March 4, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Michael Phelps will appear in “Suits” when season 3 returns from a midseason break with episode 11 on March 6.

Phelps will be playing himself.

The famed Olympian comes into the story when Scottie recruits him as a client to try to impress Harvey. 

A photo released by USA Network shows the trio at a bar. 

Phelps is a fan of the show and the producers spent a lot of time recruiting him to be in it, reported The Hollywood Reporter. It started out when Phelps sent out a tweet proclaiming his love of the show in January 2013. 

Because Harvey is a sports enthusiast, Phelps fits nicely into the storyline.

Fellow Olympian Apolo Anton Ohno will cameo in a future episode.
