Debi is an acclaimed actress who made her feature film debut in Martin Scorsese's "Goodfellas." A native New Yorker, she is best known for her outstanding portrayals of edgy, sharp-tongued characters in over 70 films, television shows and stage productions. Her extensive onscreen work includes films with legendary directors Woody Allen, Michael Mann, Oliver Stone and Joel Schumacher. She also starred in her own television sitcom "Temporarily Yours" and was known for her role as hard-charging publicist Shauna on the HBO series "Entourage," which earned her and the cast a Screen Actors Guild nomination for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series in 2004. She also appeared in the film version, which premiered in summer 2015. She will soon be seen in Woody Allen's upcoming film to be released in 2017, as well as "The Only Living Boy in New York," directed by Marc Webb, to be released in summer 2017.
She and her husband, Gabriele Corcos, created, direct, produce and host their hit Cooking Channel show, originally titled "Extra Virgin," inviting viewers into their Brooklyn home as they prepare the Tuscan foods they know so well. The show relaunched as "Extra Virgin Americana" in 2016, and Debi and Gabriele were honored with The James Beard Foundation Award this year for the category of Television Program in a Studio or Fixed Location. The couple also released their first cookbook, the New York Times bestseller Extra Virgin, with Clarkson/Potter in 2014.
Debi, along with her husband and two daughters, currently divide their time between their home in Brooklyn and a 14th-century house outside of Florence, Italy.
