Oh. my. God. Becky.
I WANT TO GO THERE.

Oh Wanny… You and I both know that you're gonna stay that guy. You are Dido to Macklemore's Eminem, Super Cat to his Sugar Ray, LV to his Coolio, the gotta keep 'em separator to his Offspring.

In September 2009, LL Cool J released a song about the NCIS TV series based on his experiences playing special agent Sam Hanna. [source]

GH: We shot this mockumentary thing about — because everybody used to joke that Rob looked like Haley Joel Osment — Rob playing Haley Joel Osment in his twenties, years later, and Charlie played Frankie Muniz years later.
What is Frankie Muniz doing that's so important that they had to resort to using Candace Cameron?
