Regina King’s Kid Likes To Watch Her Fight

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Nothing beats watching your mom kick major butt.

That’s how actress Regina King’s 13-year-old son feels every time he watches her throw down in a fight scene.

King – known for her role in Ray – plays a detective in the new drama, Southland, premiering tonight (Apr. 9) on NBC, and says her teenage son loves it when she plays parts that call for fight scenes.

In fact, he visits the set often, waiting for Mom to get in on any action that brings out her inner badass.

She says, “He’s totally excited that I get to be a cop!”

Her son’s fascination with her scrapping skills may stem from a time when an awesome fight scene was cut from one of King’s movies.

She explains, “I had to fight a girl and kick her through a bathroom stall door, which my son loved. He was so disappointed when the scene got edited out!”
