Check out the video below to see how Rach guessed her way into LL Cool J’s reveal to the audience.

The father of four may be entering his ninth season playing Sam Hanna on NCIS: Los Angeles, but Rach wanted to talk about his other job as host Lip Sync Battle. LL pinky swore to Rach that she may have a chance of getting on the set after she revealed she’s a huge fan of the competition show.

“I’ll cook anything for you if you let me on Lip Sync Battle — I’m so obsessed with that show. It’s so amazing... I will bring food for the entire crew!” Rach promised.

“I would love to have you on Lip Sync Battle… you gotta come party with us!” LL replied.

He calls the NCIS: Los Angeles cast his “family” and says that he doesn't take his on-screen fame for granted. The hip-hop star rose to fame in the late 80s and 90s but after over 30 films and multiple TV appearances, he’s proven himself as an actor as well. After eight seasons playing a former U.S. Navy SEAL and a Senior NCIS Special Agent, LL Cool J says acting never gets old — and his work ethic is something he hopes his kids see and emulate. .

“They have to work for it; they don't get the LL Cool J free pass… I’m in Hollywood but I didn't go Hollywood.”
