A CINDERELLA STORY
Thanks to roles in a number of prominent films, REGINA KING's (Rhonda) distinguished talents have not gone unnoticed by Hollywood. The skilled actress will next be seen in Unchain My Heart: The Ray Charles Story (opens October 29th) where she will star opposite Jamie Foxx. In the film, King portrays Margie Hendricks Charles' outrageous mistress. Additionally, King is currently in production on Miss Congeniality 2, opposite Sandra Bullock. The sequel finds Bullock reprising her role as FBI Special Agent Gracie Hart and King will play Samantha, a fellow FBI agent. The duo -- at odds with each other at first -- are partnered up and must head to Las Vegas on a new case.
King most recently appeared alongside Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde, the hotly anticipated sequel to the 2000 hit Legally Blonde. Last year, she also added Daddy Day Care to her impressive list of credits, starring opposite Eddie Murphy.
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, such as the hit film Friday with Ice Cube and 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 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.
She currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband Ian and her 8-year-old son, Ian Jr.
