Popular author, entertainer and motion picture star, Taye Diggs has starred in the Broadway production of Rent and such movies as How Stella Got Her Groove Back, The Best Man, House on Haunted Hill and The Wood.
In 1996, Diggs appeared on Broadway in the role of Benny, an opportunistic landlord, in Jonathan Larson’s groundbreaking musical Rent. The play won both a Tony Award and a Pulitzer Prize. It was later made into a 2005 film, in which Diggs reprised his role. The success of Rent helped advance Diggs’s career. Transitioning from theater to film, he appeared before mainstream audiences as Winston, the hunky love interest of Angela Bassett, in 1998’s How Stella Got Her Groove Back. More film roles soon followed, including in Go (1999) and The Best Man (1999).
Diggs also enjoyed success on the small screen. He had a recurring role on the hit legal series Ally McBeal in 2001. Three years later, Diggs starred in his own legal drama Kevin Hill. The show only lasted for one season, but he continued to work steadily on television. Diggs made appearances on shows such as Will & Grace before landing a leading role in Day Break, an action drama that debuted in 2006.
While Day Break failed to catch on with viewers, Diggs soon moved on to his most enduring TV role to date. He starred as Dr. Sam Bennett on Private Practice from 2007 to 2013. The show, which also featured Kate Walsh and Audra McDonald, was spun off from the hit medical drama Grey’s Anatomy.
In 2013, Diggs reunited with many of his The Best Man cast mates for the sequel The Best Man Holiday. The hit film also featured Nia Long, Terrence Howard, Regina Hall and Harold Perrineau. Diggs appeared in another romantic comedy, Baggage Claim, that same year
