Geoffrey Owens accepts the job from Tyler Perry

In the span of two weeks, actor Geoffrey Owens of The Cosby Show, has gone from being publicly shamed for working a day job between acting gigs to landing a recurring part on a Tyler Perry drama.

Owens has accepted Perry’s offer of a role on the OWN series The Haves and the Have Nots. He’ll recur on the show’s sixth season, appearing in 10 episodes.

Tyler was one of a number of Hollywood heavyweights who offered support for Owens after the former Cosby Show regular was photographed working at a Trader Joe’s in New Jersey. The photos and story went viral after appearing in the Daily Mail and on the Fox News website.
