Ryan Lochte is dipping his toes into the acting pool.
The Team USA swimmer is starring in two new sketch videos for the comedy website Funny Or Die.
In the first sketch ("The Olympic Ticket Scouter"), "Star Trek" legend Sir Patrick Stewart appears as an Olympic ticket scalper, who charms Ryan out of his Olympic ID badge with the help of "Games of Thrones" actress Maisie Williams.
After scoring Lochte's badge, the sneaky pair sell it to an unwitting Simon Pegg (an alum of the 2009's big screen "Star Trek"), who ends up in a Speedo on the starting platform at the Olympic pool.
The second sketch, titled "Peeing in Pools with Ryan Lochte," pokes fun at his recent revelation that he has, indeed, peed in many a pool.
"The way I see it, the pool is the biggest and the most expensive toilet, and it's all mine," Lochte says in the video. "That's the only time I allow myself to pee... I hold it in until I get to the pool."
