ACTING & DIRECTING-

Young Again {AmerAsian3} (2017) - My 3rd installment of the AmerAsian Trilogy is currently in post-production with principal photography concluded in Summer 2009. Eric Young begins his final journey in graduate school where he is dared by Frates, his roommate, to try out for the Volcano baseball team by passing himself off as a decade younger. After Eric barely makes the cut, he returns the favor by mentoring Frates at catcher, despite the increasing suspicion of Smaller, the assistant coach, and Barber, the starting catcher. When the Volcanos learn they'll play a crucial exhibition against a minor league team, attracting several professional scouts, a physical and mental battle ignites between Eric and Frates for the starting job. But as the competition intensifies, Frates opts to take the ultimate short cut, causing tempers to fly out of control, and forcing Eric to learn the hard way just who Frates really is. Double Identity, Self-Deception & Steroid Abuse.

Great American Dream (2017) -
My second AmerAsian film is nearing completion. Eric Young and his new friend, Danny, re-enroll in college under false identities, attempting to erase their imperfect baseball pasts. As Eric tries his best to fit in on the team, he repeatedly finds himself the victim of jealous circumstances. However, Eric, still suffering from the loss of his father, connects deeply with Coach Pierce, still suffering from the loss of his son. But the closer the pair become, the further Danny distances himself, as he experiments with performance enhancing drugs. When a pair of racist enemies from the past unexpectedly resurface, Eric and his career swings full circle, presenting a bittersweet chance at redemption. Thus, Eric, forced to enter biggest game of his life, must stay completely hidden behind the catchers mask, or jeopardize his identity amidst an increasingly ominous situation. Hidden Identities, Lost Loved Ones, Banned Substances, Racism & Redemption.

Not So Young (2017) - My debut AmerAsian film as writer/ producer/ director/ actor has been completed. Eric Young, stagnant and lifeless since his father's death, is coerced by his best friend, Sean, to borrow an identity and take back a forgone year baseball eligibility. Once in class, Eric immediately connects with Monica, the charming, All-American daughter of his coach, Coach Donovan. Although Eric works harder than anyone to earn playing time, the jealous Donovan permanently relegates him to the bench. Due to his own hidden motives, Sean warns Eric to steer clear of Monica and to focus strictly on baseball. But when Eric turns the other ear, he finds the closer he grows to Monica, the deeper secrets he learns about her abusive past. Eric is ultimately forced to the weigh the challenges of his own mental well-being against the rapidly unfolding consequences of Monica and her self-destructive behavior. Stolen Identity, Manipulation, Jealousy, Revenge & Abuse.

Rush Hour 2 (2001) - My first-ever job behind the camera was as a stand-in for Jackie Chan during latter stages of production. Watching Jackie work with Brett Ratner was an extremely enlightening experience, teaching me the value of timing, precision & perfection.


ACTING-

Navy N.C.I.S. (2007) I played a military- connected man who killed himself. Or did he? The detectives search to discover the truth.

L.A. Forensics (2007) I played a property owner who is kidnapped, bound & gagged with duct tape, beaten, doused in gasoline, before being set on fire and burning to death.

Rumor Has It (2005) I played a Venture Capitalist in a scene with Kevin Costner and Jennifer Aniston in this Rob Reiner film. (Although my scene was not in the final cut.)

Coach Carter (2005) Benson Chiu, a high school board member, who votes to end the basketball team lockout and fire Coach Carter.

Tonight Show w/ Jay Leno (2003-09) Various characters ranging from an Olympic Runner on steroids to an English-to-English translator.

Gyro For Hire (2003) My first lead was in this short film. Although it will may never be finished, the experience gave me the know-how and the confidence to wear many different hats on the same project.

Alias (2002) The Gasping Body, who lays on the evil doctor’s gurney with his eye sewed shut, but grabs Sydney Bristow (Jennifer Garner) for help.

The Young & the Restless (2002) Dr. Mitch Liu, who gives Diego his release from the hospital after a serious head injury.

Vanilla Sky (2001) My first, most memorable role was as a SWAT officer commanding David Aames (Tom Cruise) to drop his gun. When he didn't comply, I was forced to shoot him and his psychiatrist (Kurt Russell) with my gun, but all part of David's lucid dream. Although this scene didn't make the final cut either, the role proved to be a huge turning point for me. Director Cameron Crowe was phenomenal to work for and from that day, I knew what I needed to do the rest of my life.


ROGER'S BIO-

Roger Lim was born and raised in San Francisco, CA. His first three combined acting, directing, producing & writing efforts make up the AmerAsian Trilogy- AmerAsian (2010), Great American Dream (2011), and Young Again (2012). The features, all currently in post-production, are closely based upon a series of adverse personal relationships revolving around Roger’s immensely challenging baseball journey.

Back in his playing days, Roger pitched nationally recognized Lowell High School to their first ever victory at Candlestick Park as an All-City junior, but was forced to overcome a serious career-threatening rotator cuff injury as a senior. After extensive rehab, he walked on to the Dons' outfield at the University of San Francisco as a freshman, a squad from which 10 of his teammates went on to sign professionally. He transferred over to Cal State East Bay to start in left field his junior year, finishing as the Pioneers' second leading hitter.

After a major disagreement with his head coach, he relinquished his final year of eligibility and returned to USF to earn his B.A. in Psychology. He played out the remainder of his baseball career at catcher and third base for various college and semi-pro teams up and down California, garnering tryouts at Philadelphia Phillie, Seattle Mariner, and Major League Scouting Bureau camps. After a series of injuries, Roger settled in Los Angeles to enroll in commercial acting classes, only to find himself gearing up behind the plate once again- this time catching Hideo Nomo in an international Nike campaign.

That same year, Roger’s initial inspiration to direct behind the lens was sparked while standing-in for Jackie Chan on Brett Ratner’s Rush Hour 2 (2001). Once on set, he studied the pair’s tireless energy toward finely detailed perfection. His most crucial inspiration to work dramatically in front of the lens came when Cameron Crowe cast him opposite Tom Cruise & Kurt Russell in Vanilla Sky (2001). Although Roger didn't survive the final cut of his debut film role, he was introduced to Meisner training, helping him land his first television roles on Alias, N.C.I.S., and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

While training at Larry Moss Studios, scene study instructor, Michelle Danner, inspired and influenced Roger to create his own material, sparking him to script his AmerAsian Trilogy .In addition to television & film, Roger continues to appear in commercials and print ads, having modeled in over 150 campaigns thus far. An avid networker and film festival supporter, he actively scouts actors, crew, musicians, and other artists year-round to collaborate with for future filmmaking efforts.

FAVORITE QUOTE- "The best thing I ever did in my life was that I never gave up." -- Jackie Chan
