tina-fey-ryan-lochte-30-rock.jpg"30 Rock" needed someone to play a "sex idiot," so who better than Olympic gold medalist Ryan Lochte?

The swimming sensation filmed his cameo back in September, but the episode airs this week and NBC has some promo clips of Lochte and "30 Rock" star and executive producer Tina Fey talking about the appearance.

Lochte admits the role didn't ask for "much acting" (mostly because he's playing "himself") and says Alec Baldwin made him "feel really at home." Maybe it's just us, but we can't see Lochte say anything now without Seth MacFarlane coming immediately to mind.

In the second video, Fey declares Lochte "was very funny" and co-star Jane Krakowski wonders if he brought his medals to set.

Watch both interview clips below and check out a short preview of Lochte's scene with Baldwin and guest star Nina Arianda on NBC.com.
