LL Cool J In Talks To Star In NCIS Spin-Off

Rap veteran turned actor LL Cool J is in talks to star in a spin-off of CBS' television show, NCIS. According to The Hollywood Reporter, LL is in talks to play the role of a tough, but likeable U.S. Navy Seal.

In July of 2006, CBS inked a seven-figure deal with LL Cool J, along with Alchemy Entertainment.

The rapper, who starred in the NBC/UPN hit sitcom In The House, from 1995-1999, was tapped to develop, produce and star in various T.V. shows for the network.

In 2007 LL starred as a detective named "Manny Baxter" in the 2007 pilot The Man, which aired on CBS.

Actor Chris O'Donnell is also up for a part as an undercover police officer on the new spin-off, which will debut during an episode of NCIS this spring.
