Twenty years after appearing as the overweight character Louie Lastik in "Remember The Titans," actor Ethan Suplee has shed hundreds of pounds and is now completely jacked.
The 43 year-old actor is known for his roles as Seth Ryan in "American History X," Louie Lastik in "Remember the Titans," Frankie in "Boy Meets World," Randy Hickey in "My Name Is Earl," Toby in "The Wolf of Wall Street," and Elwood in "Without a Paddle." Over the years Suplee's weight has fluctuated. In 2009 he began focusing on his health, Suplee says "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."
Weight loss became less of a focus when Suplee decided to add some bulk and began working out. The result is a fit, focused, almost unrecognizable guy who's got defined muscles to spare. He started the New Year with social posts from the gym, stating that this year's goal is all about the abs.
Ethan Suplee has also launched a new podcast called "American Glutton," that you can hear on iHeartRadio from the link below.
