We can’t say enough about sexy rising star Anthony Mackie. The New Orleans-bred’s undeniable talent and sultry swag earns him the title of this week’s Clutch Crush.
This Julliard grad got his start as an understudy for Don Cheadle in Suzan Lori-Park’s Broadway play Topdog/Underdog. We remember Anthony’s first starring role in 8 Mile playing opposite Eminem as his rival Papa Doc. But Anthony’s most unforgettable role to date was in Spike Lee’s 2004 joint She Hate Me as an uber educated business man who impregnated lesbains for a rather large fee. The fellas watched for Kerry Washington and we surely watched for Anthony’s steamy scenes. Recently Mackie starred in the Oscar winning film The Hurt Locker winning an Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Actor. This 30-year hottie is on the rise, and we’ll be watching as his career goes to the next level. Word of the street is you can spot him dining out in local spots in Brooklyn’s Bed Stuy. Ummm…watch out there now Anthony!
