Kathie Lee & Hoda: Taye Diggs “Murder in the First”
Taye Diggs sat down with Kathie Lee and Hoda to talk about his new TNT series Murder in the First. He plays a detective who solves crimes, which is a bit different than the sweet, loving roles we’re used to seeing him in.
He said “it’s great to flex those acting muscles and play something a little different.” He said the show is different than other crime shows in that the case is solved through the season, which is 10 episodes. He said each episode is great within itself, but it helps if you know what’s going on so you may want to watch it from the beginning.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Taye Diggs “How Stella Got Her Groove Back” + Vine Video
Taye explained that he started in career in the theater, but has branched out quite a bit. He starred in the movie How Stella Got Her Groove Back and said lately he’s just been taking off his shirt and smiling, showing off his white teeth, so it’s good to show a different side of himself.
He said the good thing about the show Murder in the First is that because it’s only 10 episodes, he’s hoping to have some time off to do something else as well. That “something else” includes spending time with his four-and-a-half year old son.
They recently did a Kellogg’s commercial together and Kathie Lee and Hoda played a hilarious Vine video Taye created that shows him getting slapped by his little boy. He said he loves spending time with his son doing things like going to the park or getting ice cream. He said he truly loves being a dad.
