LL Cool J joining ‘NCIS: Hawai’i’

Rapper makes cameo in season two finale

Reprising his role as Sam Hanna from NCIS: Los Angeles, LL Cool J made a surprise cameo appearance as the character on the season two finale of NCIS: Hawai’i, on Monday night (May 22nd) on the CBS Television Network. The rapper will join the NCIS: Hawai’i as a recurring guest star in the upcoming third season, set to premiere this fall following series finale of NCIS: Los Angeles which wrapped a 14 season run over the weekend.

In the season two finale, when Jane Tennant (Vanessa Lachey) and Kate Whistler (Tori Anderson) are attacked under fire in Venezuela, they receive assistance from Hanna, who made his way over from Morocco.

“All of us at NCIS: Hawai’i have been huge fans of LL Cool J for years and couldn’t be more thrilled or honored to be adding his spectacular talent to our ohana for season three,” executive producers Matt Bosack, Jan Nash and Christopher Silber share.

“One of the most beautiful things about working on NCIS: Hawai’i is the show’s ability to bring the franchise together. We have had so much fun spreading the aloha to NCIS and NCIS: LA with the triple crossover. Now, we have the amazing opportunity to bring Sam Hanna to Hawai’i to help the island solve some cases and maybe have a few laughs in the process. Welcome to the ohana, Todd! It’s going to be a fun ride!” adds Lachey.

NCIS: Hawai’i stars Vanessa Lachey, Alex Tarrant, Noah Mills, Yasmine Al-Bustami, Jason Antoon and Tori Anderson. Matt Bosack, Jan Nash and Christopher Silber serve as executive producers. NCIS: Hawai’i is produced by CBS Studios.
