Almost fired because of your own wife? NCIS: L.A. star Chris O'Donnell (52) revealed in an interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert what happened.

The whole thing happened on the set: "So they have a scene where there’s this guy who comes into a restaurant and he starts shooting up the place. And everyone freaks out and panics and they’re running away."

Before starring as "Sam Hanna" in 'NCIS: L.A.', LL Cool J was a successful...

Uh oh, who can that be? "I look back and the DP comes over and says, ‘You know, Chris, they’re all laughing.’ I go, ‘Yeah, I know… that’s my wife. We’re gonna handle that’. So I go back and I say, ‘Guys, you’re gonna get me fired, so you need to co-operate here and maybe when the guy starts firing the gun, it’s not that funny,’" according to the series star.

Of course, the actor-director wasn't fired because of his wife, but at least Chris O'Donnell now has a funny story to tell!
