JTA — Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman will appear in the latest “Charlie’s Angels” film.
“I’m officially an angel (Is this real life?),” the American-Jewish gymnast tweeted Wednesday night, followed by a series of photos. One featured Raisman standing beside the film’s director and co-writer, Elizabeth Banks, who plays Bosley. She thanked Banks and Sony Pictures for including her in the film.
The “Charlie’s Angels” series — this will be the third film produced since 2000 — is based on a 1970s TV show of the same title. The plot, which has feminist messages, is about a group of young women who work as private detectives in an agency run by a wealthy mystery man named Charlie.
Fellow Olympian and snowboarder Chloe Kim also is making a cameo in the film, the Boston Globe reported Thursday.

Raisman, who competed on the 2012 and 2016 US women’s Olympic gymnastics teams, has made cameos before, appearing on “Lip Sync Battle” and in a Maroon 5 video, but has yet to appear on the silver screen, according to IMDb.
Raisman, 25, has three Olympic gold medals, two silver and a bronze.
