Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps has traded his swimsuit for USA's "Suits" in an upcoming cameo on the cable series.
Last Summer it was first reported that Phelps would guest on the "Suits" mid-season premiere, and now here is the first photo from his appearance:

USA Today has additional details on Phelps' cameo, revealing that Abigail Spencer's character "is determined to land the star athlete for the [law] firm. They're at a restaurant when Phelps walks in. Spencer serves up some saucy dialogue and Phelps plays it cool."
Gabriel Macht, who plays Harvey Specter on the series commented on Phelps' acting abilities. "When it came to shooting, he turned out to be complete natural. We'd love to have him back," he told USA Today.
This isn't the first time that Phelps has guest starred as himself on a television series. Check out the clip below when Phelps made a cameo on HBO's "Entourage."
Michael Phelps' episode of "Suits" will air Mar. 6 on USA.
