Leoni is best known for her role on the television series The Naked Truth (1995–98 ). A college dropout, she got her start in acting when a friend dared her to show up at a casting call at a local mall. She walked away with her first acting job, although the show was cancelled, and it wasn't long before she appeared on the big screen in Switch (1991) and A League of Their Own (1992). Her first television appearance was in the mid '90s on a Fox sitcom called Flying Blind, and in 1995 she appeared on The Naked Truth, first on ABC, then on NBC. Other film credits include Deep Impact (1998), The Family Man (2000), Jurassic Park III (2001), Spanglish (2004), and Fun With Dick and Jane (2005). She is married to David Duchovny of The X-Files fame.
