LOS ANGELES - Lindsey Vonn is going from Olympic star to "Law & Order" bit player and said she's delighted about it.
"How many people get to appear on their favourite TV show?" Vonn said Wednesday in a statement released by series creator Dick Wolf.
In the crime drama's season finale, the skier will play an administrative assistant with a vital clue in a case involving a terrorist. She's set to film her scene with series stars Jeremy Sisto, Anthony Anderson and Alana de la Garza next week in Brooklyn.
The air date for the episode, written and directed by executive producer Rene Balcer, will air in May. The date was not announced.
Vonn, who won a gold medal in downhill skiing and captured a bronze in the super-G, announced during the games that she had been invited to take part in "Law & Order."
