Nicolas Cage Will Play 'Tiger King' Joe Exotic In Upcoming Miniseries

Well, ladies and gentlemen, it's the moment we've all been waiting for! Ever since Netflix's Tiger King took over the literal WORLD, people have been speculating on who would play Joe Exotic in the upcoming miniseries.

Over the past few weeks, lots of Hollywood names were thrown around as potential Tiger King's.

Miley Cyrus. Margot Robbie. IDK, some male actors too but I forget as Margot Robbie was obvs my first choice.

Now, the wait is over! The choice has been made! Mr. Nicolas Cage is the people's choice!

Well actually, he was the choice of American Vandal showrunner Dan Lagana, Paul Young (Key & Peele), Imagine Television Studios and CBS TV Studios!

The 8 episode series will be based on the *Texas Monthly* article "Joe Exotic: A Dark Journey Into the World of a Man Gone Wild" by Leif Reigstad.


The show will go to market in just a few days!

Now to be clear, this project is separate from another scripted series announced late last year, starring and executive produced by *Saturday Night Live* queen, Kate McKinnon.

That series is based on the Wondery podcast Joe Exotic.

Is Nicolas Cage a good choice of this role?! Who would you pick if it wasn't him?!
