LL Cool J

In 1985, LL burst onto the national stage by playing himself in the classic hip hop flick Krush Groove, a role that launched his stardom as a rap artist. His hit 1995 sitcom, In The House, introduced America to LL’s comedic acting side. Though it would be his role as Julian Washington, the cocky NFL star, in 1999’s Any Given Sunday that would establish LL as both a national hip hop sex symbol and major film/TV actor.
