Alexandra Wentworth

Alexandra Wentworth is the co-creator, star and co-executive producer of Head Case. Currently an on-going contributor on Oprah's Fridays Live, Wentworth was the host of 2003's Living it Up! with Ali & Jack. Having made a name for herself as a regular on two seasons of In Living Color, Ali's dead-on impersonations of Cher, Cindy Crawford and Sharon Stone quickly became trademarks of the show. She followed up her stint on In Living Color with a starring role in the Fox series, Hardball, and appeared as guest host for two episodes of Later. In an unprecedented move to develop a recurring role around a performer, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno featured Ali on a road trip across the country in a $7 car in the program's sweeps comedy piece. Since then, she's been invited back numerous times as a regular guest. Her TV credits also include the memorable role as Jerry Seinfeld's girlfriend, Schmoopie, in the series' classic Soup Nazi episode.

Ali has appeared in movies such as Twentieth Century Fox feature Office Space, and starred in The Wonderful World of Disney's remake of the classic film, The Love Bug. She also starred in the independent film Live Virgin, as well as the Michael Moore/CBS television pilot, Better Days. Her other movie credits include Trial & Error, Jerry Maguire, Daddy, Big Packages and The Real Blonde.

Also an author, Ali's first book was published by Warner Books entitled The WASP Cookbook, the book is a collection of 90 recipes (including 11 cocktails). "The WASP Cookbook details some of my best WASP family recipes, spiced up with a humorous commentary on life," Ali explains.

A Washington D.C. native, Ali is the daughter of a political journalist and former First Lady Nancy Reagan's social secretary. She honed the craft of acting at Bard College and New York University. Her stage credits include Sexual Perversity in Chicago and Fool For Love, as well as her one-woman show, Deaf, Blind and PMS, which she wrote, produced and directed. She is married to George Stephanopoulos and the couple has two young daughters.
