LL Cool J Loves Playing the Hero on ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’


Island Def JamLL Cool J is truly enjoying his acting career. On Monday’s Live with Kelly and Michael, the rapper-turned-actor discussed what he loves most about his role in NBC’s hit drama NCIS: Los Angeles.

“It’s a lot of fun, plus I get to play a hero, you get to play this character that has the values that I believe in,” LL says of his character Sam Hanna. “You know, he believe in protecting his family, protecting his country, protecting our way of life, you know, he puts his life on the line every day.”

LL Cool J adds that another perk of the job is all the gadgets the cast gets to use. “The technologies we use on NCIS: Los Angeles are all real.  It may be sped up for the sake of the episode, I mean, a case might take six months instead of a couple of days, but all of that technology is very real,” he says.

NCIS: Los Angeles airs Monday nights at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.
