The Tiger King hit Netflix on March 20th. By March 30th there were 35 million streams of it, meaning about 100 million people had watched! It's the hottest thing in pop culture this year! So now a TV show will be shot.
“Joe Exotic: A Dark Journey Into the World of a Man Gone Wild,” by Leif Reigstad will be an 8 part mini series on CBS. According to Variety Magazine the man hired to play Joe Exotic is Nicolas Cage!
This will be Cage’s first time in a regular TV role.
I can think of several stars that I would have rather seen in the Joe Exotic role. If we're going big budget then Matthew McConaughey or Woody Harrelson. I've been watching their show True Detective and they are both amazing actors who can do wonders with a wig. Speaking of a wig if we're on a budget lets get the original Joe, Joe Dirt aka David Spade. Rob Lowe actually made a video basically begging to be cast.
Do you like Nicolas Cage in the role?
