Folks, the upcoming film chronically the battle between Joe Exotic and Carole Baskins has cast its Tiger King. In literally the happiest sentence I've ever typed, Nicolas Cage is set to play Joe Exotic in the film, according to Variety.
I have read rumors about Brad Pitt and David Spade potentially playing Joe Exotic before the casting was officially announced earlier today. No offense to those guys, but Cage is the PERFECT choice.
As I type this right now, I am so giddy, just waiting to see Cage with 309 eyebrow piercings singing "Here Kitty Kitty".
This is the kind of casting I think we can all look at the same way we did when Robert Downey Jr was cast as Tony Stark/Iron Man, it is an absolute home run. Like everyone else on the planet, I burned through Tiger King in less than 48 hours, and full disclosure, when I heard there was going to be a scripted movie made about it, I thought it was going to be a shitty movie. However, I have since done a complete 180 and now I absolutely cannot wait. Nicolas Cage is the perfect mix of great acting and bat shit crazy to pull off Joe Exotic.
I don't know when this movie is going to come out, but I can confirm I will be there on opening night, in my tux, prepared to give this movie all of the awards.
