It looks like”Cosby Show” alum Geoffrey Owens may have a few doors open to him in the entertainment business.
The actor was recently spotted bagging groceries at a Trader Joe’s in New Jersey.
The couple who spotted him posted the photo on the internet and it was picked up by Fox News and the Daily Mail.
Since then Owens has received support from fellows actors and others in the entertainment industry .
The sad case of “job shaming,” even caught the attention of Atlanta entertainment executive and actor Tyler Perry, who reached out to Owens on Twitter.
“I’m about to start shootings OWN’s number one drama next week” Perry tweeted.
“Come join us!!! I have so much respect for people who hustle between gigs. The measure of a true artist,” he said.
