To begin with, Anthony was raised by his mother Mary Lee Rapp, who worked as a nurse, as his parents divorced when the boy was two years old. He was educated at Joliet West High School in the small town of Joliet, with his brother Adam, who is a novelist and filmmaker.

Concerning his professional career, he first appeared on Broadway at the age of 10 in “The Little Prince and the Aviator”, based on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s “Little Prince”, but it was closed before full release. Then Anthony was cast in the musical “Precious Sons” (1986) for which he won and Outer Critics Circle Award. In 1987, Rapp appeared in the movie “Adventures in Babysitting directed” by Chris Columbus, but really rose to fame after he played the main in the coming of age comedy film “Dazed and Confused” (1993) by Richard Linklater, which was included on the list of the 10 best films of all time by Quentin Tarantino. His net worth was now well set.

In the new millennium, Anthony was in the main cast of the comedy film “Road Trip” (2000) by Todd Phillips, and other notable roles include Bender in the biographical drama film “A Beautiful Mind” (2001) directed by Ron Howard, which film grossed $313 million at the box office and won four Oscars. From 2014 to 2015, he starred in the musical “If / Then” in the role of Lucas, winning the Broadway.com Audience Award for the role. In addition, he has guest starred in a number of TV series including “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” (2012), “Psych” (2013), “Stop the Bleeding” (2015) and others. Currently, he is a regular cast member of the series “Star Trek: Discovery” (2017 – present).

In addition to being an actor, Rapp released the solo album “Look Around” (2000), and in 2006 published his memoir “Without You: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and the Musical Rent”, his mother’s struggle against cancer and his own struggle to find himself; later, the book was turned into a musical, and the CD of the same name was released in 2012.
