Geoffrey Owens might just heading back to Hollywood.
“#GeoffreyOwens I’m about to start shootings OWN’s number one drama next week,” the famous director and playwright shared on Twitter on Tuesday, referring to “The Haves and the Have Nots.” “Come join us!!! I have so much respect for people who hustle between gigs. The measure of a true artist.”
Owens shared his new role on interview at “Good Morning America” but he didn’t want any handouts from this recent burst of publicity.
“I wouldn’t feel comfortable getting acting jobs from this event,” said Owens. “I wouldn’t mind getting auditions. I don’t mind if people call me to try out for things, due to what’s happened … I want to get a job because I’m the right person.”
Owens also announced that he is feeling more celebrity than ever before and that this role bring him very positive benefits.
Owens played Elvin Tiabideaux — Bill Cosby’s character’s son-in-law — in 44 episodes. The show went off the air in 1992. He’s been working at Trader Joe’s for some 15 months before his picture and story went viral this Labor Day weekend. On “GMA,” he said that he’s also been teaching acting and directing for years.
