From Broadway’s “Rent” to the silver screen’s “How Stella Got Her Groove Back” to TV’s “Private Practice,” actor Scott Leo “Taye” Diggs has entertained and strutted his way into the hearts of viewers.
Those hearts broke a little with the news last year of his separation from Idina Menzel, his wife of 10 years. They have one son.
Taye is an abreviation of Scottaye, which is what friends called him. The 43-year-old is now starring in TNT’s original series “Murder in the First,” which premiered Monday at 10 p.m.
Whether it was overconfidence or cockiness, I knew this is what I was going to be doing for the rest of my life. I got lucky, I suppose.
