LL Cool J Helps Offset Land A Role On NCIS


LL Cool J helps Rapper Offset land an acting role on the popular CBS tv series NCIS.
Offset is part of the rap group the Migos and said he wanted to transition over and try acting so he hollered at LL Cool J and will have a role on an upcoming episode next month.
“Offset and I, we’ve been talking on and off,” LL Cool J explained. “He kinda came to me and was like ‘Yo I would like to be involved with it.’ One thing led to another. You know they did their process went through their thing and here we are. When you’re a rap artist, they think you’re gonna play a gangster or a thug or you’re gonna play something closer to the streets. And he’s completely away from all of that.”
In the episode, Offset stars as Kadri Kashan Khan, who’s an undercover CIA Officer that has been working for years in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula. Khan embeds himself within the local tribes by smuggling contraband so that he can monitor terrorists and weapons movements in that region. LL Cool J and Chris O’Donnell’s characters recruit Khan to help rescue one of their own who’s been captured and held for ransom in the Sinai Peninsula.
“I really hollered at him and was like ‘Yo this is what I want to do,'” Offset said. “I didn’t ever wanna come into acting and be like put in this category of being the bad guy all the time. I wanted to show that I can do anything that someone sets in front of me.”
The episode airs March 1.
