Ryan Lochte to guest star on '90210'
Jeah! Olympic gold medalist Ryan Lochte is heading back to the TV screen, though this time he won't be in London -- he will instead be on The CW's "90210."
CBS TV Studios announced Tuesday that the swimmer will be making a cameo appearance on the teen drama. He'll be playing a guest at a resort where Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) and Max (Josh Zuckerman) are staying. The episode is set to air on Monday, Oct. 29 at 8 p.m.
“When we found out Ryan Lochte was going to be in town and might appear on '90210,' we felt like we'd won a gold medal!" executive producers Patti Carr and Lara Olsen said in a statement. "Team USA are all-stars in our book, and we're so excited he's making an appearance on the show. We only wish the episode was a surf event so we could have gotten him in the water, but he deserves a little rest on dry land.”
Lochte has not been shy about sharing his small-screen goals. While in London, the 28-year-old swimmer told reporters that he'd like to compete on "Dancing With the Stars," and later hinted that perhaps he could be the next "Bachelor." His agent also told The Hollywood Reporter that Lochte has had several TV offers already.
Since winning five medals at the 2012 summer games, he's also appeared in two Funny or Die videos, one where he jokes about peeing in pools, and another appearing alongside Patrick Stewart, Simon Pegg and Maisie Williams.
