Nicolas Cage's Joe Exotic Series Goes to Amazon, Carole Baskin Reacts!

It was previously announced that Nicolas Cage will be playing the role of Joe Exotic in an upcoming series about the Tiger King star. Now, it has been revealed that Amazon Studios has signed on to help develop the show!

Variety reports that the series will be based on an article about Joe Exotic that was featured in Texas Monthly.

The story “centers around Joe Shreibvogel (Cage), a.k.a. Joe Exotic, an eccentric exotic zookeeper in Oklahoma who fights to keep his park — even at the risk of losing his sanity. The series will live in the lion’s den with Joe, explore how he became Joe Exotic, and how he lost himself to a character of his own creation.”

Carole Baskin, who is Joe Exotic‘s real-life rival and another star of Tiger King, is opening up about Cage playing the role.

She told Extra, “He is such a favorite actor of mine, and I just don’t know if I can even watch him after seeing that role.”

You’ve gotta see what Carole is up to right now!
