CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE INFORMATION!Last month, a photo was posted online of Geoffrey Owens of Cosby Show fame, working at his grocery store job. As the internet often does, reactions were cruel and people began to shame the man for working at Trader Joe’s. Since then, he’s been offered a job on Tyler Perry’s new TV show and received an outpour of support from fans nationwide. Nicki Minaj also decided to make his day a little brighter, announcing her intent to donate $25,000 to Owens after being dragged online.
Tyler reached out via Twitter, saying, “I’m about to start shooting OWN’s number one drama next week! Come join us!!!”
Sources familiar with the deal tell TMZ joining Tyler is exactly what Geoffrey will do. We’re told he’s going to appear on Perry’s hit, “The Haves and the Have Nots.” Even bigger … it’s not a one shot deal. We’re told he’ll have a recurring role and appear on 10 episodes.
The show — on it’s 6th season — shoots in Atlanta, and we’re told Owens will fly there next week to begin filming.
