Olympic swimming phenom Michael Phelps expects to be in deep comic waters when he hosts Saturday Night Live's 34th season premiere this weekend.
"I'm probably more nervous doing this than I was swimming in Beijing, I'll tell you that!" Phelps, 23, said Thursday.
Phelps, who won a record eight gold medals, began reading through skits with the cast Wednesday night, and it's already clear his wardrobe will be kept to a minimum, with parodies of his Olympics moments, his skimpy Speedos, his emotional mom in the stands - and even Phelps as Aquaman.
"There's some really, really funny skits - anything you can imagine, they nailed just about every topic," Phelps says.
