85 NORTH FOUNDER. ACTOR. PRODUCER.
Anthony Sneed is an actor/producer who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Born & raised in New Jersey, Anthony moved to New York in 2004 to pursue a career in entertainment. After working as a support tour manager with Muse, Against Me!, and 311 among others, Anthony auditioned for the lead in Frank Henenlotter’s 2008 film “Bad Biology.” Deemed too “overweight” for the drug-addicted, sexually demanding role of Glenn “Batz” Batton, Anthony took on a month-long regiment of running five miles a day and changing his diet, resulting in a dramatic weight loss of 30 pounds in under 30 days. His determination left a huge impression on director Henenlotter who, initially not recognizing Anthony at final call backs, gave him the lead.
After the filming of “Bad Biology,” Anthony enrolled for formal actor training at the Atlantic Theater and has been working under the tutelage of famed acting teacher JoAnna Beckson. Currently, he is studying improvisation at the Upright Citizens Brigade & Magnet Theatre's.
Anthony has just completed writing, acting, and producing the feature length, super 16mm film “Chasing Banksy” directed by Frank Henenlotter and produced by Gabe Bartalos. They are currently following up with a new feature length documentary on cult artist Mike Diana. Anthony's solo show "The Buffalo" will be performed as part of the 2015 New York International Fringe Festival in August.
