Lindsey Vonn Lands a Bit Role on Law & Order
Dreams keep coming true for Lindsey Vonn: After winning two medals at the Vancouver Winter Olympics, the alpine skier has landed a role on her favorite TV show, Law & Order.
Olympic Moment: With screams and tears, Vonn wins downhill
Vonn, who's been described as obsessed with the NBC procedural, received the good news during an interview with Bob Costas on Saturday night. After looking back at her Olympics performance, which included several injuries, a gold medal in women's downhill and a bronze medal in super-G, Costas told Vonn she has been cast as a jury foreman in an upcoming episode.
The pair even ran through Vonn's lines.
The role is an upgrade from what Vonn said she'd settle for: She said she "totally would" have played a corpse just to be on the show.
Law & Order returns with new episodes Monday at 10/9c.
