As a dynamic performer with incredible screen presence, actor Anthony Anderson made his career easily oscillating between comedies and dramas on both television and in feature films. Though he started out providing comic relief in a number of films early in his career, including "Life" (1999) and "Big Momma's House" (2000), Anderson quickly made his presence known as a powerful dramatic force with guest starring roles on gritty cop dramas like "NYPD Blue" (ABC, 1993-2005). After earning laughs as a bungling burglar in "Barbershop" (2002) and in his own short-lived sitcom, "All About the Andersons" (The WB, 2003-04), he had a career-defining role as the powerful and much-feared drug kingpin, Antwon Mitchell, on "The Shield" (FX, 2002-08). Giving perhaps his best performance to date, Anderson flung open the doors to a wider variety of roles that helped redirect a career that seemed destined for him to play second banana in cheap comedies. By the time he joined the cast as a homicide detective on "Law & Order" (NBC, 1990-2010), Anderson had more than proved himself as a capable dramatic performer. But his starring role as Los Angeles advertising executive Andre Johnson in the hit sitcom "Black-ish" (ABC 2014- ) reaffirmed his status as a sharp comic actor. While starring on "Black-ish," Anderson also hosted a prime-time reboot of the venerable TV game show "To Tell the Truth" (ABC 2016- ) and created a sideline career as host and producer of travel-themed series for Food Network.
