PLAYERS: Lindsay Lohan
The Sundance Film Festival is about to come down with a case of Linsanity — and we're not talking the Lindsay Lohan kind. Former New York Knick turned Houston Rocket Jeremy Lin couldn't attend the the premiere of the packed screening of "Linsanity," due to a scheduling conflict, but will now show up Sunday Jan. 27, the festival's final day. Lin will appear in person and bring along a couple of his Rocket teammates to watch the sports documentary which tells the story of the Harvard grad's rise to NBA fame last season. Lin, the first American of Chinese or Taiwanese descent to play in the NBA, led the bumbling Knicks to the playoffs and burst into national consciousness — kicking off the craze which became known as Linsanity. The film focuses on the 23-year-old Lin's wild ride to international fame as the cameras rolled and is produced by his brother, Joseph Lin. "I'm excited for Jeremy that he will be able to experience his Sundance premiere after all," said director Evan Jackson Leong.  "I'm thrilled I'll be able to watch the finished film with my film's subject." Linsanity already had a sold-out screening that drew fans from as far away as Hawaii.  Sunday's screening will be in Salt Lake City. Lin's story had all the elements of a Hollywood script.  Well here it is — in Indieland.
