The actor, who had played Special Agent Aaron Hotchner since the series' 2005 debut, told People that his run-in with writer-producer Virgil Williams was a minor incident that was blown out of proportion.

Ryan Lochte is diving into a new competition. The Olympic gold medalist and Rio Public Enemy No. 1 is joining ABC’s hoofer competition show Dancing with the Stars. The deal apparently was in the works before the Olympics — and before he and some Team USA buddies swam into trouble with Brazilian authorities.
Lochte, of course, still is dealing with fallout from the incident in Rio in which he claimed to NBC’s Billy Bush he and three other U.S. swimmers were pulled over by… Read

The Rio Games are over, but NBC isn’t done with Michael Phelps — or vice versa. The network said today that the most-medaled athlete in Olympics history will co-host tonight’s edition of America’s Got Talent.

Phelps, who won another five gold medals in Brazil this month and was the flag bearer for Team USA in the… Read
