The new Grey’s spin-off seems to promise as much eye-candy as the original. Hottiehothothot Taye Diggs has signed on to the show! Yea! For those of you keeping score at home, that’s two Tony-winning actors in the Grey’s family. (Well, Rent won the Tony and he was in it, so I am counting that…)
Diggs to star opposite Walsh in Grey’s spin-off
Taye Diggs has been tapped to star in the Grey’s Anatomy spin-off currently in the works. No details are available on his character. Grey’s will set the stage for the spin-off, which will focus on Kate Walsh’s character, Dr. Addison Shepherd, via an expanded two-hour episode scheduled to air in May in which Dr. Shepherd will consider an exit from Seattle Grace. Grey’s writer and creator Shonda Rhimes is writing the episode and is expected to write the potential spin-off as well.
