‘Cosby Show’ Actor Lands Role In Tyler Perry Show After Being Shamed For Working At Trader Joe’s!

Bagging Gigs!

Tyler Perry & Nicki Minaj Help Out ‘Cosby Show’ Actor Geoffrey Owens!

Good things come to those who hustle!

A week after he was getting shamed by Twidiots for working as a cashier at Trader Joe’s, Geoffrey Owens scored a major acting gig thanks to Tyler Perry.

As we reported, the former Cosby Show actor went viral after a woman snapped a picture of him working the register at a store in New Jersey. Countless Twitter users poked fun at the actor for his less-than-desirable role, but the public ridicule was actually a blessing in disguise.

Because days later, a certain entertainment powerhouse took to Twitter to offer Owens a role on his OWN‘s number one drama series, The Haves and the Have Nots.

Inspired by Owens’ hustle, Perry shared:

Sources told TMZ Owens will fly to Atlanta next week to begin filming what will be a recurring role. He’s set to appear on 10 episodes.

But the blessings didn’t end there. Nicki Minaj announced that she’s making a $25,000 donation to the actor on her Beats 1 Queen Radio show — because she’s that impressed with his hustle, and that disgusted by how he was treated.

The Ganga Burn rapper also didn’t hold back her opinions about Karma Lawrence, the woman who took the photo of him.

Owens said he was initially embarrassed about his picture hitting the web, but later grew proud thanks to the outpouring of support from fans and artistic peers.

Finally, something good has come from the hatred of the internet!

Talk About A Disaster Film! Gerard Butler Thriller Geostorm Could Lose $100 Million, Making It One Of The Biggest Box Office Bombs Of 2017!

Talk About A Disaster Film! Gerard Butler Thriller Geostorm Could Lose $100 Million, Making It One Of The Biggest Box Office Bombs Of 2017!

no title

Poor Gerard Butler. You’d think he would have been extra careful after the tragedy that was last year’s Gods Of Egypt, but nope — right into another bomb.

Geostorm, Hollywood’s latest big budget global disaster film is also Hollywood’s latest big budget global disaster. With an opening just north of $13 million (which wasn’t even enough to beat Tyler Perry‘s Boo 2), the film has no chance of recouping its estimated $120 mil production budget, not to mention spending on distribution and advertising.

In fact, experts project it will end up losing the studio around $100 MILLION!

At least Gerard has those Olympus Has Fallen and How To Train Your Dragon movies to go back to. (BTW, pre-production has already begun on Angel Has Fallen for 2018 and How To Train Your Dragon 3 for 2019.)

But hey, Geostorm isn’t alone this year. Several other big budget films have flopped hard this year…

$250,000 is going to Joel Osteen‘s Lakewood Church, which as you probably know, was laced up in controversy after its doors were closed for people in need of shelter.

Since then, Joel has opened up shop and made rounds on television hoping to absolve his PR nightmare. And it seems Tyler buys what he’s saying.

Artists whose request was granted? AC/DC, Amy Schumer, Adele, Ariana Grande, Bon Jovi, and the WWE Live Tour.

Every year, there are a TON of award shows that honor the best of the best in movies and film — and thankfully the Razzies also come around annually to give trophies to the worst of the WORST!

While we still won’t know the finalists for the anti-Oscars, known as the Golden Raspberry Awards — Razzies for short — we now have the shameful shortlist of nominees!

Zac Efron made it onto the shortlist for his role in the critically maligned Dirty Grandpa, and Ben Affleck might be a finalist for his role in Batman v Superman! BTW, BvS was nominated in EVERY category except Worst Actress! OUCH!

Hillary Clinton even made the tentative list of nominees… well kind of. The “documentary” Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party received several nominations, including one for Becky Turner, who plays her in the propaganda piece movie. One critic described the movie as “piggybacking a baseless personal attack onto a pseudo history lesson”; we’re sure the real Hillary would LOVE to see this flick named one of the worst.
