American film and television actor Anthony Montgomery was born on June 2, 1971 in Indianapolis, Indiana. The grandson of jazz musician Wes Montgomery, he graduated from Ball State University with a degree in performance theater and drama. After graduation, he decided to do stand-up comedy for a while, and later moved to California. Anthony T. Montgomery began developing his career in 1998, taking on a role in the direct-to-video production, ESP: Extra Sexual Perception. He next got a small part on Hard Rain, and then began to obtain bit roles on hit television shows. He was seen on Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction, then as Seaman Hendrix on the JAG episode “Dungaree Justice,” and also as a waiter on Stark Raving Mad.
In 2000, Montgomery received his first starring role. This was in the horror-spoof Leprechaun: In the Hood, where he was cast as Postmaster P. He then got a small role in the two-part Frasier episode, “Something Borrowed, Someone Blue,” and on Charmed’s “The Honeymoon’s Over.” During that time, he also played a recurring character on the series Popular.
The next year marked a big change in Montgomery’s career. He was chosen to play Ensign Travis Mayweather on the hit science fiction series Star Trek: Enterprise. At that time, he also appeared on shows like Half & Half, Player$, and Boomtown.
In 2004, he headed for the Los Angeles theater scene and produced his own show – Dutchman by poet and critic LeRoi Jones. Montgomery then returned to his stand-up comedy routines, while also going back to Indiana to star in theatrical fundraisers for charity.
Adding to his bio he is now a comic book creator with his new graphic novel Miles Away.
