Sometimes credited as "A.T. Montgomery", his first starring role was in the horror-comedy 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 stand-up comedy.

Montgomery starred in the film I'm Through with White Girls 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.

In 2015, Montgomery joined the cast of the ABC daytime soap General Hospital playing Dr. Andre Maddox.[3]

His (Hip-Hop) debut-album, titled A.T., was released in November 2008. In the TV series Single Ladies that he had a recurring role in, a single he wrote and performed, entitled "Stimulation", was included for the music-heavy show's mood soundtrack for Episode 9. The single also featured rapper J. Naught-T.[5][6]
