Anthony Robert Grasso, an Italian-American actor, has been described as having the spirit of a soldier and the heart of a poet.
Raised in NY, in a two-family house of Italians and Jews, Anthony was probably the only Italian growing up celebrating both Easter and Passover. This experience has given him a strong sense of family values with a mix of moxie and passion.
Anthony began his artistic journey back in elementary school with achievements in both Fine Arts as well as local theatre.
After receiving a BFA from School of Visual Arts, he went on to pursue acting exclusively. He moved to New York City to train at The Actors Studio, Neighborhood Playhouse, and The British Academy in Oxford, England. With over 25 years of professional experience as an actor he has starred in numerous films including Gun Hill Road (Sundance Entree), M. Night Shamalan’s AMEX campaign This is My Life, Columbia Picture Stepmom with Susan Sarandon, psychological feature Billy’s Cult and The Pigeon Egg Strategy (shot in Hong Kong, Sundance Entree) and recently a pilot competition entitled Back To One for NBC..
Some of his Television credits include: ABC's Daytime, One Life to Live & All My Children (recurring), Primetime The Black Donnelly's, Sex & the City, NYPD Blue and Law & Order (5 episodes). His recent Law & Order appearance was the final season costarring with Jeremy Sisto and Anthony Anderson.
He currently lives in NY with his wife and actress Diane Harrington, and their daughter.
