Anthony Gaudioso and James Gaudioso (birth date November 29) are American identical twin actors, producers, and directors known for Medium (2007), The Ghost and The Whale (2017) and Duke (2019).
Born in Crystal Lake, Illinois and later raised in Long Island, the twins began a career in acting at an early age, appearing in mainstream commercials and off-Broadway shows. In 1997, they were discovered by Spike Lee during a national search of over twenty thousand New Yorkers to be featured in a string of commercials for Nike and Finish Line. In an effort to further pursue their interests, Anthony went on to receive a film degree from LIU Post while training under Stella Adler, Bill Howey and Ivana Chubbuck. During this time, James trained under Betsy Parrish, who is known for training award-winning actress Meryl Streep. In 2005, the twins were named Top 25 to watch in indie film by Vanity Fair in their annual Rising Star campaign where they were featured alongside Oscar nominee Catalina Sandino Moreno and Lucas Black.
