Olympic champion Missy Franklin won four gold medals in London, and now she’s putting her bright, light bulb ready grin to good use for her movie debut, in Vince Vaughn’s upcoming comedy The Internship.
“I got a cameo in the upcoming movie The Internship. It’s with Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, and I am soooo excited about it,” the 17-year-old swimmer told the Today show’s Matt Lauer on Friday.
“So what are you actually going to do?” asked Lauer.
“You’re going to have to wait and see,” demurred Colorado native Franklin, already a secretive old press pro.
Franklin also talked about getting a tattoo, the Olympic rings, on her right hip, and her continued love of Justin Bieber.
Franklin will shoot the cameo in the next few months. The Internship, about two laid-off guys interning at a web company, is set for release next year.
