Anton was a big role for D'Anthony but he is probably most recognized for his unforgettable cameo as the Light Skinned Airport Security Guard in "Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay." After filming his first three major roles, he graduated from Texas State University and drove to Los Angeles with $300 in his pocket. Initially couch-surfing and living in his car he eventually saved up enough money to stay in weekly motels. D'Anthony was determined to make it. A few months after moving he signed with a prominent Hollywood talent agency and within no time he scored a role in "Easy A," opposite Emma Stone as a jock who has it out for her. From there he began booking guest starring roles on shows such as "CSI: NY," "NCIS," "House of Payne," MTV's "Awkward," and HBO's "Luck," opposite Dustin Hoffman. Most recently, he was featured in a Funny or Die short with Kylie Minogue, and has multiple projects in the works. In his free time, D enjoys working on his vintage car and shopping for antique furniture for his Silverlake Hills home built in the 1800's.
