I became a little bit of a LL Cool J fan after seeing him on 30 Rock. That show has this way of bringing out the likability in actors. James Franco is another good example (KUMIKO-TAAAN!!!).
Anyway, LL Cool J.
Yeah, those biceps are fierce!
That's one tough dude. He looks like he could knock me out with his pinkie finger. Totally perfect for his role in NCIS: LA.
I am really liking NCIS: LA too, it's kind of surprising. I started watching the show out of sheer curiosity, partly because LL Cool J was so amusing on 30 Rock, and also because I haven't seen Chris O'Donnell in anything in a long time. The show is growing on me at an alarming rate. I really hope it goes on for a good few more seasons, and not fizzle out due to overly ambitious plot decisions that ends up turning the whole show into a ridiculous lump of confusion. You know what I mean?
The show is pretty generic, it's definitely no CSI, but there is just something about the characters that draws you. Especially LL Cool J and Chris O'Donnell, the chemistry they have is amazing, considering that one is a wholesome golden boy type and the other is a badass rapper type.
I think LL Cool J is one of those talent types that is able to do well in anything he tries.
Just look at those biceps,
I mean, a successful rap career, a constant, if not outstanding, string of acting experiences in his filmography, that's pretty impressive. I haven't exactly listened to a lot of his songs yet, but I knew I was damn happy when he was not killed by those horrible, horrible sharks in Deep Blue Sea.
And he does seem to be a genuinely nice guy who has checked his ego a long time ago, proud but not arrogant, has a great sense of humour and is a devoted family man who loves his wife and kids. Ooo, so many adjectives!
In case you are not getting any of the adjectives from the fierceness of the picture before, here's a more, erm, wholesome one.
Friendly! The brush is so lucky!
