Exclusive: Raising Hope Reels In My Name is Earl Sidekick Eddie Steeples!

Crabman is back!

Eddie Steeples — best known as Jaime Pressly’s hashish-loving hubby Darnell “Crabman” Turner on My Name is Earl — has booked a guest stint on Fox’s Raising Hope. The gig reunites Steeples with his former Earl boss (and Hope creator) Greg Garcia.

No word on Steeples’ character or when his episode is scheduled to air.

Garcia has wasted no time inserting Earl alums into his latest white trash, er, working class success story. In November, Jason Lee played a faded ’80s rock star named Smokey Floyd.

Hope, which Fox recently picked up for a second season, returns with all-new episodes on Feb. 8.
