It’s CULTED with your 60-second NEWS BLAST.
A new scripted series based on the Netflix docuseries Tiger King is in the works and the man they’ve picked to play Joe Exotic might surprise you…
Joe has been praised as a style icon after his loud outfits and bold aesthetic stood out on screen.
According to Variety, the equally meme-worthy Nicolas Cage is set to play Joe in the 8 episode mini-series.
The series explores how Joe Schreibvogel came to be known as cultural icon ‘Joe Exotic’ and lost himself in the role of eccentric zookeeper.
We of course know Cage from his big budget movies but this will be the first regular television role of his career.
Although the series is a spin-off of Tiger King, it will actually be based on the Texas Monthly article ‘Joe Exotic: A Dark Journey Into the World of a Man Gone Wild,’ by Leif Reigstad.
The series is set to be shopped by networks in the coming days.
Will you be tuning in when it airs?
