Geoffrey Owens lands 10-episode deal, Nicki Minaj donates $25K

Owens said he was initially embarrassed about his picture hitting the web, but later grew proud thanks to the outpouring of support from fans and artistic peers.

Owen said "I texted my son and warned him about the story breaking and I also apologized to him for embarrassing him "and he responded back with a attractive text about how proud he was of him".

On Friday, TMZ announced that the actor, who was recently shamed after a photo began circulating that showed him working as a cashier at Trader Joes, will appear in a big role on "The Haves and the Have Nots".

It's been a rollercoaster week for former Cosby Show actor Geoffrey Owens after the actor suddenly re-emerged into the spotlight after being photographed bagging groceries at Trader Joe's. "This man is a whole LEGEND in these streets!" "I personally wanna donate, on behalf of Queen Radio, $25,000 to Geoffrey Owens today". You don't know how hard it is to get your first acting job.

Owens took the position at Trader Joe's in part because "In the past 26 years, I have hardly ever had an acting job that lasted more than 10 weeks", he told CNN .


Perry offered Owens a spot on the show Tuesday via Twitter, writing: "I have so much respect for people who hustle between gigs". "So I felt like, 'Oh my God, could you imagine?' We all have done jobs like that and I just thought, what if that were me?"

Owens played Elvin Tibideaux, the husband of the eldest daughter of Bill Cosby's character on the TV series in the 1980s and 90s.

"Tell him that I'm going to have my team contact him because I hope he doesn't take it the wrong way", she said. I just did it.

"I was only devastated for an hour or two", Owens said. I didn't even... I barely owned a television.
