Winter Olympics golden girl Lindsey Vonn is going from snow business to show business with a guest spot on her favorite TV show, ‘Law & Order.’

Vonn got the good word from NBC Olympics host Bob Costas during a Saturday night sit-down.

NBC isn’t officially confirming the booking, but Vonn – fresh off garnering a pair of gold medals  – reportedly will play a jury forewoman. The decorated skier will film her appearance after she returns from a few weeks’ worth of World Cup competition in Europe.

Vonn visited the long-running procedural’s set this past October, and partook in a mini-marathon of Season 19 episodes during some downtime prepping for the Winter Games.

“I’m excited to see the 20th season,” she told TVGuideMagazine.com.

To that end, hopefully her mom, who is also a huge fan, will DVR the two-hour season premiere airing this Monday – the same night Vonn is to visit with ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.’

What is it that draws Vonn to the original ‘Law & Order’ series? “I love that you know they are always going to catch the bad guy,” she explains, “and it will be OK in the end.”
