'Drop Dead Diva': 'Bachelor's' Jake Pavelka to guest star

drop-dead-diva-lifetime-jake-pavelka-bachelor-320.jpg"Bachelor" Jake Pavelka's single days aren't exactly over. No, he hasn't split with Vienna Girardi. He isn't a single guy in real life. He's just going to play one on TV.

According to Access Hollywood, Pavelka will be guest-starring in the Lifetime show, " Drop Dead Diva."

"When Jake came into the office to audition for the role, the whole production came to a stop," executive producer Josh Berman says. "Everyone wanted to talk with him. He was so gracious and charming. He was spot-on and won the role in the room."

Pavelka will play a role he's pretty used to - he'll be Toby Davlin, the bachelor on a dating show called "Finding the One." After Toby breaks the wrong girl's heart, she sues the show's producer for "intentionally inflicting emotional harm."

Hm, that sounds like a Jane ( Brook Elliott) case if we've ever heard one. Pavelka reportedly starts shooting on June 18 and the episode is set to air on August 22.

He's sort of playing himself, so this should be a breeze, right?
