THE ANT BULLY
REGINA KING (Kreela) has played many memorable roles in a number of prominent
films, most recently including the comedy sequel Miss Congeniality 2, opposite Sandra Bullock.
King is currently working on the animated series The Boondocks, in which she lends her
voice to the characters Riley and Huey. Based on the popular comic strip, the series revolves
around the adventures of two boys who experience a culture clash when they move from inner
city Chicago to the suburbs to live with their grandfather. The Boondocks premiered in the fall of
2005 on the Cartoon Network during the successful Adult Swim late-night block, and has been
picked up for a second season.
She also recently starred as Margie Hendricks, Ray Charles' mistress, in the
film Ray, opposite Jamie Foxx. King's other recent film credits include A Cinderella
Story, with Hilary Duff; Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde, with Reese Witherspoon; and
Daddy Day Care, opposite Eddie Murphy.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, King made her television debut on the hit sitcom 227.
After five seasons, she 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 before going on to roles in A Thin Line Between Love and Hate
opposite Martin Lawrence, and Friday, with Ice Cube, revealing a dynamic range.
A defining moment in King's career came in 1997 with her memorable role as Cuba
Gooding Jr.'s wife, Marcee, 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 returned 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.
