Anderson was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota to Stuart Jay Anderson and Jocelyn Rhae Carter, and has Scottish, Swedish, Norwegian and Mohawk Native American ancestry. He grew up in Roseville, Minnesota and attended Ohio University and St. Cloud State University.

He started his acting career appearing on General Hospital as Dr. Jeff Webber from 1976 to 1981 . He also starred as Adam in the television series Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (based very loosely on the movie of the same name).

In 1995 he starred in Legend, a comic series of only 12 episodes about a dime novel writer who against his will has to play the role of his own fictional character.

From 1997 to 2007, he starred as Colonel/General Jack O'Neill in Stargate SG-1, based on the movie Stargate starring Kurt Russell and James Spader. In season six, he chose to have a reduced role in the series due to his desire to spend more time with his daughter. His role was continually reduced until he left as a regular cast member at the end of season eight semi-retiring from acting for personal reasons , preferring instead to make a few guest appearances. He has appeared in two episodes of season ten of SG-1, and three episodes of season three of Stargate Atlantis.

He was presented with an award at the Air Force Association's 57th Annual Air Force Anniversary Dinner in Washington, D.C. on September 14, 2004 because of his role as star and executive producer of Stargate SG-1, a series which has portrayed the Air Force in a positive light since it first premiered. It was presented by the then-Air Force Chief-of-Staff, General John P. Jumper. The last recipient of the award was James Stewart in 1987. At the same dinner, Anderson was made an honorary Brigadier General.

He also appears in the 1997 PC game Fallout as the voice of Killian Darkwater, who was the clever head of the city made entirely of post-nuclear junk (Junktown).

Anderson has never married. He has a daughter named Wylie Quinn Annarose who was born in 1998 by his ex-partner, Apryl Prose. He has also dated Teri Hatcher, Sela Ward, Lara Flynn Boyle, and the famous German ice-skater Katarina Witt.
