In 5 years, Anthony has released an EP (The Freedom EP), an album (The Good & The Bad), appeared on television including "Younger," "Will & Grace" and Spike Lee's "She's Gotta Have It", emerged onto the big screen in 7 films (with 4 forthcoming including this Friday's Disney+ premiere of Hamilton) including 2018's Lady Gaga/Bradley Cooper A Star is Born.
Broadway fans will be keeping an eye out for his upcoming film role starring as Usnavi in Lin-Manuel Miranda's movie musical version of In The Heights due out next summer. He had recently played the role at Washington D.C.'s Kennedy Center in 2018.
