Geoffrey Owens, known for his role as Elvin Tibideaux in “The Cosby Show,” landed a role in “Power” after going viral for working at Trader Joe’s.
“A few years ago someone posted Actor Geoffrey Owens working at Trader Joe’s trying to shame him & now this season of his life he’s on Power Book II,” a viral tweet read that 50 posted to his IG page. “I am very happy about this! S/O to everyone involved that made this happen! He’s doing a phenomenal job!”
50 praised Owens, writing, “Yeah the under dog back on Top @iamgeoffreyowens GHOST GLG,” Fif captioned the post.
Could we see Geoffrey Owens in a role in something else produced by 50 Cent? Earlier today, the rapper admitted his crush on Phylicia Rashad and his appreciation for The Cosby Show in a post where he suggested he would be attempting to revamp the show. The post included Geoffrey Owens and perhaps 50 Cent sees him playing a vital part in his “New Cosby Show” vision?
