The doors of opportunity are open for Geoffrey Owens.
Days after booking a 10-episode gig on Tyler Perry’s hit OWN series, “The Haves and the Have Nots,” Geoffrey has landed a guest role on “NCIS: New Orleans.”
The former “Cosby Show” star will play the role of Commander Adams.
According to Deadline, Commander Adams, an old and valued friend who Pride (Scott Bakula) goes to for both medical and spiritual advice. Still emotionally reeling following his brush with death in the season finale/season premiere, Pride consults Adams about what could be causing his current symptoms and what his next course of action should be.
“NCIS: New Orleans” executive producer Christopher Silber said Geoffrey was perfect for the role:
For Commander Adams, we needed someone with compassion, competence and heart. That’s Geoffrey in a nutshell.
An accomplished actor who seemed like the perfect fit to add to our extended repertory company. We’re lucky to have him on the show.
