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, 25, has three Olympic gold medals, two silver and a bronze.
