Taye Diggs was recently cast as the lead role in Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway, which makes him the first Black man to star in the role. TMZ caught up with him to chat about how he prepared for the role and he had a dry, but also amusing response.

When asked how he was prepping, he joked about having been a drag queen in high school, a male prostitution phase, and also being involved in “ass play,” before confirming that he was joking. Because y’all know people would have taken that and ran with it!

However, he ended the interview with, “I have a flaming homosexual inside me, and I’m excited to let it out.”

 

Watch:

Talk about being secure with one’s self! Not many cis men would even joke about that.
