Anthony D. Montgomery (born June 2, 1971 in Indianapolis, Indiana) is an American film and television actor, as well as graphic novelist. He is best known for his portrayal of Ensign Travis Mayweather on the UPN science fiction television series Star Trek: Enterprise (the fifth live-action series in the Star Trek franchise). Montgomery is the grandson of jazz musician Wes Montgomery. He graduated from Ball State University with a degree in performance theater and drama. Montgomery did stand-up comedy briefly after graduation, before moving to California.
Sometimes credited as "A.T. Montgomery", his first starring role was in the horror-spoof Leprechaun: In the Hood (2000) for which he also contributed writing and vocals for several songs. He had a recurring role on the television series Popular before being cast in Star Trek: Enterprise in 2001. In 2004, he returned to the stage in Los Angeles, producing the show Dutchman by LeRoi Jones, as well as returning to stand-up comedy. In the summer of 2005, he returned to Indiana to star in theatrical fundraisers for charity.
Montgomery starred in the film I'm Through with White Girls (The Inevitable Undoing of Jay Brooks) in 2007.
In January 2009, Montgomery appeared in an episode of the Fox series House. In 2013, he appeared briefly as a dud romantic-interest in the show Baby Daddy (season 2, ep. 1), playing a handsome but boring drycleaner the show's (young) grandmother was interested in. In 2013 he also produced and starred in the independent film Chariot, about seven amnesiac strangers who awake on an airliner mid-flight.
Montgomery has produced one CD of his own music, What You Know About..., featuring four songs about Star Trek themes. He is a frequent guest at Star Trek conventions. Montgomery is a keen martial arts student, and a practitioner of Hapkido. He has also studied Koga Ryu Ninjutsu. In April 2007 Anthony Montgomery signed with the Germany-based AGR Television Records. His (Hip-Hop) debut-album, titled A.T., was released in November 2008.
In 2013, Montgomery created Miles Away, a hoped-to-be media franchise, about a teenager with special powers who battles aliens. A graphic novel was published in June 2013, and nominated for two Glyph Awards.
