Michael Phelps will play himself on 'Suits' episode Thursday night

Fans of the USA Network drama "Suits" will see one of their own on the show's Thursday night season premiere as Michael Phelps  pops in for a four-line appearance.

The most decorated Olympian in history will play himself on the episode, scheduled to air at 9 p.m.

Phelps' IMDb page also includes a 2008 appearance on HBO's "Entourage" in which he played, you guessed it, himself.

The "Suits" appearance comes after several months of relative quiet for the retired swimmer, who spurred comeback speculation last year by re-entering the drug testing pool for international competition. Though Phelps has worked out with his longtime coach Bob Bowman, he has made no definitive statements about future plans for swimming.

A representative said Phelps wasn't available for an interview this week.
