Nicolas Cage will be assuming the role of Joe Shcreibvogel, also known as Joe Exotic, in a new Netflix docuseries. Joe Exotic who may not be liked by everyone but has definitely caught almost everyone’s attention.
Netflix is looking at having a follow-up series of Tiger King consisting of eight episodes. The docuseries will be jointly produced by Imagine Television Studios and CBS Television Studios and is largely based on the 2019 Texas Monthy article “Joe Exotic: A Dark Journey Into the World of a Man Gone Wild,” by Leif Reigstad.
The series explores how Joe became Joe Exotic – the unconventional, exotic zookeeper in Oklahoma who pushed past all limits of his sanity because he wanted to keep his park. Joe Exotic was sentenced in January 2020 to 22 years in prison for his part in a murder-for-hire plot and animal abuse.
This will be Nicolas Cages’s first regular television role, as we most know him from his roles played in “Leaving Las Vegas” where he won the Acadamy Award for best actor, as well as “Adaptation“, “Ghost Rider” and many other films.
More recently Cage was involved in doing a voice over for “Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse.” Cage will also be an executive producer for the docuseries. Now its time for Cage to be king of the tigers in this live-action adaptation.
Most fans are excited by this news, but not everyone is.
The expression “If all your friends jumped off a bridge, would you also?” should be amended to “If all your friends watched Tiger King, should you care?” and ” Friends don’t let friend watch Nicholas Cage play Tiger King”

Many think that we should not be recreating an animal abuser’s life and sharing such a dark journey.
Even Jimmy Fallon has gotten in on the hype with his own re-enactment of Nicolas Cage rehearsing as his newest character Joe Exotic.
