Ladies and gents, welcome to the year -- or at least the remainder of the year -- of Ryan Lochte.

The U.S. Olympic swimmer rocketed to fame in part because of his masterful stroke, but also because of his impressive physique, his American flag grille, and his kind of absurd catchphrase (JEAH!). Oh, and then there was his admission that he pees in the pool.

All of these things taken together can only mean one thing: Lochte is Hollywood material! To kick off what will no doubt be a long and nuanced career in front of the camera, he recently filmed a guest spot for the CW's "90210." In the following Access Hollywood video, he explains the challenges of acting, which include but are not limited to having to talk and move at the same time.
