Geoffrey Owens lands NCIS: New Orleans gig after Trader Joe's job shaming

New reports claim the hip-hop heavyweight has not pushed forward to financially help former "Cosby Show" actor Geoffrey Owens.

He's said to be on set for just two days and will play Commander Adams, a friend to character Dwayne Pride.

In an interview September 4 on Good Morning America, Owens said he has since quit the position, which he took for its flexibility so he could continue to pursue acting. In the episode, Pride (Scott Bakula) is still emotionally reeling following his brush with death in the season finale/season premiere.

Executive producer Christopher Silber tweeted that he's excited to bring in Owens. "An accomplished actor who seemed like the flawless fit to add to our extended repertory company".

USA Today reports that Owens will appear in 10 episodes. Minaj also called out Karma Lawrence, the woman who took Owens' photo at a Trader Joe's in New Jersey where he was bagging groceries. "We're lucky to have him on the show".
