Bio

Anthony Anderson is an American comedian and actor best known for his roles in the feature films Romeo Must Die, Big Momma's House and Me, Myself & Irene, all of which debuted in 2000.

Anderson also starred as Gary, a hilarious and doting stay-at-home dad of four, in the television sitcom Guys with Kids.

Anderson has appeared in over 20 films, and his performance on Law & Order earned him four consecutive NAACP Image Award nominations, including for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series for the 2010 season.

Prior to launching his acting career, Anderson grew up in Los Angeles and attended the High School for the Performing Arts, where he earned first place in the NAACP's ACTSO Awards with his performance of a classic monologue from The Great White Hope.

That performance, along with his dedication to his craft, earned him an arts scholarship to Howard University.

He first gained attention as one of Jim Carrey's sons in Me, Myself, & Irene. Over the years, Anderson has displayed his bountiful talent in Transformers, directed by Michael Bay, as well as in Martin Scorsese's Oscar-winning feature, The Departed, alongside a stellar cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon and Jack Nicholson.

Additional feature films include Scary Movie 3, Barbershop, Kangaroo Jack, Exit Wounds, Cradle 2 the Grave, Two Can Play That Game and Malibu's Most Wanted.

He starred opposite Eddie Griffin and Michael Imperioli in My Baby's Daddy, alongside Frankie Muniz in Agent Cody Banks 2, and had a cameo in Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle.

Anderson brought his talent and humour to the small screen in his own sitcom, All About the Andersons, which was loosely based on his life. He appeared in the police drama television series, The Shield, opposite Michael Chiklis and Glenn Close. Before joining Law & Order, Anderson starred in the New Orleans-based drama K-Ville.

He also appeared in the Sundance film Goats and The Big Year, starring Jack Black, Owen Wilson and Steve Martin, directed by David Frankel; and in the independent film Hot Bot, written and directed by the Polish Brothers.

Anderson currently lives in Los Angeles. He is married to his college sweetheart and they have two children.
