Is there a new cast member coming to The Haves and the Have Nots? Deadline reports Tyler Perry has offered Cosby Show star Geoffrey Owens a role on the OWN TV show.
The primetime soap centers on the complicated dynamic between the rich and powerful Cryer family of Savannah, Georgia and their hired help who work in their opulent mansion. The cast includes Tika Sumpter, Crystal Fox, Renee Lawless, Tyler Lepley, Aaron, Peter Parros, Angela Robinson, Gavin Houston, John Schneider, Brett Davis, Presilah Nunez, and Nick Sagar.
After finding out that Owens (The Cosby Show, The Blacklist, Divorce) was working at a New Jersey grocery store, Perry commended the actor for working between acting jobs and offered him a role on The Haves and the Have Nots.

The OWN series is midway through its fifth season, so it’s unclear if Tyler is referring to shooting the second half of season five or a sixth season.
What do you think? Do you watch The Haves and Have Nots? Would you like to see Geoffrey Owens on the series?
