This isn’t the first time that Phelps has done guest spot work. He also played himself in an episode of popular HBO show Entourage, while also hosting NBC’s Saturday Night Live, and on the Golf Channel show, “The Haney Project: Michael Phelps.”
Since the 2012 London Games there has been a rash of Olympians appearing on various cable shows, including swmimers Missy Franklin who appeared on Pretty Little Liars (as well as a cut scene from the Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson vehicle “The Internship”), and Ryan Lochte who appeared on 90210.
