Geoffrey Owens of 'Cosby Show' fame has suggestion for out-of-work actors!

Geoffrey Owens of Cosby Show fame has this advice to out-of-work actors, “Get a job at Trader Joe’s and have someone take your picture without you knowing it.”


Since Owens was shamed for working a nine-to-five job, he’s acted in a string of hits. Tyler Perry hired him for the drama The Haves and the Have Nots. Last week, he filmed scenes for NCIS: New Orleans. Owens admitted, “It’s been a little busier than usual, let’s put it that way.”

He worked for 15 months at Trader Joe’s. Owens shared an awkward story saying, "I was literally on my hands and knees changing the garbage at the registers when a customer asked, ‘Can I have your autograph?’ When they asked for pictures, I would say no. I never took a picture in the store.” (The New York Times)
