Taye Diggs is headed to Miami with an M.D. degree.

The Private Practice alum will guest-star in multiple episodes of Fox’s medical procedural Rosewood, the network announced on Monday.

Diggs will play Dr. Mike Boyce, the best friend of Rosie (Morris Chestnut). The highly respected infectious disease doctor is recruited by Rosie to help him on a case. Dr. Boyce also draws romantic interest from Detective Villa (Jaina Lee Ortiz), which catches Rosie off-guard.

Diggs’ first appearance on Rosewood will air next month. The recurring role reunites Diggs and Chestnut, who starred together in The Best Man and The Best Man Holiday.

Diggs recently wrapped a run on Broadway as the lead in Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Season 2 of TNT’s Murder in the First, in which he stars, aired this summer. He also appeared in several episodes of The Good Wife last year.
