadowed by many newcomers. Despite the difficulties he faced in re-entering showbiz, he worked hard and even set up his own company, Jimmy Creative, which produced his recent 5 albums under the music label "Forward". The most noteworthy album was "Scarecrow" (稻草人)(1999), which contained a song of the same title.

In 1997, Lin decided to realize his dream of car racing. In one of the races that year, he encountered a crash which nearly cost him his life. Seconds after limping out of the wreck, the car exploded. The only reminder of the accident now is a few metal plates in the foot that was crushed. Despite the accident, Lin did not give up on racing, and constantly strived to better himself. With regard to this, he often says, "When I race, I am not racing against others, but against myself." Today, Lin is one of the top 10 racers in Mainland China. In 2005, he signed a contract with Hong He, the top team in China, as a racer. He is currently training under top racing coach Ma Jun Kun. Lin hopes to become a Formula One racer someday, and become a full-time professional racer. On October 23rd, 2005, Lin hosted the first "Jimmy Cup", a racing event where mainly male celebrities race. The event's aim was to increase the awareness of traffic safety to the masses and to promote the love of car racing.

While being a racer, Lin has not neglected his showbiz career. Lin concentrated on filming after his last album "Going for a Walk" in 2000. The grandest production in recent years was "Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils" (天龙八部), where he took the role of the Dali crown-prince Duan Yu.

Despite having not released an album since 2000, Lin continues to sing theme songs for television series and films, and give regular live performances for various events including mini concerts, fund-raising events, festivals and even state events. He was one of the celebrity performers at the Third "Beijing 2008" Olympic Cultural Festival (2005), where the theme motto "One World, One Dream" was officially announced.

In addition to his entertainment and racing career, Lin set up a business on the internet with his brother, naming his own brand "JR" (Jimmy Racing). The online venture sells goods ranging from sunglasses to bikinis. It has since grown in scale from operating solely on auction sites to selling his goods on shopping sites.

Lin also contributed to the society by becoming an ambassador for many youth and government campaigns in Taiwan and other places. On October 17th, 2003, Jimmy was presented with the "International Outstanding Youth Award" by the mayor of San Francisco. He was the first Chinese in history to receive this award. The award was mainly to commend him for starting a series of fund-raisings for schools, for being an anti-drug ambassador, and for participation in public community events.

Here is the translation by ladycoco.

Can you believe it? Since Jimmy entered the entertainment industry he has not
yet starred in a modern series (except movies). He always did ancient or early
1900's series. In order to try something new, he turned down serveral Mainland
ancient series like Liao Zhai 2 and accepted San Lap's idol series "Fang Yang De
Xing Xing". If his price is RMB90,000 per episode, then he is losing over 10M.

Yesterday, "Fang Yang De Xing Xing"'s male and female leads, Jimmy Lin and
Korean actress Liu Hu Na got their first makeover. In the dressing room, the
director, makeup artist, and producer Chen Yu San surrounded Jimmy and argued
about how to "change" him into someone that the audience has never seen
before. Chen Yu San said, "Jimmy alreadys appears as sunny and cute. This
time, we want to show his sexiness and maturity."

"Fang Yang De Xing Xing" is heavy with Korean influence. Its female lead is a
young Korean. The director wants Jimmy's hairstyle to copy that of another
Korean actor. Jimmy has never starred in an idol series. He has bought a pile of
Korean series in order to study "how modern people fall in love".

Liu is a new actress with Korean Ei21 agency. She has starred in "Sixth Exit" in
Taiwan and was the female lead in Jay Chow's MV. Jimmy thinks that Liu looks
like Liu Yi Fei. Her look and feel are outstanding. Liu has stayed in Taiwan for a
while and understands a little Chinese. Together with body language they have
no problem communicating. Jimmy has been spending a lot of time in Mainland.
With his return to Taiwan, he is putting a lot of his energy and personal resources
into the series. He will play the son of a jewel merchant, who doesn't like to work
but only likes racing. After he gets married he becomes a ruthless businessman.
Jimmy is a racer himself. His racing team is ready to help in the big racing scenes
in the series. Jimmy boasts that whatever type of race car they need he can get
one.

Chen Yu San said she would ask Jimmy to unbotton his shirt to look sexy and
mature. Jimmy is willing to co-operate. He said he has no problem with how
many buttons. Everyone is worried that Jimmy has stayed in Mainland China for
too long and is out-of-touch with idol series. But Jimmy is confident. He
said "Modern series is easier than ancient series. There should be no problem."
He feels comfortable working with a Taiwanese procuction team. He said with
relief, "Finally I don't have to work in remote sites in China."

"Fang Yang De Xing Xing" will start filming at the end of November. Jimmy will go
to China for a rally race next Tuesday. Then he will come back for filming. Jimmy
said that he will stay in Taiwan for a while. His family is most happy because he
can go home every night.

Jimmy left messages on his blog a few days ago.

Jimmy said there would be filming outside location in Switzerland.

Liu He Na said Jimmy was her childhood's idol.

The director and his assistant are HK people. The female lead is Korean, and the rest is Taiwanese.

Jimmy might sing the theme song. All fans can listen next year.

Jimmy will have a race in Zhejiang for the last competition of this year.

Jimmy will have a new haircut for his new character.

Jimmy Racing Team won third place in the Rally race yesterday. However, he had to drop out of the race because of mechanical problems.

This is a brief translation of the news:
--------------------------
Yesterday, the transmission in Jimmy Lin's car had problems. He dropped out of the race before he entered the 6th track. His results are poor this year. He said his luck was bad and had accidents in 4 different races of the year. He is going to film a series called "Fang Yang De Xing Xing" about a story of a racer. It is like "Initial D". He will win first place in a race in the series. He hopes that the series will bring him better luck next year, at least match his 2005's national 8th rank.

I wouldn't say that modern dramas are easier to film than ancient... I think that, in some ways, they can be... and, if you do a shoddy job, it's more "forgiveable," but in other ways, I think it's harder... there is a certain element of exaggerated dramaticism and expression at times in ancient dramas that wouldn't translate well to an idol drama. It is interesting to think that he's never acted in a modern idol drama before... I never thought about it before... ^_^'

It's nice to see him be able to combine his two loves (maybe even three): racing + acting + (maybe) singing. :)

Anyway, did you notice the part where Jimmy said his new co-star is beautiful... and resembles Liu YiFei? :loool: Hahaha, still thinking of your young co-star, eh?? Jimmy-Liu YiFei all the way!! :yeah Hahaha...

Hi, thanks a lot for your messages.
I guess Jimmy means modern drama is easier in the way of costume and make-up.
Jimmy won't hang on the sling in modern drama. No need to go to the remote area.

Yes, I agree. It is very interesting to see him acts and races together in one series.

Yes, I noticed, Jimmy dotes LYF a lot.
Since he feels that Yoo Ha Na resembles LYF, Jimmy would be happy working with her clapclap

What a mob!

Ouch! Poor Jimmy! You can read the disappointment on his face. He can barely keep a smile on. He is only human but the show must go on. This is what one reporter said about him:

"Jimmy Lin: He has the most fans in every race. Even though he couldn't finish the race it's his duty to show up at the ending ceremony to entertain the crowd. No wonder he brought enough smile onstage, but after he got offstage his face turned iron green."

Reporters like to stick a mic and a camera in the face of an athelete the moment after he/she loses and ask the stupid question: "How does it feel after you lose?"

Jimmy Racing Team got 2006 Team Overall 3rd place. His team was formed in March of 2006 and beat out many other older teams. Congrats, Jimmy!

The article says it serves American (burger and hotdog? :eek: ) and Italian food. The specialty is French crepes. Sounds like more upscale than Planet Hollywood.

20 Appetizers
30 main dishes
25 light dishes
60 drinks

estimated spending per person: TW$300

Today's exchange rate is US$1 to TW$32.35

So it is about US$9.27 per person, which is not bad in the US. But I don't know how it compares to other restautrants in Taiwan.

American food is burger, hotdog, steak, pizza (actually Italian), fried chicken. Who wants American food when you can have crepes, YUM YUM!

Jimmy was photographed with a girl on 12/2/2006 at 11pm entering a Taipei nightclub. He walked faster when he saw the reporters. When asked who the girl was, he said with a smile, "She is just a friend. Don't think too much." Jimmy has been busy filming and racing out of the country lately. It is rare to see him with a girl at any Taipei nightclubs.

I have been super busy but I need a break. This translation is not very good and I don't have time to ask a friend to proofread. Some words I can't translate. Sorry guys. I did my best!

Whether onstage or on the racecourse, what Jimmy Lin hasn't changed are his
sparkling eyes. Looking at his super sportscars, Porshce and Ferrari, he said with
confidence and a smile, "I love Matchbox cars since I was a kid. In highschool
I read all the motorcycle and car magazines. I studied them better than school
books."

A lot of men dreamed about cars since boyhood but none is as lucky as Jimmy.
At 18, his agency gave him a BMW 325 IS 2 door sportscar as a birthday present.
At 19, he upgraded it to a BMW M3 for better performance. At 23, he drove a
Ferrari 348. Because of his passion for speed he has to keep upgrading them.
The final stage is to race cars.

He started racing in 1997. 2001 was his best year in racing. He won seven 1st
places, two 2nd places and 3rd places. Last year he ranked 8th among 100
racers in China Rally Race. His next goal is to rank among the top 5. Listening to
him talk about his racing record we are curious to know how it compares to
singing. Jimmy said, "I get accompishment from both singing and racing. But more
from racing because there is only one winner. Winning and losing is clear
in sports. Singing is an art. It is harder to judge."

When he has to face poor results after a race he will study them and work on
improvement. He is a person who will fulfill his dreams, step by step. He doesn't
like to talk but to show results.

He opened the door of the Porsche, stepped into the driver's seat and held the
steering wheel. He said what is great about racing is not just the speed but
standing in the winner's podium and spraying other people with champagne.
He watched the F1 race in Shanghai recently with the now retired Michael Shumacher.
He taught me some racing skills on how to round a turn. The hardest part is the
mindset of a racer.

Jimmy has 9 years of racing experience and shining results. A lot of stars in China
want to compete with him. He said with a smile that he won 1st place in the Star
Race last month. He completed 3 laps and led by half a lap. He said his skills are
from years of practise. What makes him even prouder is that his father, who once
tried hard to stop him from racing, is now giving his approval.

He formed his racing comsulting company in Zhuhai and his own Jimmy Rally Team
this year. A lot of companies are sponsoring. he also has a car dealership,
Road Star, in Taipei that sells and remodels super sportscars. Jimmy said that the
dealership is purely for interests because his car-lover friends always get together
to study cars. They remodel cars and even rebuild entire cars before reselling
them. He pointed at a Smart outside the shop and said that it is the only car in
the world made of charcoal fibre (???). Cool! He plans to open another shop in
Beijing, providing the same serives to car lovers.

Since becoming a singer in highschool to car racing then owning his own racing
team, he is following his interests and path. "A lot of people only dream but I will
take the first step. I won't stay put. Maybe that's why my dream is not too far
away." Looking at his super sportscars Jimmy talk about his ever-growing dreams
and how to spend his wonderful life.

Finally some news on Fang Yang De Xing Xing. The actress showed here is not Liu He Na. If someone else can translate her name I will add it in.

-------------------------
Last Saturday (Dec 19, 2006), the production tested filming in front of San Lap's building. The team closed the road and created traffic choas. Although there was romantic background music but outside of the camera there were waves of honking. Jimmy Lin's bright smile became embarassing.

Jimmy Lin and an actress tested a scene outside San Lap's building where they embraced. A lot of motorists slowed down to watch. Other motorists honked in fustration.

They filmed the actress crossing the road. The production team ignored the traffic singals and stopped the cars. Then Jimmy and the actress met in the middle of the road. Jimmy picked her up and turned her around. Maybe they couldn't stand the honking, both actors became very tight. Their facial expressions froze and acted cautiously. They were afraid of being hit by the cars. Then the production found a traffic cop to direct traffic. Jimmy and the actress embraced 3 times before it was done.

Posted Image

San Lap marketing manager said, "The day they tested filming was okay. They didn't created choas. The male and female leads of Fang Yang De Xing Xing are Jummy Lin and Liu He Na. The production is still in the middle of preparation. Filming will start at the end of Dec.

Jimmy embracing the actress. Dec 9, 2006, 4:08pm

Jimmy talking on the phone and crossing the road. 3:56pm. The production workers directed traffic.

Really looking forward to see this new series, Jimmy in bed with a woman. :D

---------------------------------------
06/12/19

Jimmy Lin and Liu He Na are the male and female leads of San Lap's new idol series
"Fang Yang De Xing Xing". This is Jimmy's first idol series in his 15 years in the industry.
He won't have to wear a wig, but he has to worry about whether to dye his hair and pierce
his ears. This will also be his first series with love-making scenes.

Jimmy said that he had meetings with the producer Chen Yu San for several weeks about whether
he should pierce his ears. They already decided on it and even found a store to do it.
However, Father Lin was very concerned. He even went to see a fortune teller and was told that
ear-piercing is bad for Jimmy's future. Jimmy followed his father's advise and changed to
magnetic earrings. His ears would turn red after wearing them for a scene. He laughed, "My father
really believes in this. When I first started out, the red t-shirt was the fortune teller's
idea."

Jimmy turned down Liao Zhai 2 and another ancient series to be in Fang Yang De Xing Xing. At
his price of RMB90,000 per episode he is losing over RMB10M. But Jimmy doesn't mind because the
character is a super car racer. That's what's attractive to him. He will also have a lot of
emotional scenes. He showed off some car-overturning skills during screen testing. The producer was
impressed. Jimmy wondered what is so great about filming car overturning. He has 2
similar incidents this year.

This is his first working relationship with the Korean actress Liu He Na. The most difficult part
is that he has no idea what she is saying. He doesn't know when she actually stops talking.
They came out with the idea that the interrupter will act too so he will know when to pick up.

Jimmy and Liu He Na will have a love-making scene. It is sexy but not over-the-top.
Chen Yu San said, "San Lap's policy is no loving-making scenes in its idol series. I was
warned by my manager. But I want to turn Jimmy into a mature 26 yr old playboy. The type who
will go to bed with a woman after 3 dates. Without love-making scenes it is not too realistic
for a mature man."

Another piece of news about the new series:
----------------------

2006/12/18
KISS RADIO

Jimmy Lin is going to act in his first modern series "Fang Yang De Xing Xing". It is a
story about a rich son who gives up his family business to become a car racer and his love story with a jewelry counterfeiter. The female lead is the Korean actress Liu He Na. She learned Chinese for this series. During the press conferenec she talked to Jimmy in Chinese.

There are a lot of racing scenes in the series that Jimmy will be doing himself. He said, "Filming is easier than racing. When filiming you can repeat a scene as many times as you want, unlike in racing. In real races, when you fall in a ditch it is over. I am not concerned about these scenes. I am a pro. I will provide all the cars for filming." Jimmy impressed the director by rounding a curve on a slippery road in the rain. This series will air in March and it will definitely create an idol series wave.

Tidbits on Fang Yang De Xing Xing:

Liu He Na's character is Cinderella. She grows up poor and has to lie and cheat her way out of situations until she meets this rich guy, Jimmy. His father of course doesn't want his son to get involved with this woman from the wrong side of the tracks and tries to break them up. The rebellious son has a confrontation with the father and runs away from home. He goes to the countryside and become a mechanics to support himself.
...

Okay, someone else picks up from here. We can write the script.

Merry Christmas to y'all. Will miss you guys for a few days.

As for the new year, he will continue to participate in races. He said that he got more accompishments in racing than in the entertainment industry. "Because there is only one winner in races. There are so many awards in the music industry. My biggest wish is to get the championship in racing." There are many actors who like racing. Has racing become a hobby among them? Jimmy said it ain't so because racing is not an easy sports. "I have to put in a lot of energy and time. I have to decline many job offers to participate in races. I don't think many actors would do that."

Since Jimmy broke up with Ruby Lin, his love life has been an interest to many. He said, "I will get married before 35. Now I want to concentrate on work." Does he have a love interest? He said, "Not yet. Still waiting. Haven't met her yet." He said that he would like his OH to support his racing career and his busy schedule.

Fans Magazine 1/2007

Fang yang De Xing Xing by Jimmy Lin and "Korean New Star of the Year"
Liu He Na is this Spring's new series. Jimmy turned down several
Chinese ancient series to star in this series. This will be his attempt
of image-changing.

This series has a different style among today's super young idol series.
The storyline is consistant with San Lap's romantic idol theme. It is
not too far from everday life. There will also be racing scenes,
stylish jewelries, and beautiful sceneries. There is a reason to
get Jimmy to star in this series because he is a professional racer and
has won many winner's cups in races. This series is the first with a
Korean star. The director is from Hong Kong. He will film it
like a film.

This is Jimmy's first modern series. He is the 2nd young master of the
E. Shine Corporation. He is rebellious with outrageous acts. He can
sacrifice all for love and can destroy all after he loses love. He dares
to love and hate and can't be controlled. Jimmy turned down Liao Zhai 2
and other ancient series to be in this series. He said that he has
never starred in a modern series before. He wants to try something new.

Liu He Na screen tested 5 time before she signed on. San Lap's Chen Yu
San kept on praising Liu. Liu is beautiful and clean on camera. Chen
saw her picture in a magazine. She was filming the movie "The Sixth
Exit". Li Wei has a role as a movie star. San Lap will write a new
series for him in 2007. The model Hong Xiao Ling also has the role of a
bad girl.

-------------------

Jimmy's character can operator any motor vechicles: cars, trucks, earth
movers. His special skill is rebellion and never listens to his father.

Liu He Na's character is a Cinderella who has to support herself by
committing crimes. Her special skill is cheating and feigning innocence after
she is caught. She has served jail time. The first time she and Jimmy
meet is when they both have handcuffs on. It will be explosive.

This storyline is from the official San Lap's site:

http://www.settv.com...hool/index.html

Now I am not sure if this story has a happy or tragic ending. Is Jimmy really going to end up with LHN? It is a very interesting story, quite complicated.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Liu He Na is a 24 year old ex-felon on probation. She went to jail for
her lover. On the day of her release she goes to a 6 star hotel to buy
a gift for her lover.

Today is the wedding of E.SHINE Corporation's William Lap (son #1) and
Hong Xiao Ling's wedding. HXL is Jimmy Lin (son #2) ex-girlfriend. His
mother's heirloom, the Queen Mary, a blue diamond, is also to be
auctioned off today. Jimmy tried to avoid the wedding but was forced to
return to Taiwan. He slips into the bride's room and kisses HXL. He
then steals the Queen Mary, not wanting it to be auctioned and also to
avenge HXL's betrayal.

The Queen mary is lost. The wedding is cancelled. Security mistake Liu
as the thief and put handcuffs on her. Jimmy doesn't want an innocent
girl to take the blame so he flees with her. Liu puts the other side of
the handcuff on him. They run from the scene with handcuffs on.

Liu is afraid that Jimmy will harm her so she calls her lover for help.
He tells her he is already married and hangs up on her. During the
argument his wife goes into labor. Liu is mad and lies about Jimmy
being her boyfriend and they are getting married soon. Jimmy and Liu
get drunk after losing their lovers on the same day.

Liu unlocks the handcuff, a skill she picks up in jail, before she
collapses. Jimmy takes the drunk Liu to a hotel and is mistaken as a
rapist. The hotel manager calls the police.

Jimmy's family comes to bail him out and he returns the Queen Mary
keeping a small blue diamond for himself. Liu is also released. Jimmy
decides to leave with Liu to Tomorrow's Village to find life's "10,000
prossibilities".

Because of Jimmy's outrageous behavior, E. Shine Corporation is put into a
tailspin. Management demands that William Lap find the Queen Mary
before a deadline. Paparazzi backmails him with a photo of his fiancee
kissing his brother on his wedding day. He didn't know about their
relationship and begins to doubt who she really loves.

Jimmy and Liu arrive at Tomorrow Village and are kidnapped for payment
on bad debts. They flee on a stoken motorbike with broken brakes and
run into a pile of durian, the entire harvest of the village. Villagers
force them to sign a loan contract for payment.

Liu's uncle owe a lot of gambling debts. Jimmy suggests that they will
race. If he wins the debt will be forgiven. He wins and becomes the hero
of the village. Liu starts to have feelings for Jimmy but her
girlfriend asks her to set her up with him.

Meanwhile, another guy asks Jimmy to set him up with Liu. The ferris
wheel that Jimmy and Liu are on breaks and they are stuck in the air
from day to night. They fall in love and Jimmy promises that he will
get her a real diamond.

Jimmy enters the Mr Durian contest and wins. His picture appears in the
newspaper and his identity is exposed. Liu is shocked to learn the
truth. HXL finds out that Jimmy has fallen in love with an ex-felon and
gets very jealous. William Lap, her fiance, realizes that she is still
in love with his brother so he breaks off the engagement.

Jimmy begs Liu for forgiveness and accepts his love and they reconcile.
However, Jimmy's father force him to leave her. Jimmy cuts off all ties
with his father and is willing to spend the rest of his life in the
village as a mechanics. Jimmy's father cut off all financial supports.

Liu's ex-lover's daughter needs surgery. He asks Liu to borrow money
from Jimmy's family. She then realizes the gulf between Jimmy and her.
She is ready to give him up so he can have a better future. However,
Jimmy misunderstands her and returns home in rage. He seems to have
lost his soul after he returns home. His older brother set up a meeting
with Liu to talk to her about Jimmy. On the way to the meeting he is
killed in a car accident. Jimmy blames Liu for his brother's death and
hates her.

Jimmy's characters change after the death and goes to work for his
father. He becomes a ruthless workaholic businessman. Because of guilt
towards his brother he treats HXL, his ex-fiancee, well and tries to
satisfy her every needs. HXL helps him in his work thinking that she
will marry him one day.

Jimmy's hatred for Liu is as deep as his love for her. When he thinks
of the good time he has with her he wants revenge. If he can meet her
again he will make her life miserable to avenge her betrayal...

Entertainers participating in the racing circle seems to be a trend lately. Entertainers need to have break-throughs and try out new styles. Audience also acquire new taste. But most entertainers just dabble in racing or do it for show. None is like Jimmy Lin who races as a career. As an "older" entertainer, Jimmy's fame has not diminished. He stirs up a storm at every race he particiates in. More and more young people learn about the CRC and racing through him. But most important, even though Jimmy has not been racing long he has improved tremendously. He has also formed Jimmy Lin Rally Team and racing has become his 2nd career. He is doing an excellent job in both the entertainment and racing worlds.

More pics and news from the 1/14/07 event.

Excerpt of the news:
Yesterday, the 5 male and female leads, all dressed in white, got together to film the ending credits of Fang Yang De Xing Xing. The 3 men showed their muscles and the 2 girls showed their shoulders.

Jimmy's character is a rebellious playboy who dares to love and dares to hate. He is also a F1 racer. His older brother, William Lap, is more conservative. Jimmy said, "The director want me to act in a totally new style. I will hide my natural smile and become cold and arrogant. I watched Leonardo DiCaprio's "Blood Diamond" to see how he used his eyes to act."

Jimmy Lin
Jimmy Lin Rally Team
Participated races: CRC

Entertainers participating in the racing circle seems to be a trend lately. Entertainers need to have break-throughs and try out new styles. Audience also acquire new taste. But most entertainers just dabble in racing or do it for show. None is like Jimmy Lin who races as a career. As an "older" entertainer, Jimmy's fame has not diminished. He stirs up a storm at every race he particiates in. More and more young people learn about the CRC and racing through him. But most important, even though Jimmy has not been racing long he has improved tremendously. He has also formed Jimmy Lin Rally Team and racing has become his 2nd career. He is doing an excellent job in both the entertainment and racing worlds.
