NBC has a new series in development based on the 1960’s Playboy clubs.  The show is aptly named, “Playboy” and on March 4, 2011 Deadline reported that actor Jeff Hephner has been cast in a lead role.  Jeff Hephner won’t be playing Hugh Heffner, but rater Nick Dalton who has been described at the ultimate playboy.  Dalton is a Chicago attorney who is also a keyholder in one of the alluring Playboy Clubs.  Dalton is connected to the mafia and has a way about him where he makes problems disappear.

Some of the women cast to play Playboy bunnies include Amber Heard, Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Naturi Naughton.  Television viewers may be familiar with Jeff Hephner from his roles as Matt Ramsey on The O.C. and Red Raymond on the CW series Hellcats.

Deadline reports that Jeff Hephner went through a ‘rigorous’ auditioning process to get the part.  We’re not sure if his last name was ultimately a deciding factor.  Others featured to appear in the series include Leah Renee, David Krumholtz and Wes Ramsey.
