Nicolas Cage To Play Tiger King’s Joe Exotic

Written by JakeJeremy

Hollywood eccentric Nicolas Cage has been revealed as the actor to play Joe Exotic in an upcoming biopic of the Tiger King star.

The Oscar winning star will be playing the newest megastar to come out of the Netflix Documentary revolving door. Exotic is currently serving 22 years in prison for allegedly planning to murder Carole Baskin, a rival zoo owner.

Cage will be starring in an eight-part scripted TV drama. The new show will be based on a 2019 Texas Monthly article called Joe Exotic: A Dark Journey Into The World Of A Man Gone Wild, by Leif Reigstad.

Currently no platform, channel or network has been announced for the new series. Although, there’s a good chance it will end up on Netflix, or Amazon Prime.

Hey, why not National Geographic?
