The news comes after the series finale of ‘NCIS: Los Angeles,” in which LL Cool J played special agent Sam Hanna, aired earlier this week.

And Vanessa Lachey, who plays Jane Tennant on “NCIS: Hawai’i,” couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome the rapper into the fold.

Now, we have the amazing opportunity to bring Sam Hanna to Hawai’i to help the island solve some cases and maybe have a few laughs in the process. Welcome to the ohana, Todd! It’s going to be a fun ride!” she exclaimed.
