Playing againts a spewey villain

I was working on hand 5 from the workbook and I got to the point where I call on the flop. I had my open raising range at: AA-55,AKo-A9o,KQo-K9o,QJo-QTo,JTo,AKs-A2s,KQs-K9s,QJs-Q9s,JTs-J9s,T9s,98s

My range on that board consists very heavily of overcards. I think things like the nut flush draw and big Aces can be profitably called against a spewey villain but what about hands like JTo? My first pass had me calling with 96% of my opening range; due in large part to having a ton of hands that are overcards. My thought was "Well villain is super spewey so if an overcards hand hits I'm likely to get paid". That can't really be profitable when almost half of your range is two overs can it? It just seems like I'm going to miss WAY too often to make calling profitable when such a large portion of my range depends on binking the turn or river.
