The former “Cosby Show” star, who was thrust back into the spotlight after a woman snapped a photo of him working at Trader Joe’s, paid it forward by donating the $25,000 to the Actor’s Fund in honor of Earle Hyman.

I would like to give this donation of 25k to the Actor’s Fund in memory of the late, great Earle Hyman — who played Cosby’s father, ‘Russell’, on “The Cosby Show” — who lived his last many years and died at the Actors’ Home, (funded and run by the Actor’s Fund).

I am extremely grateful to Nicki Minaj for enabling struggling actors to continue pursuing their dreams.

Nicki co-signed the gesture telling TMZ:

I’m happy to be a part of a great cause. I wish Geoffrey much success and want him to know how loved he is. Rest in Peace to Earle Hyman.

This is just another example of what a wonderful stand-up guy Geoffrey is.

Be on the lookout for Geoffrey Owens on upcoming episodes of “NCIS” and “The Haves and the Have Nots.”
