Ever since The Cosby Show‘s Geoffrey Owens was publicly shamed for working at a Trader Joe’s by Fox News, the actor’s story has highlighted the ebbs and flows of the creative and cultural arts industries, especially in Hollywood. Owens, who remains a working actor with small TV parts in shows like Elementary, The Blacklist and Lucifer, spoke about the experience — and the work ethic sometimes required by the industry — on Tuesday’s Good Morning America. Aside from all of the love and support that many have sent his way, however, it seems Tyler Perry is willing to offer him a job.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Perry tweeted the offer to Owens early Tuesday morning. “I’’m about to start shootings OWN’s number one drama next week! Come join us!!!” he tweeted. “I have so much respect for people who hustle between gigs. The measure of a true artist.”
