Anthony Carrigan (born January 2, 1983) is an American actor. He is known for playing Victor Zsasz in the FOX series Gotham and Tyler Davies in The Forgotten. He plays Chechen mobster NoHo Hank in the HBO series Barry, for which he was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series in 2019.

Carrigan has had alopecia areata, an autoimmune disease that causes hair loss, since he was a child.[1][2][3][4] He had mild symptoms growing up with only small manageable bald spots, but he started losing more hair in his 20s and has spoken of wearing makeup and fake eyebrows while filming The Forgotten.[5] He is now known for his complete lack of hair, eyebrows, and eyelashes, and has incorporated this into his career, often being typecast as television villains.[6]
