Riley + Huey Freeman = Regina King.

Who doesn’t like The Boondocks. Who doesn’t L.O.V.E Riley Freeman? Serious people probably. But did you know:

Regina King is the voice actor for Huey Freeman and Riley Freeman. She was originally cast to voice Riley but Aaron McGruder was so impressed he asked her to voice Huey as well.


King says she finds herself asked about her work on Adult Swim’s cartoon The Boondocks more than anything else she’s worked on.

“Actually more than any other project that I have done, that’s the one that I get asked about the most,” King revealed. “For a show to take two and half year hiatuses and people still want it to come back, that’s big.”

With post-production finally underway on the show’s third season, King, who voices the show’s lead characters Riley and Huey,  finds herself a excited and frustrated about the long delay.

“I am so happy that it is coming back,” but added, “I wish there was some website that people could send a message to Sony [Television Entertainment] …and say ‘What are youThe Boondocks Aaron McGruder doing?  because Boondocks could be so bigger than what it is.”



Can’t share enough of my favourite episodes. By now you must have seen ’em all, I sincerely hope you have.
