If there was a gold medal for fastest Olympic athlete to break into Hollywood, Ryan Lochte would win that, too. After announcing just last week that he had plans to move to LA to launch a clothing line and become a reality TV star, the 28-year-old Team USA swimmer and overnight heartthrob has landed a deal to appear on The CW's 90210.
E! Online reveals that Lochte will play himself in a small cameo on the show, airing October 29. While 90210 producers are "so excited" for his appearance, they tell E! that there's one thing that would have made it perfect: "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."
