Missy Franklin nabs role in Vince Vaughn movie 'The Internship'

missy-franklin-getty.jpgOlympic gold-medal winning swimmer Missy Franklin, all of 17 years old and a relative unknown to most of the country before the 2012 London Summer Games, had some big news to share Friday morning (Aug. 24) on "Today."

"I got a cameo in the upcoming movie 'The Internship,' it's with Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn and I am so excited about it," Franklin gushes.

But when asked for details about the role, she laughs and says, "You're gonna have to wait and see!"

"The Internship" is a 2013 movie that stars Wilson and Vaungh as two recently laid-off men in their 40s who try to make it as interns at an Internet company where their managers are 20-somethings.

Franklin also tells Matt Lauer that Justin Bieber, upon hearing she's a huge fan, sent Missy a care package full of CDs and posters and t-shirts. She hopes to meet him at an upcoming concert in Denver.

Finally, Franklin is currently trying to choose between going pro in swimming and swimming in college. She has previously said she wants to swim in college and she is pretty sure she still does, so it'll be interesting to see which school nabs the famous swimmer.
