Private Practice: Taye Diggs Dishes More Crossovers!

Taye Diggs - the actor behind Sam Bennett, conversed with TV Guide and dishes on more crossovers between Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice. He also talked about the possibility of getting Sam and Addison's relationship to the next level and more!

About Sam and Naomi's relationship...

Diggs: I think the writers have done a really great job of portraying an accurate view of a relationship. These guys have been together for a really long time. They don't know what their relationship is truly outside the one they've had forever. I love the fact that they're letting these two characters breathe a little bit. I don't think it would be crazy if they got back together. It's fun to explore Sam single, though.

About Sam and Addison getting together...

Diggs: I think that makes for good television. If Naomi ever found out, I think the crap would definitely hit the fan and I think that's always fun to watch on the boob tube. Knowing Shonda Rhimes, I think they're going to drag this out for as long as possible and keep us waiting. I know that they're treating this relationship very tenderly because the friendship between Addison and Naomi is in a tenuous place.

About his thoughts on whether he wants Sam to get together with Naomi or Addison...

Diggs: I think it would be fun to see what happens with Addison. I can't imagine they would end up together in the long run, but it would be interesting to see how it affects the rest of the practice and, of course, Naomi. From the character's perspective, I feel like Naomi has done Sam wrong one too many times. I'm a little spiteful, so I wouldn't mind if Naomi found out because I think she deserves it.

About plans for more crossovers, Sam and Bailey's chemistry...

Diggs: Chandra Wilson is an amazing actress to work with. Whenever we get together we have a lot of fun. I know that they are planning another crossover. When? I don't know, but I have heard the rumblings. I don't know what characters, but they definitely want to use that and play that card soon.


About what makes Private Practice stand on its own...

Diggs: I'm very fortunate to work with some really amazing actors that I respect and look up to. I think that has a lot to do with it. I think the writing is getting better and better. We have the luxury of having time to breathe and delve into and flesh out our characters. That and the crazy element of luck. It's just the right time and the right kind of climate. People are digging it and I hope that they continue to.
