Anthony went on to graduate from North Carolina School of Arts. As a student he played the character of Tupac Shakur in the play ‘Up Against the Wind’ in New York. He was fortunate enough to be cast in ‘Topdog/Underdog’ just after his graduation. He was also seen in ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’, ‘McReele’, ‘Talk’, ‘Drowning Crow’ and several more. He first performed in several Broadway and Off- Broadway plays, which started his net worth.

A year before officially acting in films, Anthony got a taste of working on-screen as he had some hands on experience of working in ‘8 Mile’, a movie by Eminem. In 2004 Mackie appeared in his first feature film which was named ‘Brother to Brother’ in which he played the role of ‘Perry’. The movie turned out to be a huge box office success He then chipped in to play the lead role of a sperm donator executive in the film ‘She Hate Me’ by ‘Spike Lee’. What added a spark to his career was the boxing drama that he acted in entitled ‘Million Dollar Baby’.All this undoubtedly adds to form an extremely large net worth.

Gradually as he started gaining recognition and his admirers started increasing, Anthony was being cast in up to six movies a year, including one of his best roles in ‘Freedomland’, that portrayed a racially charged kidnapping. He appeared in three back–to-back hits in 2008: ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’, ‘Jitney’ and ‘Fences’. He also played a supporting role in the film ‘The Hurt Locker’ which won six oscars, and of course all these castings helped increase his net worth.

Some of the other projects that Mackie has been a part of were ‘Night Catches Us’(2010), ‘The Adjustment Bureau’(2011), ‘Abraham Lincon: Vampire Hunter’(2012), also playing the character of Sam Wilson in ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ when he joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the year 2014. Overall, Anthony has appeared in almost 40 films, as well as on TV and the stage.

Being just an actor was never enough for Anthony; he is also a businessman. Mackie opened his own bar in New York City under the name ‘NoBar’.

In his personal life, Anthony Mackie married Sheletta Chapital in 2014, after a long courtship; the couple has two sons. On the negative side, in 2013 Anthony was arrested for allegedly driving while being under the influence of a drug named ‘Harlem’.

Living a life from rags to riches, Anthony has learned lessons at each stage of his life! A successful entrepreneur and a sought-after actor, hard work has undoubtedly been a travel partner for Anthony Mackie.

# Quote
1 [on making “Triple 9”] We had some local actors and some people from the streets. Some of them were from rival gangs, but nobody wanted to mess up the opportunity of being in a movie, so nothing happened. But we came close. It helped put us in the mind of being a cop and thinking about how easy things can explode in your face.
2 The great thing about it is, in Hollywood, certain people are very good at keeping their lives and who they are very private. I’ve never met anybody as down to earth and cool in Hollywood than Matt Damon.
3 I did this movie with Spike Lee called Sucker Free City (2004), and that would have to be my favourite role by far. It was just so much fun to work with Spike and shoot in San Francisco.
4 Acting is the only medium were people think they can just stand up and do it because they can say lines, but that is not so much the case. You have to study styles and techniques.
5 Do you want to be an actor, or do you want to be a celebrity? I made that decision when I went to Juilliard. I wanted to be an actor. So, if I get the opportunity to be an actor and do some cool, fun and interesting projects, I’m going to do that.
6 Everybody knows when you’ve got a role in a Spike Lee movie, you’re gonna blow up. But I happen to be the only person who’s had the lead in the two Spike Lee movies nobody saw.
7 I enjoy where I am and I don’t have a problem with being Steve Buscemi, Stanley Tucci, Don Cheadle, or Jeffrey Wright. They’re not the lead of every movie they’re in, but every time you see them they’re really good.
8 If everyone invested in the neighborhood they lived in, the United States would be a magical place.
9 If the acting don’t work out, I’ll have a future in construction.
10 If you look at the true essence of the Black Panthers, they were more of a community protection group.
11 If you want to buy a good movie, you’ll buy a good movie. If you don’t want to buy a good movie, you’ll buy a ‘Twilight’ movie.
12 Money always changes the game, when you let a dollar come between you and your friends, your cohorts.
13 Most of my movies are indies. The best scripts I can find are independent films. But I love big-budget movies, I love craft services!
14 The stage is my first love.
15 There are a lot of limitations and stigmas that are placed on young actors, specifically young black actors.
16 There was this rapper from New Orleans, Mystikal, who when I hear his music, I hear myself. Whenever I wanna get hyped, I put on Mystikal.
17 With all the movies I’ve done, I still get recognized from my episode of ‘Law & Order’ more than anything else. It never fails.
18 I went to school and made good grades and went to college. So I was afforded an opportunity through my parents’ hard work that most people don’t have.
19 So I feel like success is opportunity plus preparation, so work begets work, and as long as you’re prepared it’s going to continue to come your way.
20 The choices that we make through our lives, the people who intersect us on our path kind of change what our fated destiny is. So some of us are lucky enough for the choices that we make to keep us on our path.
21 Every time I get mad, I grab my hammer and make a bookshelf or something.
22 Instead of becoming an engineer like my brother, I moved to New York to be an actor.
23 Art-school girls are very nice.
24 I like movies. Movies have afforded me a modicum of luxuries. The thing about the movies is, if you’re bad in a movie, you’re bad forever.
25 I was raised with a sense of entrepreneurship – my father owned a roofing business, and I grew up with the idea that you never want someone telling you what you can and cannot do.
26 In New Orleans, where I’m from, the average household income, with two working parents, two kids, a dog and a little fence is $16,000 a year, so $15,000 for a movie sounds pretty good.
27 At Juilliard, I couldn’t afford to have fun. I went to school and stayed home.
28 I got a job as soon as I graduated from school. I always wanted to bartend because I love listening to people and how awful their lives are.
29 I just don’t understand how people can get so caught up in having their picture taken.
30 I would love to be a superhero.
31 I’m a firm believer in people who love what they do.
32 I’m not Josh Brolin or Ryan Gosling. They’re more noir than I.
33 “I’ve never seen anything like it before. It’s like the old days of James Cagney, when women would just swoon.” (on the effect that Matthew McConaughey, his co-star in We Are Marshall (2006), has on women)
34 “I was flabbergasted. Everybody knows when you’ve got a role in a Spike Lee movie, you’re gonna blow up. But I happen to be the only person who’s had the lead in the two Spike Lee movies nobody saw. It was a humbling experience, but Spike taught me more about how to fall on my face in this business than anybody else.” (on the attention he didn’t garner after being in Sucker Free City (2004) and She Hate Me (2004))
35 “You never see girls running after engineers.”(on why he chose acting over a career as an engineer)
