Box Office Watch: Kerry Washington & Samuel L. Jackson’s Lakeview Terrace Tops the Box Office

The Samuel L. Jackson-Kerry Washington thriller Lakeview Terrace opened at No. 1 at the box office, pulling in an estimated $15.6 million in its opening weekend. In the controversial film, Jackson plays a veteran LAPD police officer who doesn't care for his new neighbors, a married couple played by the beautiful Washington and the equally stunning Patrick Wilson. Jackson's character doesn't like them because they are an interracial couple. The film, which refers to the neighborhood where Rodney King was beaten by police in 1991, was produced by Will Smith.

‘Woman to Watch’: Kerry Washington Featured in Marie Claire

Actress Kerry Washington, who can next be seen in Lakeview Terrace with Samuel L. Jackson & Patrick Wilson, is featured in the latest issue of Marie Claire. "I've been to nine states on behalf of Obama," she tells the magazine. "The enormous level of diversity among the volunteers have been so great to see!" The 31-year-old Bronx-born stunner, who has a knack for playing the wives of Oscar winners onscreen (Jamie Foxx in Ray and Forest Whitaker in The Last King of Scotland), lives in L.A. with her shih tzu-Yorkie mix "Josephine Baker," and admires her mama. "She's the epitome of grace--as a person, and as a woman of color," Washington says. "She's very cerebral. She taught me about walking with dignity in the world."

Samuel Jackson Fights Kerry Washington’s Miscegenation in Lakeview Terrace

In the upcoming thriller Lakeview Terrace, Samuel L. Jackson plays a veteran LAPD police officer who doesn't care for his new neighbors, played by the beautiful Kerry Washington and the equally stunning Patrick Wilson. Jackson's character primarily doesn't like the incoming yuppies because they are an interracial married couple. "It was a different take, something that is not often portrayed," James Lassiter, who with Will Smith produced the film, told the Los Angeles Times. Race, Lassiter added, "is not the singular driver of [Turner's] hate. But he is a racist." "People will say they are not voting for [Barack Obama] because he's black, but of course they are. They have no idea what his platform is," Jackson said of the topical nature of the film. "Race is an issue that everybody thinks about but you avoid talking about." Speaking of race: Lakeview Terrace, which opens September 19, also refers to the neighborhood where Rodney King was beaten by police in 1991.
