Personal Quote:

Glenn Close is a living icon. You look at the work, and I think it's wild, because she thinks some of her best work was in Dangerous Liaisons (1988) and that's what I believe, as well. See more »

Trivia:

Attended Hollywood High School Performing Arts Center at the same time as Benito Martinez, his future co-star on The Shield (2002). Anderson was a year behind Martinez. See more »
