The character's storyline will center around the producer of the faux show, who is being sued for "intentionally inflicting emotional harm" after Jake's character breaks the heart of a bachelorette.

"I am honored to be a part of 'Drop Dead' Diva this season," Jake told the mag, "[I] cannot wait to meet the cast and crew."

According to "Diva" executive producer Josh Berman, Jake was a natural fit for the role.

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

He will reportedly start shooting his scenes on June 18 and his episode, "Good Grief," will air on August 22.
