Ellen: Taye Diggs Scaring People
Taye Diggs said he loves scaring people and he tried scaring Ellen by yelling and waving her arms. It didn’t work, but he said it gets most people. Then Ellen did it to him and he got scared. Ellen said she was doing it to show him it doesn’t work on people, but it actually worked.

Ellen: Taye Diggs Magic Mike & Scare
Taye Diggs is rumored to be in the new Magic Mike movie. “I don’t know why there weren’t no black people in the first one,” Taye Diggs joked. While Taye Diggs was talking, a man came out in a Magic Mike costume and scared him. Taye Diggs immediately jumped out of his chair and held his coffee mug like a weapon. This was a good reflex, but I was really hoping to hear “Heavens To Betsy.”
Anyway, Taye Diggs said he wasn’t sure whether he would be in the new Magic Mike, but he really hopes he will. He also said that Twitch should be in it, too. Twitch said he was ready.
