Forget London. Ryan Lochte is looking to make a name for himself in Beverly Hills.

TVLine reports that the multi-medaled Olympian has been cast in an upcoming episode of 90210, his first TV-acting gig. And mark your calendars, because we already know that the ep is slated to air October 29.

Now, before you start to worry about Ryan's lack of acting training, his role won't be that much a stretch. The Olympic athlete will be playing an Olympic athlete, or more notably, himself.

Based on previous interviews, we assumed Ryan would make his Hollywood debut on reality TV. But that Lochte is full of surprises.

The new season of 90210 premieres Monday, October 8, 2012 on The CW.
