RBW Spotlight - Regina King

Please help me in wishing someone who I feel is one of the most underrated African American actresses in Hollywood a Happy Birthday. Regina King turns 37 today. It has been incredible to see how long someone with the homegirl next door look, could make it so far in that crazy industry. She started off on 227 and has went on to star in many movies after. She also does voiceover work as one of the characters on the Boondocks, as well as her Always commercials. Since we're in election season I figured instead of giving you some footage of one of her many roles, I'd give you a cute little PSA she did about her first time voting.

She looks good for 37 and she's done some great roles...I'm still waiting for her to land an academy-award like role...I think she's good enough to win one..

that's my girl right there, but I really love her in the boondocks. I know she isn't physically acting, but her voice with that 1 lil bad ass boy has me dying laughing, and then her voice on the other brother is completely diff. i like this blog, don't be surprised to see me all the time

She is definitely talented and should be in more films. But then again, it's probably the lack of good movies as to why she isn't in enough.

Oh yea, Regina King is THAT one. "Truth Be Told" is the indy film on the STARZ network and it was cool. To be honest, I think she deserved an Oscar for her performance in Ray. She was good in that movie.
I liked her in "This Christmas" too. Oh but she's got Riley down to a T on the Boondocks. She's just one of my faves.

I agree with you...Regina King is one of the best actresses out there!! She really does a good job on Boondocks.

I love her! She's come a LONG way since 227, and is an amazing actress. I wish her continued success.
