How to approach a co worker who is voluntarily working off the clock?

I am currently working as a contractor on a project at a large company. It consists mostly of doc review, data entry, and filling in information gaps.
One of my co workers is fresh out of law school and this is his first "real" job. The bosses have taken a shine to him. He gets projects from them on a constant basis.
But lately, he has been staying late and as he says "working for free" to get his assignments done. I want to tell him that he needs to request overtime or cut back on the "free" work. How can I do so without seeming jealous or self-interested?
