'The Voice' Champ Cast as Ray Charles on 'Playboy Club'


Javier Colon


Javier Colon is billed to appear as the legendary blues singer and perform 'Let the Good Times Roll' in the sixth episode of the new NBC series.

It does not take too long for Javier Colon to move from reality show to scripted series. The soulful crooner, who was crowned as the winner of "The Voice" last June, has landed a guest role on "The Playboy Club".

Colon is booked to channel legendary blues singer Ray Charles in the sixth episode of the new NBC series, which will premiere on Monday, September 19. The Connecticut-born singer/songwriter will also perform Charles' classic "Let the Good Times Roll" during his appearance, TVLine reports.

Previously, Colbie Caillat has been said to appear on "The Playboy Club" as "It's My Party" crooner Lesley Gore. Another real-life star who is set to portray a 1960s musician on the rookie show is Raphael Saadiq, who will be seen as the late King of Soul Sam Cooke.
