My, oh my. Nicolas Cage has just been cast to play Joe Exotic, and this is the first thing that’s made this much sense in a while.
According to Variety, the 56-year-old National Treasure actor will play the “Tiger King” in an upcoming eight-episode scripted series based on “Joe Exotic: A Dark Journey Into the World of a Man Gone Wild,” the Texas Monthly article by Leif Reigstad.
This is a different scripted series than the one Kate McKinnon is attached to, where she’ll star as Carole Baskin.
o much Tiger King content, so little time, amirite?
The series will follow a similar plot to the Netflix docuseries: Joe Exotic fighting to keep his park open by any ~eccentric~ means necessary.
No word yet on who will star alongside Nick or when the series will come out, but I’ll definitely be watching!
What do you think about the casting?
