CBS has an easy lay-up with its upcoming spin-off of NCIS, but there is still some business to attend to before the ratings start piling in. The network has begun courting stars to headline the show, and the first rumors coming in place Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J at the top of the list.
According to EW.com, O'Donnell and LL are currently in negotiations to star in the untitled series, which will get its wheels in motion later this year. The plan is to introduce the new NCIS team in an episode of NCIS this season and likely branch them out next fall.
O'Donnell (Scent of a Woman, Batman & Robin) is looking to fill the role of Callen, a man who can change personas in an instant. Rapper-turned-actor LL Cool J (In the House) is gearing up to play a former Navy SEAL.
Do you think these are the right choices for this highly anticipated project?
