Jake Pavelka to Play a Bachelor on Drop Dead Diva

Jake Pavelka will be a bachelor on TV once more - this time on Drop Dead Diva.

In a nod to his reality-dating roots, the Bachelor and Dancing with the Stars alum will guest-star on the Lifetime series as a suitor on a fictional dating show, People reports.

Pavelka will play Toby Devlin on the faux show Finding the One, whose producer is sued for "intentionally inflicting emotional harm" after Toby dumps one bachelorette for another.

"I am honored to be a part of Drop Dead Diva this season and cannot wait to meet the cast and crew," Pavelka said in a statement.

The 32-year-old pilot was "spot-on" when he auditioned for the part, creator and executive producer Josh Berman said.

This will not be Pavelka's first stab at acting: In 1999, he played a young version of Chuck Norris' Cordell Walker on Walker, Texas Ranger under the stage name Jake Landrum.

Pavelka will film Diva on June 18, and the episode is slated to air Aug. 22.

An e-mail to Lifetime was not immediately returned.

Drop Dead Diva airs Sundays at 9/8c on Lifetime.
