Michael Phelps to make TV cameo on ‘Suits’

The most decorated Olympian of all time is returning … to the small screen.

Michael Phelps is set to shoot a few scenes for USA Network legal drama “Suits” this week in Toronto. The episode, its winter premier, with Phelps will air in early 2014.

Phelps will play himself. The show is set at a fictional law firm trying to land Phelps as a client. Phelps also appeared on “The Apprentice” in 2005 and “Shaq Vs.” in 2009.

It’s safe to assume Phelps’ cameo will be a bit longer than his scene on “Entourage” in 2008.

Phelps hosted “Saturday Night Live” in 2008, which included this bit, among others:
