ABC’s ‘Better Off Ted‘ is bringing out the big guns – that is, Taye Diggs‘ considerable biceps – for its second season premiere.

What finds the handsome and talented (and handsome) ‘Private Practice‘ star inhabiting the wacky world of Veridian Dynamics?

In the December 8 opener, Veridian “encourages” its staff to date coworkers who are their perfect genetic match – as a means to possibly save money on health insurance down the road. The DNA of Diggs’ character, Greg, determines him to be “the one” for Linda (played by Andrea Anders).

Ted meanwhile is led to dip his toe back into the office dating pool with guest star Virginia Williams (‘Monarch Cove’).

Diggs’ drop-by can likely be credited to ‘Ted’ himself, Jay Harrington. The two gents have been friends ever since they studied drama together at Syracuse University. Prior to ‘Ted’s’ debut, Harrington enjoyed a run on ‘Private Practice’ as a love interest for Kate Walsh’s Addison.
