LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Now that his Olympic run in London is over, Ryan Lochte is moving to a very famous zip code.
The swimming sensation will guest star in an upcoming episode of “90210,” The CW announced on Tuesday.
Lochte will play himself in the episode, as a guest at a resort where series characters Max and Naomi are staying to work on their relationship.
“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!” said Executive Producers Patti Carr and Lara Olsen. “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.”
The episode is slated to air October 29.
While the cameo marks the first-ever TV series appearance for the 11-time Olympic medalist, Lochte has already shown off his acting chops.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, earlier this month, the swimmer starred in a pair of sketches for FunnyOrDie.com, alongside Sir Patrick Stewart, “Game of Thrones” actress Maisie Williams and Simon Pegg.
