NCIS: Los Angeles TriviaThis series is barely a "spinoff" of the original "NCIS TV Show". Several of the characters on this version did appear on the original but only on two episodes designed strictly to promote this series. Those episode titles on the original series were titled, "Legend: Part 1" and "Legend: Part 2". They were broadcast on April 28th and May 5th of 2009.

LL Cool J tries to do as many of his own stunts as possible. He has stated, "I want people to know that I'm invested in the character and I want to give them the real experience".
Chris O'Donnell got his first paid acting job in a McDonald's commercial. Chris came from a large family. He has six older brothers and sisters. He continued the family tradition as Chris has five children of his own (as of 2014).
The multi-talented LL Cool J is generally regarded as one of the most successful rap artists of all times. In 1985, he composed and performed the first ever rap love song, "I Need Love". His name stands for "Ladies Love Cool James" but in his personal life he goes by his real middle name, "Todd". He also has a large family with one son and three daughters. He always knew he wanted to be a performer. The only non-entertainment job he held was briefly as a paper boy.
Linda Hunt was the first actor to win an Oscar for seriously portraying a character of the opposite sex. Other actors had previously won Oscars for roles where they were pretending to be a member of the opposite sex like Dutin Hoffman in "Tootsie" and Barbara Streisand in "Yentl" but Linda won for playing a real person of the opposite sex in "The Year of Living Dangerously".
