Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Cantone's further television work included a recurring role as hairdresser Terri Romano on the romantic drama "Men in Trees" (ABC, 2006-08), starring Anne Heche as successful New York writer transplanted to a small Alaskan town. He rejoined the girls from Manhattan and reprised his role as Anthony for the eagerly-anticipated feature film adaptation of "Sex and the City" (2008), a box-office smash that proved the franchise still had legs. Cantone then made back-to-back TV appearances in the crime-comedies "Killer Hair" (Lifetime, 2009) and "Hostile Makeover" (Lifetime, 2009), based on the Crime of Fashion book series by Ellen Byerrum. He returned to theaters for the still in-demand but disappointing sequel, "Sex and the City 2" (2010), followed by a turn as the director of the titular "Dirty Movie" (2011), yet another scatological farce from National Lampoon, co-starring Christopher Meloni and Robert Klein.
