‘Ally’ Gets Her Groove Back

First Robert Downey Jr., now Taye Diggs.

Hunky actor Diggs (“How Stella Got Her Groove Back,” “The Best Man”) begins a six-episode guest-starring stint on “Ally McBeal” on Feb. 12, but the “Go” man hopes that he’ll be allowed to be more than just another pretty face (and body).

“I’m hoping they’ll let me be a little wild and crazy as opposed to ‘sit around and look cute,'” Diggs says in the Dec. 4 issue of People magazine.

Diggs, who played Angela Bassett’s much younger Jamaican lover Winston in “Stella,” says he doesn’t know any specifics about the TV role.

“I’ll be someone’s love interest, I’ll be singing and I’m a lawyer, but that’s all I know,” he says.

Gee, isn’t that every guest starring role on “Ally McBeal”?

Diggs‘ film credits include “The House on Haunted Hill” and “The Wood.” “Ally McBeal” airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
