Yes ladies and gentlemen….I spent a glorious afternoon, on set with the delicious Morris Chestnut and Taye Diggs! Our boy Taye is joining the cast of one of our favorite shows on FOX, Rosewood! He will be playing a doctor who just happens to be the best friend of Morris Chestnut’s character. Rosewood calls on him for help with a case and let’s just say, Taye ends up stealing his girl….Nice!
Our two guys were shooting scenes in Long Beach, CA, when I caught up with them to ask them about the show and a few other interesting issues, like…why do you always share women? What is the plot for the Best Man part 3 and have you started shooting? Would Taye let Morris be his best man if he weds his current girlfriend? Which one of you is the better entertainer? And what is your phone number? O.K. Maybe not the last question. But, a girl can dream!
How did you end up joining the cast of Rosewood?
“I was at home watching Fox, something and I was like, let me check out this show because my boy was on it. And it was really, really cool! Andf then, I told my agents, if there’s any tv offers out there, let me know, I ain’t got nothing to do. Really! And then a call came in and I was like, I want to work with Morris! And they worked it out. Cause it’s always good to work with old friends because there’s a chemistry there. And the show is cool! It was unlike anything I’ve ever seen. “
“I didn’t know anybody else that I wanted for the role other than Taye. No, I’m serious! He brings a lot to the table. We moved mountains to make it work and I’m glad he’s here.”
From The Best Man and Brown Sugar, to The Perfect Guy, Murder in the First and Rosewood, Morris and Taye have shared several beautiful co-stars. Sanaa Lathan and Nicole Ari Parker to name a few. So, why does this keep happening gentlemen?
“It happens. Well, I don’t know? Maybe it’s a reflection of life?”
“I hope not! Stay away from my girlfriend!”
Have you began filming The Best Man part 3?
“We want to do the movie. It’s just a matter of putting the schedules together. It’s been great for all of us involved. We all continued to work from the movie. And they all have been, I can say modestly, successful. It would make sense to do another movie.”
Rosewood airs every Wednesday night at 8pm on FOX, right before Empire! Check out my first set visit on Rosewood here for a glimpse inside Morris’s bedroom…in case you missed it!
