*Taye Diggs is going back to his musical roots for his next gig.
The actor, currently starring in TNT’s “Murder in the First” and recurring on CBS’ “The Good Wife,” will join Topher Grace in the musical comedy “One Shot,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The script centers on a failed Broadway singer turned production manager (Grace) who, on opening night, must save the production by wrangling his eccentric cast and crew before they cause havoc. Diggs will play the role of Malcolm, a flamboyant actor.
Production will begin in December in Mexico City. Music video director Isaac Rentz will helm from a script by Gerry De Leon and Greg Lisi.
Diggs appeared in the stage version of Rent and the film version of Chicago. He will reprise his role in Universal’s “Best Man” franchise with “The Best Man Wedding,” set to be released in 2016.
