'Drop Dead Diva' sneak peek: Does 'Bachelor' Jake Pavelka have the chops for acting?


"The Bachelor's" Jake Pavelka's break up with Vienna Girardi has been all over the news and somehow his desire to be a thespian has played some role in the break up.

While he has apparently acted previously in two episodes of "Walker Texas Ranger," that's a far cry from starring opposite Glenn Close in "Damages." Just sayin'.

On "Drop Dead Diva," Pavelka plays 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." Baby steps, right, Jake?

In the preview above from Entertainment Tonight, Jake is testifying in court. We think he comes off a bit stiff and the fact that there are very few continuous shots between him and the other actors might mean that he delivered his lines in short spurts and then they were edited into the sequence.

That's just our opinion. What's yours? Does Jake Pavelka have the chops for acting?
