    Jonathan E. Kirby appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom Tuesday morning and entered the plea.

    Kirby was arrested after the actor-rapper subdued him in his home early Aug. 22, breaking the 56-year-old's jaw, nose and ribs in the process. He was later charged with felony residential burglary and faces 38 years to life in prison if convicted, due to his lengthy criminal history.

    LL Cool J, whose real name is James Todd Smith, and his family were unharmed during the break-in, and nothing was apparently taken from their home. He stars in the CBS series "NCIS: Los Angeles."

    A district attorney's spokeswoman says Kirby's bail was set at $1.1 million.
