Taye Diggs

Actor Taye Diggs was born as Scott Leo Diggs on January 2, 1972, in Newark, New Jersey. The eldest of five children, he grew up in Rochester, New York. Diggs may be known for his hunky, charming roles, but he started out as a less-than-suave kid. "I was a large geek," Diggs explained to Ebony magazine in 2000. "I had nothing. I was everybody's best friend, but none of the ladies would look at me for a second." [+]
