Thanks to Twitter, breaking news happens at the click of a button.
One of the writers for NBC sitcom “30 Rock” just tweeted a photo of “30 Rock’s” matriarch Tina Fey posing with the decorated Olympian Ryan Lochte.

America’s second favorite swimmer is reportedly taking Hollywood by storm, probably realizing that by the next summer Olympics he’ll be over-30, aka his career is over.
NBC told Hollyscoop that Lochte is confirmed to have a cameo on the silly sitcom.
His rep also told us, “Yes he is, he shot the first scene today and will shoot the second scene tomorrow.”
This comes after the news that Lochte will also have a role on The CW show “90210.” As long as he remembers his lines, he’s already better at acting than Michael Phelps.
Lochte is also going to attend New York Fashion Week as a special “fashion” correspondent for E! news.
Hold your laughter please. The verbally challenged swimming hunk will not only be interviewing people on the red carpet, but he will also be expected to talk about fashion. I cannot wait to watch the mess that will undoubtedly unfold. I would pay good money to hear Lochte pronounce Giuseppe Zanotti correctly.
From the mouth of Lochte himself: “I mean, I’m sure I’m going to talk with [E!] tomorrow and they’ll give me who I’m interviewing and what I’m going to say and stuff…I’m gonna be the one interviewing people, which is going to be totally weird.”
