Daveed Diggs might be best known for his dual theater role as Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson in the hip-hop musical Hamilton, but outside his involvement on Hamilton, he’s been on several big television shows. A graduate of Brown University in theater, Diggs originally became a substitute teacher upon graduating. Because of his background in singing, songwriting, rapping, and acting, he met Lin-Manuel Miranda and was intrigued by Miranda’s developing project: Hamilton. Diggs then originated the role on Off-Broadway, then moved with the show to Broadway in 2015. He won a Tony Award for his role, and a Grammy Award with the Hamilton cast for the musical’s soundtrack.
From Hamilton to Black-ish, these are Daveed Diggs’ best performances.Read MoreMovieWeb – Feed
