Ch-ch-check it out (above) and tell us what YOU think!
That's right guys and gals, he's back!
For the first time in over a decade Taye Diggs will be returning to Broadway as the star in the Tony Award-winning hit Hedwig and the Angry Inch!
On July 19, the current star, Darren Criss, is set to exit the production at which point Diggs will take over headlining. He's officially signed on for a 12-week stint with the show, starring opposite Rebecca Naomi Jones and he'll start July 22, 2015!
The show revolves around a German emigrant, Hedwig, who is the victim of a botched sex-change operation, as she embarks on her journey to find love and stardom. The revival play — which originally opened as an off-Broadway production in 1998 — relaunched last year with Neil Patrick Harris as its star and ended up winning four Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical.
Since it launched, it's gone through quite a few actors playing the lead including:
Sometimes in order to go six inches forward you have to go five inches back.
And this January, Hedwig And The Angry Inch is taking it all the way back to the nub — er, the beginning!
John Cameron Mitchell!
Looks like this Hedwig has more than just one angry inch, if you catch our drift.
Michael C. Hall took a shirtless bow during the curtain call for Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Wednesday — and basically deserves a standing ovation for how lickable his abs are!
Michael took over the Hedwig duties from Girls star Andrew Rannells and is apparently doing a fantastical job!
Well, we're super excited for Michael! And super jealous of whoever gets to help him with his costume changes. Rawr!

If anyone had ANY doubts about Michael C. Hall being able to pull this off, they're DEFINITELY squashed now!
Well, Andrew Rannells is currently slaying in the Broadway show and it looks like the former Dexter star is going to as well!
The first promo pictures of the star in his makeup have been released and they're pretty darn BRILLIANT!
We can't WAIT to see him begin!
Michael is taking over the role on the 16th, as Andrew's last show is on the 12th!
Looks like they've drifted away from the typical blue nail polish that both Andrew and Neil rocked on the stage and replaced it with red for Michael!
Maybe he just really likes the color red after being surrounded by fake blood on Dexter all those years! LOLz.
What do YOU think? Are YOU excited for Michael to take over?

He's really gonna kill it in this performance! BA-DUM-CHA!
Michael C. Hall is set to make his way to a BIG Broadway show in October.
Which show? Oh, just Hedwig and the Angry Inch!
The Dexter star be playing Hedwig for a limited run, officially starting October 16th and ending on January 4th.
Most recently, Michael was on Broadway in the play The Realistic Joneses with Toni Collette, Tracy Letts, and Marisa Tomei, but this will be his first musical since 2002 when he was in Chicago.
Do you think he'll kill the crowd with his performances every night or butcher it majorly? LOLz!
Dexter jokes aside, we REALLY can't WAIT to see how he portrays Hedwig!
Oh, and let's hope we see lots and LOTS of shirtless pics! Yummy!
