Tony Award winner John Cameron Mitchell cast as Joe Exotic



Tony Award winner John Cameron Mitchell has been cast as Tiger King's Joe Exotic in the upcoming self-titled miniseries. He joins Kate McKinnon who was cast as Carole Baskin.

“I’m thrilled to take on the role of this modern folk antihero,” Mitchell said in a statement. “Joe and I are the same age and like him, I grew up queer in Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas so I feel like I know a little bit about this guy and his desperate attempt to conquer an inhospitable world.”

This is not the only series based off Joe Exotic; Nicolas Cage was previously cast for an Amazon-produced adaptation.
