ANTHONY ANDERSON (J.D.) is taking Hollywood by storm. He was recently nominated for a NAACP Image Award for his work in the battle-of-the-sexes comedy Two Can Play That Game, and over the past few months, blockbuster producers like Joel Silver and Jerry Bruckheimer have placed Anderson at the center of their tentpole films. He plays a lead role opposite Jet Li and DMX in Silver's next action film, Cradle to the Grave, which began shooting in March. Anderson also finished principal photography as the lead in Bruckheimer's upcoming action-comedy Down and Under, and comedy maestro Bob Simonds has tapped Anderson to executive produce a starring vehicle.

Raised near Los Angeles, Anderson is the son of a career film extra and her entrepreneur husband. As a toddler he accompanied his mother to several film sets. By the time he was four, he knew acting was his destiny. While attending the High School for the Performing Arts, Anthony earned first place in the NAACP's ACTSO Awards performing the classic monologue from The Great White Hope. His dedication and talent earned him a dramatic arts scholarship to Howard University.

In early 1996, Anderson landed his first gig as a series regular in NBC's long-running kids' series Hang Time. Anderson followed this success with guest star turns in prime time shows including J.A. G. and NYPD Blue. His breakout feature film roles include Life with Eddie Murphy, Big Momma ‘s House with Martin Lawrence, Me, Myself and Irene with Jim Carrey, and Romeo Must Die with Jet Li. He also starred in Kingdom Come and Exit Wounds. David E. Kelley was so impressed with Anderson that he tailor-made a two-episode arc for him on the hit series Ally MeBeal.
