Hot Movie for LL Cool J
Rapper/actor/all-around busy dude LL Cool J continues to live up to the role. On the carpet of the MTV Movie Awards, LL told us that he has a new movie coming this summer called 'Slow Burn,' co-starring Ray Liotta, Taye Diggs and Jolene Blalock.
"It's a film noir," he said. "It's about a bi-racial girl who basically blends in and out of different worlds with the district attorney and drug dealers and all this weird stuff. Very interesting film."
The self-proclaimed Greatest of All Time, who just released his latest album, 'Todd Smith,' will also be taking the new music on the road. "I am touring this summer," he said. "I have a lot of dates planned to do in America, as well as Germany, Holland, going to Japan."
LL was on hand Saturday to present an award to filmmaker Spike Lee, whom he called "an icon." "He's done a lot for film," LL said.
Who else has done a lot for film, in his estimation? "One time I saw Meryl Streep and felt a little funny. I don't know why."
