All American Spoilers – Taye Diggs Exits All American

Why did Taye Diggs leave All American?  Well, contrary to some of the rumors on the internet, the fan fave was not canned by The CW and actually is the one who pulled the plug on his tenure on the hit show.

In a recent interview with TV Line, Diggs dished, “I was having a great time. It was just a feeling that I got [that I was ready to leave], and I just honored that feeling. It was maybe mid-fourth season. I don’t even remember, to be honest, because the showrunner [Nkechi Okoro Carroll] and myself are close. We’d been keeping in contact, so she had known, and we’d been talking. And we decided how to go about it, and storylines and whatnot, so it was all above board, and everyone was in the know.”  

While it is clear Taye was ready to move on from All American, and we know fans absolutely wouldn’t have accepted a recast for Billy Baker, that doesn’t make the star’s exit any more bearable.  And, it will definitely not be the same without Taye Diggs on the canvas any more.
