Olympics 2012: Ryan Lochte Conned by Patrick Stewart in Funny or Die Short (Video)

The British knight tricks the swimmer out of an important Summer Games ticket, with the help of "Game of Thrones" star Maisie Williams.

Ryan Lochte may dominate in the pool, but he’s easy pickings on the streets of London, as a disguised Patrick Stewart and a pintsized Game of Thrones star demonstrate in a new Funny or Die video.

Stewart, dressed like a common ticket scalper/Dickens character, and assistant Maisie Williams con unsuspecting Americans out of their hard-earned cash and prime Olympic real estate.

When the duo comes across Lochte—on the way to his final event of the Games—they trick him out of the most exclusive Olympics ticket of all. Meanwhile, Simon Pegg (Scotty in 2009’s Star Trek) runs into the gang, and Stewart compliments his work in Star Wars.

The video lets Lochte show off his audacious Olympic gear (yes, the grill makes an appearance) and gives him a chance to stretch his acting muscles.

Though Lochte is stiff next to pro like Stewart, the swimmer may have a career in television yet. He is entertaining multiple reality TV offers, says his agent.
