Unexpected Beefcake on "My Name is Earl"

I've been re-watching My Name is Earl (2005-2009), about a lowbrow ne-er-do-well (Jason Lee) trying to reform by going through his list of misdeeds and righting them, one by one. He's assisted by his dimwitted brother Randy (Ethan Suplee) and a series of friends and antagonists.

More gay subtexts than the gay-free Raising Hope, even two gay characters.  But not a lot of beefcake.  Until we got to the Season 2 premiere.

Earl's ex-wife Joy (Jaime Pressley) steals a truck, not realizing that there is a guy locked in the back.  In order to get him out without revealing their identities, Earl and Joy order him to take his shirt off and use it as a blindfold.  Later we see him in his underwear as Joy chases him across a field.



Lots of shots of the guy's muscular physique!























Wondering who he was, I looked him up on the IMDB, and found Josh Wolf (1974-), a comedian who has also appeared on Raising Hope, and as himself on Chelsea Lately and his own talk show on CMT (2015-).















On Shark after Dark, Josh and fellow comedian Courtney Davis tried to survive New York City naked.















He is happy to receive admiration for his chest from gay men, and he tweets:

Do people who think being gay is a choice want to sleep with everyone all of the time but they just choose not to?

I don't know what that means, but it sounds gay positive.
