After being shamed for working at Trader Joe’s, Geoffrey Owens said he has received an overwhelming amount of support, but not many acting gigs.

Tyler Perry is hoping to change that.

The media mogul took to social media on Tuesday and publicly extended an opportunity to the former “Cosby Show” star to come on down to OWN.

Tyler tweeted:

I’m about to start shootings OWN’s number one drama next week! Come join us!!!

I have so much respect for people who hustle between gigs. The measure of a true artist.

Peep the tweet below.


During his interview on “Good Morning America,” Geoffrey said he doesn’t want to get acting gigs just because of this incident, he wants it on his own merit.

Hopefully, he will take Tyler up on his offer…simply because he’s talented and deserves it.
