LL Cool J Confirmed for 'NCIS' Spin-Off


The status of LL Cool J in the spin-off to "NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service" has been upgraded. If previously he was in talks to nab the role of Sam Hannah, it has now been confirmed that he has secured the part.


Hannah is described as tough but charming former U.S. Navy Seal and is "an expert on the Middle East." The pilot to the spin-off will air as one half of a two-part episode of "NCIS" later this season. Behind the new series which is yet to have a title is "NCIS" scribe Shane Brennan.


LL's name was linked to the "NCIS" role earlier this month when reports were sprouting on the spin-off development. Another actor that was also in talks is Chris O'Donnell who is eyed for the role as an ordinary guy born to do undercover named Callen.

I had no idea that there was gonna be a spin-off for this. I hope its just as great as NCIS is.So what does this mean for NCIS? Is the spin-off gonna affect it in anyway?

I don't think the spin off is meant to affect NCIS or eventually replace it. Just like NCIS was spun-off from JAG, but it wasn't really a replacement.Either way, I can't wait to see this new show and I hope Chris O'Donnell is on board as well.
