Jason Lee Wants To Make More My Name Is Earl

Jason Lee Wants To Make More My Name Is Earl

Jason Lee has come out and said he's keen to make a few more episodes of My Name Is Earl.

There have been calls for a new series ever since the last episode aired back in 2009, leaving fans on a bit of a clifhanger as the final episode ended with the words 'To Be Continued... '

For more than a decade we have been waiting for the closure that never came.

Well, that could soon be about to change, as the show's star says he would love to do the character of Earl Hickey justice and end things properly.

Speaking to JoBlo, the 49-year-old said: "We would be [game for a revival], we've talked about it, yeah. At least like, even a little three-part series to wrap up the list or something.

"You should talk to [the show's creator] Greg Garcia about that but it's definitely on the list, no pun intended, to try to wrap up that universe if we can."

Urging fans to get involved, he went on: "Start a petition [to reboot the show]. Everybody asks me, 'what happened, what happened, what happened?' I get that question probably more than any other question.

"My answer... is 'I hope we do'."

The show ran for four years and almost 100 episodes, but Lee wasn't the only star. Ethan Suplee played Randy, Earl's gormless brother.

And it's safe to say that he's changed a lot over the years. He's absolutely stacked.

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 [Today I Learned] 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."
