During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, LL Cool J spoke about the future of NCIS: Los Angeles. One thing the reporter wanted to know is if there’s any possibility some episodes will be filmed from home.

“That would be a little tough,” said LL Cool J. “This ain’t a talk show.” The reporter suggests quarantine episodes could be possible if they got creative. LL Cool J jokes that maybe they could think about it. “Alright we can get creative,” he says. “Bring some shotguns over to the house and let’s get busy,” he jokes.

So, how is LL Cool J spending his quarantine time? He told the publication he’s keeping busy by exercising and hosting an Instagram Live series, “The Cool Down.” He’s also hosting his SiriusXM channel, “Rock the Bells.” Here’s how LL Cool J describes a typical day:

Wake up early, do a Zoom workout with my trainer. After the workout, I do 10,000 Zooms for a lot of different things because I’m working every day on Rock the Bells. And then trying my best to fight the good fight against the ice cream I’m trying to keep it out of here. Somebody buy a flavor I don’t like, please!

LL Cool J says the adjustment after the pandemic has been easy for him. Surprisingly, he revealed he’s an introvert and enjoys being home. This is an unexpected revelation from an entertainer as charismatic as LL Cool J. “The easiest adjustment for me is staying in the house,” LL Cool J told The Hollywood Reporter. “Most people probably wouldn’t think it at first glance, but I’m actually an introvert. So, for me, staying in the house is not a problem at all. I’ve never been a party animal anyway, so that’s probably the easiest part.”

He told the publication he has found that putting in hard work pays off in the end. “Every day I try to be better than I was the day before,” said LL Cool J.

“I didn’t need this to be a catalyst to pursue my dreams or make me want to develop myself spiritually and mentally or even emotionally. What I will say is the more work you’re putting into your life and the more things you set up. When times are tough and when things like this happen, you find out that you benefit from the hard work that you put in.”
