Now that he’s finished competing in the 2012 summer Olympics, Ryan Lochte is heading in front of the camera for a little acting.

The superstar swimmer teamed up with Brits Patrick Stewart, Simon Pegg and “Game of Thrones” teen Maisie Williams for a Funny Or Die video.

“On the set of @funnyordie w/ @simonpegg @maisiewiilliams & Patrick Stewart about to do my first acting debut,” Ryan Tweeted on Tuesday, posting a photo with the three Brits.

Simon, who stars as Scotty in “Star Trek,” kept his Tweet about their video a bit more “cryptic.”

“Much fun this morning hanging out with a Knight, an Olympic gold medalist and GoT’s @Maisie_Williams. All will be revealed soon.#cryptic,” he Tweeted.

Meanwhile, Maisie, who plays Arya Stark on “Game of Thrones,” noted she was impressed by her Funny Or Die cast.

“Star struck?! Famous shakespearean actor!! Funniest man alive!! And an Olympic gold medalist,” the teen wrote.
