Talk about a stretch: on an upcoming episode of Drop Dead Diva, Jake Pavelka plays a single guy looking for love as the cameras role for a reality TV competition.

"You're not gonna see Jake," Pavelka insisted of his performance while guest-hosting Good Morning Texas on Friday.

"I am acting! This is a fictitious character that I came up with in my head," single-again Pavelka explains.

Recently split from fiancee Vienna Girardi, Pavelka plays Toby Davlin, star of a fictitious, Bachelor-esque show on the "Good Grief" episode of the Lifetime series.

"He has similar life experiences but made very different choices...he's not that nice of a guy."

On the episode, Toby dumps show contestant Wendy (Camile Guaty), who bursts into tears after the rejection and sues the show's producers for inflicting emotional pain. On the witness stand, Toby quips that he was "just looking out for myself" during the romantic misadventure.
