MISS CONGENIALITY 2 ARMED AND FABULOUS
Thanks to roles in a number of prominent films, REGINA KING's (Sam Fuller) distinguished talents have not gone unnoticed by Hollywood. The skilled actress was most recently seen in Ray, starring opposite Jamie Foxx.
King is currently working on the animated series Boondocks, where she will lend her voice to Riley. Boondocks will premiere next fall on the Cartoon Network during the successful "Adult Swimâ€ť late-night block.
She also recently appeared in A Cinderella Story, opposite Hilary Duff, and opposite Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde, the hotly anticipated sequel to the 2000 hit Legally Blonde. Last year, she 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, Boyz 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, as in the hit film Friday with Ice Cube and in A Thin Line Between Love and Hate, opposite Martin Lawrence.
But 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.
King lives in Los Angeles with her husband Ian and her nine-year-old son, Ian Jr.
