It looks like paper or plastic isn't in the script for Geoffrey Owens now that multiple acting projects are checking out. Right after his financial misfortune made the news, Tyler Perry offered him a 10-episode deal on "The Haves and the Have Nots". "He is going to do what he needs to do to support his family", Perry said last week on "GMA".

"What I hope continues to resonate is the idea that one job is not better than another", Owens said earlier.
