Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte plays a “sex idiot” on this week’s “30 Rock,” where his opponent is the one and only Jack Donaghey (Alec Baldwin).
“The sex idiot … that’s what I’m playing,” Lochte explains of his guest starring role on the NBC sitcom. “But I get to play myself, just Ryan Lochte, so it’s not too much acting I have to do, so that’s pretty good.”
More specifically, he plays one of the several love interests of Jack’s new love interest.
“I’ve never really done any kind of acting on a street,” Lochte also says.
Actually, it’s more fun to hear Ryan explain it himself. Watch the Clip Above.
Then watch the clip below for Tina Fey’s assessment of how Ryan “Performed” on set.
“30 Rock” airs Thursday at 8/7c on NBC.
