"Cut the check!"

Anthony Mackie (born September 23, 1978) is an American actor who made his debut in Eminem's 8 Mile. In 2014, he joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Sam Wilson / Falcon, making his first appearance in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

His films include:

He provides examples of:

  • The Big Easy: He is a very, very, very, vocally proud native of New Orleans.
  • Catch-Phrase: Going by the extra features of the Winter Soldier Blu-Ray, he's fond of saying "Cut the check!" (In the sense of "Good job, guys; we earned our pay today.")
  • Keet: Just watch him playing superhero charades.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Plays up a rivalry with Tom Holland, due to the younger actor stealing his Catch-Phrase on set of Civil War.
  • Token Minority: Mackie himself has joked that he often ends up playing the lone African American character in many of his films.
