Rapper/actor LL Cool J regularly engages in food fights with his NCIS: LOS ANGELES co-star CHRIS O'DONNELL after turning it into a tradition before every script reading.
The pair portray special agents in the cop drama and LL, real name James Todd Smith, reveals they bonded by throwing cream pies at one another in preparation for the TV show - and have kept up the playful fights ever since.
He tells Vanity Fair magazine, "The first time we met was at a table reading, and then we went immediately to weapons training - we started to hit each other in the face with whipped-cream pies. It's become a ritual before every table reading: we have pie fights."
