‘Southland’ star Regina King brings some much needed acting class to Mr. Media HQ!

STARTS @ 9:10 a.m.!Regina King plays Lydia Adams, a dedicated daughter and detective in NBC's new drama series "Southland."

Thanks to roles in a number of prominent films, King's distinguished talents have not gone unnoticed by Hollywood. The skilled actress could be most recently seen in Living Proof, starring opposite Harry Connick, Jr. Her other projects include Year of the Dog and The Christmas.

King also starred in the comedy Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous and she appeared in the Oscar-nominated film Ray. Her other feature credits also include Cinderella Story, Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde and Daddy Day Care.

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, Poetic Justice and Higher Learning. She bounces effortlessly from dramatic to comedic performances, as proven in the hit film Friday and A Thin Line Between Love and Hate.

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, Enemy of the State, Mighty Joe Young and Down to Earth.

She most recently worked on the animated series "The Boondocks" as the voice of both Huey and Riley.
