Retired American Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps was recently part of an episode of the hit primetime law drama "Suits" and his presence in the show has entertainment insiders wondering if he is considering making the move to acting and using his appearance as a way to 'test the waters'.

Michael Phelps is one of the most recognized athletes in the world, especially in the United States as his accomplishments as an Olympic swimmer have made him a celebrity and the dream guy of many a woman in the United States. His appearance on the show was a smart move for Michael Phelps because it introduced him to a viewing audience that is not his core audience but let him leave fans with an impression of him for potential future appearances on this show and maybe some other dramatic shows. 
There are some Hollywood executives, both film and television who looked at his upcoming appearance on "Suits" as a way to test out the popularity of Michael Phelps concerning television ratings. During the 2008 and 2012 Olympics the mere mention of Michael Phelps preparing to compete seemed to bring even the non-sport enthusiast to the television to watch him compete to see if he could win another Olympic gold and possibly set a world record in the process.

Michael Phelps' presence on "Suits" was viewed by some executives as a way to see if the reverse would occur and would he bring fans of his athletic exploits to the show and while his roles was small he did generate attention within both the sporting world and the entertainment industry so his appearance was considered a success. 
The show "Suits" is one of the most popular USA Networ television series and yet the news that Michael Phelps would be part of an episode at times was the big draw of the show leading up to its recent airing on television. Michael Phelps' presence brought his fans to the show even though many were likely not fans of the show prior to his appearance.
That is what they call in the entertainment industry, having the "It" factor and it is something that Michael Phelps possesses in abundance and is why he will likely continue to be a popular target for television executives for either cameo appearances or possibly even more substantial speaking roles in the future.
