Anwan Glover Net Worth

Anwan Glover was bornon May 05, 1975, is Actor. Anwan "Big G" Glover was not bit by the acting bug. He was born with the acting gene. From his days in elementary school, Anwan has been in front of audiences acting, playing instruments, performing and modeling. He credits his love of film to time spent with his sister watching classic Black television show reruns and films-Sanford & Son; Good Times; Dolomite-any thing with Sidney Poitier, and Glover's all time favorite play, The Wiz, featuring Stephanie Mills.Big G's professional acting career took off in 2002 when a friend who had seen Anwan's picture in a print ad thought that Glover should audition for a casting call for the then new HBO series, The Wire. Fate would put Anwan in front of the Emmy Award Winning Casting Director Pat Moran who was so impressed with his audition that she immediately cast him the series. Glover's gritty role as the enforcer for hire, Slim Charles, became a pivotal recurring role until the series ended.Since then, G has been steadily honing his craft in both television and film. He can be seen in episodes of hit tv series like Treme; Law & Order SVU; Scream Queens, and more. But his performances on film are not to be ignored thru his unforgettable roles in movies like 12 Years A Slave as the character Cape; Bruce Brown's sequel movie Divided City; Dermaphoria; LUV; Dead Money; and more. Glover has also been featured in numerous documentaries. But look for him in the reoccurring role as Leon, the Diner Owner, in the greatly anticipated new cable series The Deuce featuring James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal as they team up with Executive Producer David Simon from The Wire.When he's not acting or on his Washington, DC radio show, you can find Big G performing as the lead mic for the wildly successful Go-Go Band, The Backyard Band, which he co-found in 1988.And as if all of this is not enough, Glover is pursuing to expand his career by stepping in to the director's chair with music videos under his belt and the YouTube web series, Transitions, where he also plays the role of Adonis Black.
