Fresh off his stint on Broadway, in the title role in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” which is now closed, Taye Diggs, seemingly with some spare time, has joined the cast of Fox’s freshman crime/medical drama series “Rosewood,” which stars Morris Chestnut.
Diggs has booked a recurring role, playing a Dr. Mike Boyce, a famous infectious disease doctor who also happens to be the best friend of Chestnut’s Rosewood. In a somewhat similar set-up to what happens in “The Best Man,” their long-time friendship is tested when Rosewood’s “partner” – Jaina Lee Ortiz’s Detective Villa – gets between them, after Boyce is called in to consult on a case and heats things up a bit with her.
His first episode scheduled to air next week Wednesday, November 25.
As you can see in the photo above, and the preview clip below, Emayatzy Corinealdi is also going to be in that episode; there’s been no official announcement of her casting, so no word on whether it’s just a guest-starring role, or whether she’s also booked a recurring role on the series.
Nice to see all 2 of them together though. This should be a fun episode.
“Rosewood” airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Fox, right before “Empire.”
Fox has released a promo for the upcoming episode with Diggs and Corinealdi, which is embedded below:
