LL Cool J has signed on to star in the TV drama, The Man for CBS.

The rapper will play an undercover LAPD cop who spends the nights running sting operations to break criminal rings and the days raising his three adopted kids, an abused boy with an aggression problem, a former streetwalker girl he put in community college and a skateboarder boy who is a recovering drug addict. The Hollywood Reporter says he is the go-to guy in the upper echelon of Los Angeles, a high-octane hustler who can do anything, from getting into the hottest nightclub in town to scoring tickets for a Lakers game.

There's no production scheduled yet for The Man.
