Someone at 90210 is locked in to the pop culture summer scene.

With musical sensation Carly Rae Jepsen set to perform on the Season 5 premiere, TV Line now reports that Gold Medalist Ryan Lochte has also landed a role on The CW drama.

The swimmer will appear as himself on an upcoming fall episode, running into Max and Naomi at a resort where the couple is working on its relationship.

Lochte is locked in on turning his exploits in the London pool into various gigs on the small screen. He has talked openly about competing on Dancing with the Stars or even becoming the next Bachelor.

90210, meanwhile, returns on October 8 and will feature another guest star that actually has us more excited than this Olympian: former Secret Circle actress Jessica Parker Kennedy. She will appear on multiple Season 5 episodes.
