During an interview with “Entertainment Tonight,” the actor, who has quit his gig at Trader Joe’s says he’s “skeptical” and “encouraged” by Tyler’s offer.

That was kind of cool.

I mean, that kind of sounded like he was saying, ‘Come work with me.’ I’m so, like, skeptical. Like, really? Are you actually saying come work with me? Because we’ve never worked together before.

So, that’s a very, very generous thing for him to say. And we’ll see what happens with that. But that’s encouraging.

Keshia Knight Pulliam, who starred with Geoffrey on “The Cosby Show,” surprised him with a call during the interview.
