Ryan Lochte is really diving into the acting pool!

Since nabbing gold at the London Olympics, the champion swimmer has booked guest-starring gigs on both 90210 and 30 Rock.

Could we be seeing more of the easy-on-the-eyes Olympian on the small screen?

Ryan Lochte "out of the running" for The Bachelor

We caught up with the 28-year-old backstage Friday at the Rebecca Minkoff show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City and posed the burning question: What TV show would he love to book next?

"Gossip Girl," the Olympic champ answered with a big smile.

The reason, he says, is pretty simple: "Because I have a big crush on Blake Lively!"

In fact, he admits that he wouldn't hesitate to give the show a shot, noting that "if I'm ever [considered for] Gossip Girl, I will not turn that down."

We'll say "Jeah!" to that.
