TEA LEONI (Jenny Lerner) stars in "Deep Impact"
as an ambitious TV news segment producer who inadvertently stumbles
on the world's most devastating story.
Leoni was recently seen in Miramax's critically acclaimed comedy
"Flirting with Disaster," co-starring opposite Ben Stiller,
Patricia Arquette, Mary Tyler Moore and George Seagal.
Leoni is currently starring in the NBC comedy "The Naked
Truth." Prior to that, Leoni had starred as the flamboyant
and unpredictable "Alicia" in the Fox comedy series
"Flying Blind." She also starred in "The Counterfeit
Contessa," an original film for Fox Television, which co-starred
D.W. Moffett and Holland Taylor.
Born in New York City, Leoni became interested in acting at an
early age, influenced by her grandmother, a former Broadway actress.
Nicknamed Sarah Bernhardt because of her melodramatic tendencies,
Leoni didn't pursue her craft immediately. Instead, she studied
anthropology and psychology at Sarah Lawrence and then took time
off from school to travel; living in Tokyo, Italy and St. Croix.
Upon her return to New York, she went on her first audition.
Competing with thousands of actresses from all over the country,
she landed one of the coveted roles in "Angels '88,"
a "Charlie's Angels" spinoff. Having relocated to Los
Angeles for the series, Leoni began to study her craft while waiting
out her contract. She went on to appear in the feature films "Switch"
and "Indian Love Story," as well as roles in "A
League of Their Own," "Wyatt Earp" and 1995's hit
action comedy "Bad Boys."
