Olympic Swimmer Ryan Lochte’s Funny or Die Acting Debut: How’d He Do?

We heard it was coming, and now the video is here! Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte makes his acting debut — well, his Internet acting debut — in a brand new Funny or Die spoof video.

The video stars Sir Patrick Stewart, a “highly successful stage and screen actor,” we’re told, and also “a knight.” (All these are true, of course, but we’d like to point out that he’s also Professor X from X Men.)

Patrick is a cutthroat ticket scalper working the streets of London during the 2012 Olympic Games, and he happens to bump into none other than Ryan Lochte outside the stadium.

Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams also stars, along with British actor Simon Pegg — who finds himself in a very interesting situation by the end of it.

But let’s get back to Ryan, because isn’t everything about Ryan Lochte these days? We’re pretty sure it’s a sort of an unspoken universal mandate.

Ryan’s Funny or Die version of himself is everything you would expect. He’s wearing those signature green kicks. He’s showing off that infamous grill. In short, it’s pretty rad. Jeah!

How would you rate Ryan’s big Internet acting debut?
