LEGALLY BLONDE 2
REGINA KING (Grace Rossiter) most recently appeared in the hit comedy Daddy Day Care, starring Eddie Murphy. She recently joined the cast of the biopic Unchain My Heart: The Ray Charles Story, where she will star opposite Jamie Foxx. In the film, King portrays Margie Hendricks, Charles' outrageous mistress.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, King made her television debut on the hit sitcom 227. After five seasons, King made the leap to the silver screen with a role in John Singleton's powerful directorial debut, Boys N the Hood. She would soon collaborate with Singleton again in Poetic Justice and Higher Learning. King has always been consistent in showing her dynamic range, bouncing effortlessly from dramatic material to comedic performances, like in the hit film Friday with Ice Cube and in A Thin Line Between Love and Hate, opposite Martin Lawrence.
If there was a definite turning point in her career, it came in 1997 with her memorable role as Cuba Gooding Jr.'s wife Marci in the blockbuster film Jerry Maguire. This led to starring roles in How Stella Got Her Groove Back with Angela Bassett, the hit action thriller Enemy of the State opposite Will Smith, the family adventure Mighty Joe Young with Charlize Theron, and the comedy Down to Earth opposite Chris Rock.
King also found her way back to the small screen in 2000 with a role in HBO's acclaimed telefilm If These Walls Could Talk 2 and in the 2002 NBC comedy, Leap of Faith.
