LL Cool J – Rappers Who Became Movie Stars

It’s not just a good script that kept LL Cool J (né James Todd Smith) alive in the shark-themed thriller ‘Deep Blue Sea:’ with more than 10 years’ experience under his belt by the time the film came out in 1999, he virtually willed himself into being one of the film’s few survivors. After early appearances in ‘Toys’ and ‘The Hard Way,’ LL joined the cast of ‘In The House,’ where he convincingly played both comedy and drama, and then went on to stand out in films like ‘Any Given Sunday,’ ‘Last Holiday’ and ‘Deliver Us From Eva.’ That he’s not only returned to TV but flourished on ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ for almost five years now is a testament to his maturity and refinement as a performer.
