It's tough to nail down one place to begin enumerating Marc Anthony's talents. He's as complete a performer as Latin music has ever known, amassing accolades for his recordings and captivating fans with his passionate stage presence. And he's not simply a record-setting Latin artist and top-selling salsa singer of all time, according to Guinness World Records, and the first to sell out Madison Square Garden. He also took English-language pop by storm with his eponymous 1999 release, which went triple platinum and was fueled in large part by the hit single "I Need to Know." His success on the American charts wasn't a fluke, though. Anthony followed it with 2002's Mended, which debuted at number three on Billboard's Top 200. But topping music charts isn't this multiple Grammy winner's only trick in the bag. He's also forayed onto the big screen, landing memorable roles such as the crackhead in Scorsese's Bringing Out the Dead and starring as the lead cokehead in the Héctor Lavoe biopic, El Cantante. Anthony has even ventured into sports, recently buying a stake in the Miami Dolphins. And while we're on the subject, how 'bout them Fins?
