acclaimed comedian and actor, Anderson has appeared in over 20 films, and his performance on "Law & Order" earned him his second consecutive NAACP Image Award nomination for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series for the 2008 season. Before joining "Law & Order," Anderson starred in the New Orleans-based drama "K-Ville." Over the years, he has displayed his bountiful talent in the DreamWorks' blockbuster "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. Anderson also appeared in Paramount Pictures' critically acclaimed "Hustle & Flow" opposite Terrance Howard.

Anderson first gained attention as one of Jim Carrey's sons in "Me, Myself, and Irene," and has subsequently appeared in such films as "Scary Movie 3," "Barbershop," "Kangaroo Jack," "Exit Wounds," "Cradle 2 the Grave," "Two Can Play That Game," and "Malibu's Most Wanted." He also starred opposite Eddie Griffin and Michael Imperioli in "My Baby's Daddy," opposite Frankie Muniz in "Agent Cody Banks 2" and had a cameo in "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle."

Anderson brought his talent and humor to the small screen in his own WB sitcom "All About the Andersons" which was loosely based on his life. Anderson also appeared in the police-drama television series, "The Shield," opposite Michael Chiklis and Glenn Close. His character on that show, a vicious and charismatic drug lord, was a major departure from his more comedic performances.

Anderson grew up in Los Angeles. While pursuing his acting career, he continued his education by attending the High School for the Performing Arts, where he earned first place in the NAACP's ACTSO Awards with his performance of the classic monologue from "The Great White Hope." That performance, along with his dedication to his craft, earned him an arts scholarship to Howard University.



In 1996, Anthony Anderson landed his first professional job starring in the teen series "Hang Time." He then quickly landed guest-starring roles on other shows including "J.A.G" and "NYPD Blue." Producer David E. Kelley was so impressed with his talent that he wrote a two-episode arc especially for him on the hit series "Ally McBeal."

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