Each week, fans tune into NCIS: Los Angeles to watch LL COOL J's character Sam Hanna dive into action-packed situations to solve the toughest crimes.

While most people can't wait to cheer on the NCIS: Los Angeles team as they jump through difficult hurdles to get justice for their victims, there's one group of people who wish they'd be just a tad less successful at their jobs: real NCIS agents. 

LL COOL J stopped by The Late Show and told Stephen Colbert: "I have NCIS agents coming [to me saying], 'LL, our higher-ups, you're making us look bad, bro. You're solving these cases in an hour and a half!" 


Though the star admitted that the work he does on TV pales in comparison to the crime-solving abilities of real-life NCIS agents, he said he has been honored to represent the nation's men and women in uniform over his past eight years on the show. 

"I represent the military; I represent all of the people who put their lives on the line," LL COOL J said. "I went down to Camp Pendleton, and I met with the Special Ops guys, I met with some sailors so I could really represent the military in a good way." 

Make sure to watch LL COOL J in the Season 8 finale of NCIS: Los Angeles entitled "Unleashed" on Sunday, May 14 at 8/7c on CBS and CBS All Access

Watch The Late Show with Stephen Colbert weeknights at 11:35/10:35c on CBS All Access
