An NBC spokeswoman told TheWrap that he will appear on the show but was unable to say when Lochte's episode would air or how his cameo would fit into the plot.
Lochte's "30 Rock" appearance is the latest in a multitude of media drop-ins, including an upcoming appearance on the CW's "90210," on which he'll play a guest at a resort where Naomi Clark (AnnaLynne McCord) and Max Miller (Josh Zuckerman) are staying in an effort to strengthen their relationship. (The "90210" appearance will run Oct. 29.)
Meanwhile, "30 Rock" — which is preparing to wrap up its run with a 13-episode, seventh and final season — has added other guest stars for its swan song. "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston and Catherine O'Hara have been booked for guest appearances on the show, playing the parents of page-turned-janitor Kenneth Parcell.
Lochte, 28, has expressed an interest in diving into reality TV, saying that he'd like to appear on "Dancing With the Stars" or "The Bachelor."
