Ethan Suplee stars in "Wilfred" on FX as Spencer, Ryan's boorish, motorcycle-riding neighbor. Spencer grows marijuana in his home and attempts to form a bond with Ryan. Suplee also recently completed work on "Nevermind Nirvana" for FOX. 

Suplee is perhaps best known though for starring as Randy Hickey in NBC's "My Name Is Earl," the brother of Jason Lee's character of Earl. Randy's life seems to be as ill fated as Earl's—while living on his brother's couch, he accompanies Earl on his karma-cleansing journey.

Ethan Suplee has amassed a diverse and eclectic body of work over the past decade, ranging from comedic performances in feature films such as "Mallrats" and "Without a Paddle" to hauntingly dramatic pieces such as "American History X," "Blow" and "Cold Mountain." His breakthrough performance as a young football player in Disney's "Remember the Titans" with Denzel Washington garnered him critical acclaim and led to another role opposite Washington in director Nick Cassavetes' thriller "John Q."

Suplee has more recently starred in Tony Scott's "Unstoppable," starring Denzel Washington, "Brothers," opposite Tobey Maguire, Jake Gyllenhaal and Natalie Portman for director Jim Sheridan, "Fan Boys" for The Weinstein Company, "The Dry Land" with America Ferrera and Melissa Leo which was nominated in the Grand Jury Prize dramatic category at the Sundance Film Festival, director Terry Zwigoff's ("Ghost World") "Art School Confidential," New Line Cinema's comedy "Mr. Woodcock," opposite Seann William Scott, Billy Bob Thornton and Susan Sarandon, and Darren Aronofsky's"The Fountain," alongside Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz.

Suplee made his feature-film debut in 1995 (alongside "Earl" co-star Jason Lee) in writer-director Kevin Smith's "Mallrats," where he played the memorable William Black, a young man determined to crack the mystery behind the mall's magic eye poster. Smith went on to cast Suplee in "Chasing Amy" and "The Passion of the Clerks" and as the voice of Norman the Golgothan in "Dogma."  

Suplee's additional credits include "Without a Paddle" with Matthew Lillard and Seth Green, director Todd Phillip's "Roadtrip," and "Evolution" for director Ivan Reitman.

Suplee showcased his impressive acting chops with a powerful and compelling performance in 1998 in director Tony Kaye's "American History X." He played a carelessly violent racist skinhead who tries to convince his friend (Edward Furlong) to "come back to his roots" in their gang of white supremacists.

In addition, Suplee's role of high school football lineman, Lewis, in Disney's "Remember the Titans" exposed him to a larger audience, and he was singled out by many critics as a fresh and welcomed screen presence—with the Hollywood Reporter calling his performance "scene-stealing."

With Ted Demme's 1970s drug-cartel drama "Blow," Suplee continued to raise his profile, playing Tuna, the best friend of Johnny Depp's newly turned drug dealer George Jung.

Suplee played a pivotal role of a young soldier in Anthony Minghella's period piece "Cold Mountain," with Jude Law and Nicole Kidman. He also co-starred with Ashton Kutcher in New Line's "The Butterfly Effect."

Born in New York and raised in Los Angeles, Suplee landed his first role at 16 on the popular television series "Boy Meets World," where he recurred as the reluctant bully Frankie for three seasons. Suplee also made a powerful guest-starring appearance on NBC's "Third Watch," where he played a disturbed young man who filmed a video journal about his obsession with a girl.

Suplee is an active member of the World Wildlife Fund and has recently appeared in their campaign ad "Texting For Tigers." In his spare time, Ethan enjoys reading, cooking, playing chess, and riding his bicycle around town.

Suplee resides in Los Angeles with his wife Brandy Lewis and their daughter, Francis Clementine.
