Actor Geoffrey Owens & Grocery Store

Actor Geoffrey Owens opened up to CNN on Tuesday about being thrust into the spotlight after he made headlines for working as a cashier at a Trader Joe’s in Clifton, New Jersey.

Owens, who’s best known for his role as Elvin Tibideaux on “The Cosby Show,” which aired from 1985 to 1992, told CNN in an interview on Tuesday that he was hurt when The Daily Mail first reported the story last week.

But the 57-year-old actor has received an outpouring of love and support from fans and even a job offer from Tyler Perry.

“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 if a true artist,” Tyler tweeted Tuesday morning.

 “And in the past 26 years, I have hardly had an acting job that lasted more than 10 weeks and most of those jobs were theater jobs which pay a lot less than television and film,” Owens explained. “I needed to take a job to pay my bills, to support my family. It was basically that.” – The Blaze

“And in the past 26 years, I have hardly had an acting job that lasted more than 10 weeks and most of those jobs were theater jobs which pay a lot less than television and film,” Owens explained. “I needed to take a job to pay my bills, to support my family. It was basically that.”

He said there’s an important take away from his experience.

“Essentially, one kind of work is not better, superior, than another kind of work and that we re-evaluate that whole idea and just honoring the dignity of work and respecting the dignity of the working person,” Owens said.
