Sic transit

Geoffrey Owens played Elvin Tibideaux (Sondra’s main man) on The Cosby Show for seven seasons. He’s still a working actor, when there’s work. And when there’s not, he bags groceries at Trader Joe’s.

And no, he doesn’t want your sympathy. The average member of the Screen Actors Guild doesn’t earn enough from acting to put food on the table. Ask anyone who’s been there.

    Oddly enough, it was Ray Liotta, a working actor, doing a Chantix commercial that I re-remember how we don’t know what a performer’s situation might be.
