Rolling out spoke with Regina King ahead of the world premiere of the film One Night in Miami, which represents the award-winning actress’s directorial debut. Based on the stage play written by Kemp Powers, the film chronicles a legendary night in 1964 when four icons — Malcolm X, Cassius Clay, Sam Cooke and Jim Brown — gathered to celebrate one of the biggest upsets in boxing history. Acting as the self-described “fifth wheel,” King adds another level of excellence to her growing list of accolades. Amazon Studios‘ One Night in Miami, starring Kingsley Ben-Adir, Eli Goree, Aldis Hodge and Leslie Odom Jr., premieres Friday, Jan. 15, on Amazon Prime Video.
