Chris O'Donnell Parades On with LL Cool J

Chris O'Donnell Parades On with LL Cool J

Chris O’Donnell and LL Cool J keep it friendly on the latest cover of Parade magazine this weekend. Here’s what the NCIS: Los Angeles costars told Parade‘s Jeanne Wolf:

LL on why why they fit together on screen so well: “I really couldn’t explain it. We had never met before the show. Then we went to the gun range for weapons training, and we just clicked. You have one guy, Chris, who’s from the Midwest, and this other guy, me, who’s from the inner city of New York. But we share a common sensibility. I think that me plus him equals a little more than two, you know?”

Chris on the pair’s chemsitry: “I found out right away that neither of us has an ego that is too big to get in the way of doing what’s best for the show. We give each other a hard time, sometimes jokingly and sometimes seriously, but nobody gets offended. He and I are both pretty wide open. We have good communication, which is important in any relationship. We’re both kind of down-to-earth, yet we don’t have normal lives. Let’s face it—anyone who got into this business wasn’t seeking a normal life.”

Chris on being in the biz since his teenage years: “I’ve grown up a little bit. I’m almost 40 years old now. But everyone was introduced to me when I was 18 and I looked like I was 15. I’ve been around a long time. I don’t know that NCIS: Los Angeles is a complete reinvention, but I’m playing one of the guys in charge this time. Before I’d be cast as a young, impressionable character. I think part of that is just being more mature.”
