Geoffrey Owens Accepts Tyler Perry's Job Offer, Will Appear on 10 Episodes of 'The Haves and the Have Nots'

God’s blessings come in mysterious ways.

After being job-shamed for taking a side gig at Trader Joes, ‘Cosby Show’ actor Geoffrey Owens has accepted a job offer from Tyler Perry and will appear on 10-episodes of OWN’s ‘The Have and the Have Nots.’

via TMZ:

Owens, who starred on “The Cosby Show,” was recently photographed working as a cashier at Trader Joe’s. Geoffrey was shamed by many for the cashier job and Tyler reached outvia Twitter, saying, “I’m about to start shooting OWN’s number one drama next week! Come join us!!!”

Sources familiar with the deal tell us 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.

As for his salary … that’s unclear, but working one job is always better than two. 

Good for him.
