Rising star Taye Diggs made his feature film debut starring opposite Angela Bassett in 20th Century Fox’s box-office hit “How Stella Got Her Groove Back” and since then has turned heads in every role he has chosen. 2000 and 2001 proved to be breakout years for the star who headlined in several major motion picture releases.


This past summer, Diggs completed production on “Malibu’s Most Wanted” Project with Jamie Kennedy, Blair Underwood, Ryan O’Neal, and Bo Derek. Diggs portrays an actor who is hired to “scare the white” into Jamie Kennedy’s character who is obsessed with the culture of south central Los Angeles.


Most recently, Diggs starred opposite Sanna Lathan, Queen Latifah, and Mos Def in Fox Searchlight’s romantic comedy “Brown Sugar.” The film reunited him with his “The Wood” director, Rick Famuyiwa, and he portrays a record executive at a hip-hop label who falls in love with a magazine editor he has known since childhood.


Diggs is also featured in the Miramax/Dimension Films’ futuristic thriller “Equilibrium,” directed by Kurt Wimmer ("The Thomas Crown Affair") and produced by Jan de Bont ("Speed") and Lucas Foster.
