State Farm: Josh Turns Down A Street Race

In its newest ad promoting the Drive Safe & Save discount, State Farm shows a guy named Josh (nice name, by the way) who’s at a stoplight when a broey bro in a Challenger challenges his to a race. Josh isn’t interested in messing up his discount, so he kindly declines. The brah still wants to go, and he races off by himself. Is that bro the Sherminator from the American Pie movies? Why yes, it is him (Chris Owen). Anyone know who plays Josh?
