Regina King

Regina King is currently starring in American Crime on ABC, with new episodes each Wednesday at 10/9c.  We discussed her award-winning role in season one, why she immediately signed back on for season two, and how the anthology series format delivers a great deal of freedom for the cast.  Regina also gives us a preview of tomorrow night’s episode that might be one of the best teasers of all time.
