Bio

Regina King is an American actress best known for her starring role as Brenda Jenkins in the television sitcom 227, from 1985-1990.

Movies she has appeared in include A Thin Line Between Love and Hate; Jerry Maguire; Enemy Of The State; Mighty Joe Young; Daddy Day Care; Legally Blonde 2: Red, White And Blonde; Ray; Miss Congeniality 2: Armed & Fabulous; and The Ant Bully.

She had a recurring role as Sandra Palmer in the sixth season of the television series 24, in 2007.

King could be seen in Living Proof, executive-produced by Renée Zellweger and starring opposite Harry Connick, Jr. Her other projects include Year of the Dog (opposite Molly Shannon) and the Screen Gems' film The Christmas (opposite Loretta Devine).

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 Boys 'n the Hood and later starred in Poetic Justice and Higher Learning.

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, the hit action-thriller Enemy of the State, the family-adventure Mighty Joe Young, and the comedy Down to Earth.

King also found her way back to the small screen in 2000 with a role in the acclaimed If These Walls Could Talk 2 and in the comedy, Leap of Faith. She also worked on the animated series The Boondocks as the voice of both Huey and Riley.

From 2009-2012 she had a starring role as Lydia Adams, a dedicated daughter and detective, in the television drama series Southland.

King currently lives in Los Angeles with her son, Ian.
