"I am honored to be a part of Drop Dead Diva this season, and cannot wait to meet the cast and crew," Pavelka told Us.
The 32-year-old will play Toby Davlin, a suitor on a dating show called Finding the One who dumps one bachelorette in favor of another -- leading the producer to be sued for "for intentionally conflicting emotional harm," according to Us.
