If you thought those silly little Funny or Die videos Ryan Lochte did earlier this month would be his one and only foray into the world of acting, think again.

The five-time Olympic gold medalist will soon be appearing on TV screens across America, and Access Hollywood has a sneak peek at his first official TV gig.

Ryan will play himself on the October 29 episode of The CW’s 90210. He’s working with AnnaLynne McCord (Naomi) and he’s going to be shirtless.

So what part of the process did Ryan find the most difficult? “Memorizing lines. And trying to say them and still, like, do movement and all that,” he says. “That was hard.”

Watch Ryan’s abs make their TV acting debut below.
