Fox’s Rosewood is enlisting Taye Diggs.
The Private Practice and Hedwig alum has been tapped for a recurring role on the freshman medical drama.
Diggs – who wrapped his run on Broadway’s Hedwig and the Angry Inch – will play Dr. Mike Boyce, a world-renowned infectious disease doctor based in Miami and the longtime best friend of Dr. Beaumont Rosewood (Morris Chestnut). Boyce is brought in to consult on a case and catches the eye of Detective Villa (Jaina Lee Ortiz), much to Rosewood’s surprise.
The role marks a reunion for Diggs with Chestnut after both starred in feature The Best Man, and its sequel, The Best Man Holiday.
Diggs will make his Rosewood debut in November.
