Michael Phelps to appear on USA's 'Suits'

August 28, 2013|By Chris Kaltenbach | The Baltimore Sun

Baltimore's favorite half-man, half-fish, Olympian extraordinaire Michael Phelps, will have a cameo on the midseason premiere of USA's "Suits."

Phelps will play himself, the only athlete whom lawyer Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) could never land. Things get complicated when rival Scottie (Abigail Spencer) also tries to court Phelps.

Phelps is a fan of the show; in July, he tweeted that the current season is "awesooommee!!!" and has listed the show as one of his favorites, according to the Hollywood Reporter. (You can read the Hollywood Reporter story on Phelps' upcoming TV appearance here.)

This is far from the first time Phelps has appeared on TV. He played himself on HBO's "Entourage," hosted "Saturday Night Live" and worked on his golf swing on the Golf Channel. You might remember he also enjoyed a good bit of face time during NBC's Summer Olympics coverage in 2008 and 2012.

The midseason premiere of "Suits" will air in the first quarter of 2014.
