Anderson is perhaps most famous for his role as a priest on the television series Nothing Sacred, about a priest with self-doubts. He was nominated for a Golden Globe for this role. One of his first major film roles was as the brother of Richard Gere's character in the 1988 film Miles from Home. He also starred in the 1991 film Sleeping with the Enemy with Julia Roberts.

In 1993, Anderson created the role of Joe Gillis in the original London production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Sunset Boulevard opposite Patti LuPone who originated the role of Norma Desmond. Both Anderson and LuPone were subsequently fired from the production without warning, having been told that they would be reprising their roles in the original Broadway production of the show.

He also appeared in the movie Charlotte's Web as Mr. Arable. This was the second time he has worked with Julia Roberts, who voiced the role of Charlotte.

Anderson won the 1999 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Play and was nominated for a Tony Award for the revival of Death of a Salesman. In January 2008 he opened on Broadway in Come Back, Little Sheba. Since September, 2009, Kevin Anderson has starred as Andy Dufresne in "Shawshank Redemption" at the Wyndhams Theatre in London.

Personal life

Anderson is also a singer and drummer. He embarked on a cross-country motorcycle trip and was struck by a car in 1994; the accident put him out of work for a year. Because he suffered a broken leg and broken arm and other health complications (including a fat embolism), it took him a couple of years to rehabilitate; but he describes the years as one of the best times in his life because it forced him to look at his motives and his life. Anderson resides in Malibu, California.
