Bio

Taye Diggs is an American actor best known for his leading roles in the television series Kevin Hill (2004-2005), Day Break (2006-2007) and Private Practice, from 2007-2013.

After appearing in the long-running soapie Guilding Light in 1997, Diggs first made an impression on TV audiences with a 10-episode recurring role in Ally McBeal, playing super-smooth lawyer Jackson Dupre in the fourth season of the show.

He has subsequently had the lead role in two series that were cancelled after one season: legal drama Kevin Hill and action thriller series Day Break, in 2006/7.

He also appeared in four episodes of the final season of Will & Grace, playing Will's boyfriend, James.

Diggs has made guest appearances on New York Undercover, Law & Order, 101 Dalmatians: The Series, and The West Wing (two episodes).

Movies he has appeared in include How Stella Got Her Groove Back (1998); Go (1999); House on Haunted Hill (1999); The Way of the Gun (2000); Brown Sugar (2002); Equilibrium (2002); Chicago (2002); Drum (2004); Rent (2005); and 30 Days (2006).

In the 2004 film Drum, Diggs played South African journalist Henry Nxumalo who worked for Drum magazine in Sophiatown in the 1950s.

In February 2007 it was announced that Diggs had been cast in the pilot episode of a Grey's Anatomy spin-off series, with Kate Walsh. The pilot aired as a two-hour special episode of Grey's Anatomy in the US in May and subsequently became Private Practice.

Diggs was called "Scottaye" by friends, then shortened his name to "Taye".

In 2003, Diggs was on Punk'd after being tricked by Ashton Kutcher, while getting a "check-up" at a Punk'd-operated doctor's office.

In 2014 he had a starring role as Inspector Terry English, an SFPD homicide detective coping with the death of his terminally ill wife, in the crime drama television series Murder in the First.
