Taye Diggs's quotes

  • Growing up, I was a nerd. With actual taped eyeglasses.
  • But then all that died down and as far as casting was concerned it didn't really matter that I had been on Broadway.
  • It's a trip but it hasn't crossed over to the point where women are throwing their panties at me.
  • All my friends from my past would know me as Scott Diggs. Taye Diggs comes from Scott-taye. When I went to college I liked it because it was so different and I have an infatuation with nicknames.
  • I think I am less of a prankster and more of a jokester.
  • I love apple juice.
  • I keep all my clothes on in House on Haunted Hill, Mary Jane's Last Dance, and The Way of the Gun.
  • I jump at any chance to go back into theater.
  • I failed chemistry. I almost failed algebra.
  • I'm awful with directions, and I'm not very handy around the house.
  • I'm always up for going back to the stage.
  • I'm always singing and dancing and getting up in people's faces.
  • I'm a choreographer and I love watching 'The Bachelorette.'
  • I would love for film to go back to those days where you had to be able to do everything just to get by.
  • Not one role that I've played has been written specifically for me.

  • Live theater is my favorite of all the mediums that I have worked in, so I have every intention on coming back to Broadway.
  • I'm living my life and I found a woman who I love.
  • I'm going through a stage where the dumbest things make me bawl. I feel like I need to see a shrink.
  • The whole issue is that everyone would love to do theater, but it doesn't pay enough, so to do music theater on TV, that's the ultimate dream.
  • The only tough thing is admitting to my wife how much a certain article of clothing costs.
  • One of my favorite films is 'Pretty Woman.'
  • On the set I never know what day of the week it is.
  • The large ensemble cast and the fact that it was being shot in New York, combined with a lot of strong positive images as far as African Americans are concerned, really turned me on to The Best Man.
  • Like I went out to a predominantly black club last night and nobody said anything and I was wishing somebody would so that someone would dance with me.
