Dominick DeLuise (born August 1, 1933 in Brooklyn, New York) is an American actor of Italian extraction, who almost always appears in comedic parts. He often co-stars with Burt Reynolds. He starred in the film Cannonball Run and was the host of the show Candid Camera from 1991 to 1992. His first acting credit was as a regular in the television show The Entertainers in 1964. He is probably best known, however, as a regular in Mel Brooks' films. Brooks' late wife, actress Anne Bancroft directed Dom in Fatso (1980).

He has three sons, Peter, Michael, and David, all of whom are actors. Dom, his sons and his wife, actress Carol (to whom he has been married since 1965), occasionally appear in each others' projects.

He is sometimes credited as Dom De Luise, Dom Deluise, or Dom De Luises.
