Taye Diggs is bringing work home with him ... or the reverse, more accurately. The Private Practice star's real-life wife, Tony winner Idina Menzel, will guest star later this season!
Over the course of multiple episodes, Menzel will play the mother of a patient tended to by Pete (Tim Daly). Pete's special "bedside manner" may lead to attraction between him and Menzel's character. No word on whether her character and Diggs' Sam Bennett will share any scenes.
Menzel - who met the Private Practice star while performing Rent on Broadway way back in 1995 - last appeared on TV in 2005's Kevin Hill, which starred - wait for it - Taye Diggs.
