LL Cool J to star in ‘NCIS’ spin-off

Rapper-actor to play former Navy SEAL

LL Cool J is getting on the gumshoe beat.

The rapper-actor has been set to star in CBS’ planned spinoff of “NCIS.” He’ll play a tough but charming former Navy SEAL who works undercover for the NCIS unit in L.A. and is an expert on the Middle East.

The spinoff of CBS’ durable drama will air as one half of a two-part episode of “NCIS” later this season. “NCIS” showrunner Shane Brennan created the untitled spinoff and exec produces for CBS Paramount Network TV.

LL Cool J has logged a host of film and TV roles in recent years, including recent guest spots on NBC’s “30 Rock” and Fox’s “House.”

LL Cool J is repped by Endeavor.
