Look who’s acting up again.

His ugly split with fiancee Vienna Girardi may be dead and bitterly buried, but former ‘Bachelor‘ Jake Pavelka isn’t done with ‘Diva’ behavior.

Pavelka makes his acting debut on Lifetime’s ‘Drop Dead Diva‘ and we have a sneak peek.

In his first non-reality TV role, Pavelka, 32, plays a ‘Bachelor’ type on the lighthearted legal series, guest starring as a suitor on a fictional dating show called ‘Finding the One.’ (Okay, so he’s taking baby steps toward his much desired acting career.)

But love gets complicated–as it so often does when dating on TV–and the faux show’s producer gets sued for “intentionally inflicting emotional harm” when loverboy Toby Devlin spurns one bachelorette contestant for another.

Jake’s ‘Diva’ episode, called ‘Good Grief,’ airs Sunday, Aug. 22, at 9 p.m./EST on Lifetime.

So, how does Jake do? Check out his performance in the clip below, then hit the comments and tell us what you think. Should he get back to ‘reality’? Should he stick with flying? Or is he the next Matthew McConaughey?
