Actor Ethan Suplee Is Now Ripped After Hitting The Gym

Actor Ethan Suplee Is Now Ripped After Hitting The Gym

So then - the first glow up of 2020 has emerged and it's a strong one - actor Ethan Suplee has shared photos of himself and he's looking absolutely hench.

The actor, whose roles in films like American History X and as Randy in TV show My Name Is Earl, had often been kind of defined by his weight. Now he has hit the gym and is looking muscly AF.

Although he famously lost the weight years ago, someone shared a post on Reddit highlighting it and people are shocked at how different he looks.

It was added with the caption: "TIL Ethan Suplee is RIPPED now."

One person replied: "There goes the My Name Is Randy sequel..."

Ethan Suplee actually got fitter years ago, losing over 200lbs mainly by cycling and entering races. But he was left with saggy skin on his body.

It also nearly cost him his role in Chance, which he worked alongside Hugh Laurie, as he told Entertainment Weekly back in 2017.

He told the news outlet: "Initially, the casting directors didn't want me to come in because I'd lost a bunch of weight. Apparently they had proposed me a bunch of times, but the casting directors were like, 'No, he's too thin now.'"

However, Ethan had actually been trying to bulk back then.

He added: "I'd gained a bunch of weight back because I actually didn't find being thin all that it's cracked up to be. So we convinced them that I was heavier again, and I went in, and that was that. I was heavy enough."

Suplee explained how he lost all the weight: "After My Name Is Earl, I started obsessively riding bicycles. I actually did get properly thin at one point - I was nine percent body fat. But I was also riding a bicycle six to eight hours a day, six days. After two years of that, my wife said, 'Hey, idiot, you can't retire and ride bicycles. You have to go get a job.'

"So then [when I started looking for work], I found that people were like, 'Who are you? We don't know you. You're this new person.' So a couple years ago I made the decision: I'm not going to kill myself to be thin when nobody knows me as a thin person, and I do think it is affecting the kind of jobs I'm getting.

"And so I just kind of relaxed on my diet."

There's your 2020 gym goals right there.
