Regis Philbin, former television host, may be interning for hedge-fund mogul David Einhorn at Greenlight Capital this summer, says Business Insider.

Einhorn called into CNBC’s “Fast Money” to commend Philbin for his successful stock pick of Micron Energy, which Einhorn has shares in. The stock doubled after Philbin’s investment.

Einhorn said to Philbin on air: “You did such a good job finding Micron and it doubled and I thought it was good. And then I thought maybe I could take your advice for the summer, and I was wondering where trying to get some young blood in at Greenlight, some young minds and I was wondering if you want to come intern for the summer.”

Philbin said he’d love to work with Einhorn, and as per Einhorn’s request, will have to pick two winning stocks.
