Don't call it a comeback! No seriously, don't — that's the whole point.
Geoffrey Owens, a former Cosby Show star, rocketed back to the forefront of the cultural conversation recently when he was publicly shamed by a jerk on the internet for working at a Trader Joe's. Owens, who clearly knows how great Trader Joe's is, didn't pay any heed to the trolls who tried to mock his "fall from grace," saying he was perfectly happy making an honest living at the grocery store in between gigs. But now the casting offers just seem to keep rolling in!
Earlier this week the actor was cast in a recurring role in Tyler Perry's The Haves and the Have Nots, and now Deadline reports that he's nabbed a guest starring role on the upcoming season of NCIS: New Orleans! Owens will appear in the sixth episode as Commander Adams, described as "an old and valued friend who Pride (Scott Bakula) goes to for both medical and spiritual advice. Still emotionally reeling following his brush with death in the season finale/season premiere, Pride consults Adams, on what could be causing his current symptoms and what his next course of action should be."
NCIS: New Orleans premieres Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 10/9c on CBS.
