Geoffrey Owens is proud to be an actor and an honorable hard working man.
The Cosby Show alumnus appeared in the Screen Actors Guild Awards’ traditional opening “I am an actor” segment four months after a customer revealed he’d been working at a New Jersey Trader Joe’s to make ends meet.
“So, somewhere in the middle of the road of my life, I found myself in the dark wood of unemployment and debt. But instead of switching careers like a sane person, I took a job at a local Trader Joe’s to see if I could hang in there with my career. And, um, it’s actually worked out pretty well. I’m Geoffrey Owens and I am an actor.”
We love him!
