Michael Phelps, Gabriel Macht

Suits just snagged itself a sports legend.

Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian of all time, will guest star on the USA drama as himself, the network announced today.

The swimmer will appear in the midseason premiere (2014) as the big client that Harvey (Gabriel Macht) could never land. Harvey and Phelps apparently have a less-than-harmonious history together, and that past comes back to bite Harvey in the you-know-what when Scottie (Abigail Spencer) makes it her mission to woo Phelps as her first client.

Phelps, who has a total of 22 Olympic medals, is no stranger to the small screen. He's appeared on an episode of Entourage as himself and hosted Saturday Night Live in 2008.

Suits is currently airing part one of its third season on USA.
