All About The Andersons - If for some odd reason you don't remember any of the previously mentioned credits perhaps you remember when Anthony Anderson's very own hilarious but short-lived sitcom, All About the Andersons. Unfortunately, the show was canceled after just one season, but like everything else in his career, it was a stepping stone to the next thing. 

A New Man! - In 2012, Anderson made a drastic physical transformation by dropping over 50 pounds. He credits the weight loss to adhering to a more concious diet that included organic vegetables, fish and chicken. Additionally, he opted for long bike rides over the gym for exercise. Now Anderson is looking better than we've ever seen him before! Salute, brotha!(Photos from left: Kevin Winter/Getty Images, Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
