Ryan Lochte has booked his first TV acting gig, a role he's very suited for on "90210." According to TVLine, the Olympic swimmer will play himself in an upcoming episode.

Look for Lochte to pop up at a resort where Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) and Max (Josh Zuckerman) are staying.

Since the 2012 Olympic Games, Lochte hasn't been shy about his TV ambitions, but most of them have been reality related. "Since I'm so used to competing against Michael Phelps, I'd have him on the [Dancing with the Stars]," Lochte told Us Weekly. "I could do 'Dancing with the Stars'! Yeah, I think so."

Lochte has also hinted at appearing on another ABC reality series: "The Bachelor." According to Lochte's agent, he has multiple offers, and he told "Today" "Bachelor" is definitely on his radar. "I'm definitely looking toward 'Dancing With the Stars' and 'The Bachelor,' so we'll see what happens," he said.

Meanwhile, Lochte's teammate and competitor Michael Phelps will head to The Golf Channel for "The Haney Project," a series that features Hank Haney improving amateur golfers' games.

"90210" returns to The CW on Mon., Oct. 8 at 8 p.m. ET.
