Ryan Lochte Lands First TV Acting Gig
Ryan Lochte emerged from the London Summer 2012 Olympics and he mentioned during his stint in Olympics that he would like get into fashion design and was interested in acting. Well now the swimmer has landed his first acting job.
Lochte, 28, who won two gold medals in London, will play himself in a cameo appearance in the high-school TV series “90210” in October, producers said on Tuesday. The U.S. swimmer will cross paths with Naomi Clark, played by AnnaLynne McCord, and Max Miller (Josh Zuckerman), at a resort where they are trying to rebuild their rocky relationship. When they found out Ryan was going to be in town and offered him a chance to be on the CW show they felt like they were winning gold. Unfortunately, the episode is not a surf event so they could have gotten him in the water but his appearance on the show will be a dry land appearance.
Lochte has been busy fielding offers from Hollywood since he made a splash at London 2012. He said last week he was moving from Florida to Los Angeles and would love to appear on TV contest “Dancing with the Stars” or “The Bachelor”. The single swimmer became a social media sensation during the London Olympics, thanks to his penchant for flashy jewel-encrusted teeth grills, playful rivalry with Michael Phelps, and good looks that had some commentators comparing him to movie heart-throb Ryan Gosling.
