Even in just a plain T-shirt and jeans combo, Joel Courtney is an absolute snack. Starring alongside Jacob in The Kissing Booth, Joel plays the role of Lee Flynn, the dorky best friend of Elle Evans. He’s got the “nice guy” game going for him in the show, but you’re in for a treat if you ran a quick Google search on him.
