After gaining minor roles in movies including Annie Hall, D'Angelo had a string of hit movies in the late 1970s, appearing in Every Which Way But Loose, Hair, and Coal Miner's Daughter (she portrayed the singer Patsy Cline, and did all her own singing). Her biggest break came with Chevy Chase in the 1983 National Lampoon's Vacation. Her role as Ellen Griswold was reprised in three Vacation sequels from 1985 through 1997. In 1992, she had a guest appearance in the third season of The Simpsons as Lurleen Lumpkin, a beautiful, Southern country singer and waitress, in Colonel Homer, and is set to return as the same character in an episode in the nineteenth season.
She has a recurring role on Law & Order: SVU as defense attorney Rebecca Balthus.
In 2006, she starred in the independent cult classic Gamers: The Movie. She can now be seen on the hit HBO series Entourage, playing the role of the alpha-female Barbara "Babs" Miller.
