LL Cool J Toplining NCIS Spin-Off


LL Cool J has been set to star in CBS’ planned spin-off of “NCIS,” says Variety.

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 spin-off 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 spin-off and executive produces for CBS Paramount Network TV.
