Remember when Geoffrey Owens of Cosby Show fame was job-shamed for working as a cashier at Trader Joe’s? It turns out there’s a happy ending to the story.
A former actor on “The Cosby Show” has reportedly accepted an offer to appear on producer Tyler Perry’s television show after he said he had been shamed online for a job bagging groceries.
Geoffrey Owens accepted Perry’s offer to appear on the show “The Haves and Have Nots” in a recurring role for 10 episodes, TMZ reported on Friday.
Owens will reportedly fly down to Atlanta to begin filming next week, the outlet noted.
It looks like shining the spotlight on Owens’ admirable work ethic was just the right audition for Tyler Perry:
