Well, at least he's not licking his lips and blowing kisses.

Ladies love LL Cool J, but it damn sure ain't because they think dude is a great actor. While he can reasonably proclaim himself the G.O.A.T. (greatest of all time) in rap, in the acting world he's just plain goat-ass. And yet he stays getting roles, perhaps because his agent throws on sensual LL jams and rubs a lot of...backs (just a guess). On NCIS: Los Angeles, CBS's new NCIS spinoff, which premieres tonight, he plays an ex-Navy SEAL turned undercover agent for the L.A. branch of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. Based on his previous work, we don't expect this one will stay afloat (then again, America loves the bad acting on The Mentalist). Check out clips of LL's worst acting to see why we've got a sinking feeling...


Mindhunters (2004)
WORST LINE: "They were laced with some kind of acid!"
COMPLEX SAYS: Peep how Cool J drags a perfectly good actor—Clifton Collins Jr. (Star Trek, Traffic, Capote)—down to his melodramatic level. Sadly, it takes two L's to spell LL.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

S.W.A.T. (2003)
WORST LINE: "I don't speak Spanish! Tell me where your boyfriend is! You're not helping him any!"
COMPLEX SAYS: You know it's a problem when your massive cranium has more screen presence than you do.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rollerball (2002)
WORST LINE: "[Concern registering on his face] Aurooooooooooooooora!"
COMPLEX SAYS: The only way this clip could be more painful is if you rolled a motorcycle over our balls.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In Too Deep (1999)
WORST LINE: "I heard you're real good with your tongue...real good."
COMPLEX SAYS: LL plays a drug dealer so powerful he's named God, but if you ask us, this is the Devil's work.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Deep Blue Sea (1999)
WORST LINE: "You ate my bird!"
COMPLEX SAYS: In acting, the emotion is all in the eyes. Damn, that shark is good!

BONUS BAD ACTING:

Virgin Mobile Commercial (2007)
WORST LINE: "You're welcome. Try to stay strong."
COMPLEX SAYS: We actually believed LL in this one, because, really, who really knows what kind of sick perversions roll around in a head as steroidally gigantic as that?
