Ex-'Cosby' actor photographed bagging groceries at Trader Joe's

Before “The Cosby Show” ended in 1992, actor Geoffrey Owens played the character Elvin Tibideaux on NBC’s hit comedy series for five seasons. He’s continued working through the years as an actor but, as is the case in most creative industries, actors often do many other jobs to make ends meet. This is not news. Owens was seen a few days ago working in a Clifton, N.J., Trader Joe’s by a shopper who recognized the actor, then was compelled to take a photo of him.
