    Give me your suggestions for who should play who in the inevitable feature length film. Mine would be Joaquin Phoenix as Joe Exotic, Jeff Bridges as Doc Antle and Kathy Bates as Carole Baskin.

    Bradley Cooper as Joe Exotic

    Shelley Long as Carole Baskin

    Harry Styles as Travis

    Seth Rogan as Doc Antle (wish it could be the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman)

    Damn some great choices. I think Styles as Travis would be very inspired casting.

    I just started watching so I’ll try to think of some names later, but apparently there’s already plans to adapt it into two different limited series, one produced by Kate McKinnon where she’s set to star as Carole Baskin, and another produced by Ryan Murphy where there’s talk of Rob Lowe playing Joe Exotic. Neither of those casting ideas sound very good to me. McKinnon feels like she’s become more of a one note and often too over the top of a performer over time, while I seriously struggle to see Lowe making a transformation into exotic, and I feel like you need someone who can really change themselves to become a man who’s become so cemented in pop culture by this documentary.

    Currently in episode 2, and I just realized that if a movie is gonna happen, Adam McKay should write and direct it. The ridiculousness of the story feels like one of his earlier films, and I feel like he could bring a style similar to The Big Short to this. Just as long as he keeps Will Ferrel from playing Joe Exotic. I’m currently going through a few names for the role, and I could see Christian Bale, Viggo Mortensen, Michael Shannon, or Joaquin Phoenix playing Exotic.

    Daniel Day Lewis could also do it, but if he’s coming out of retirement (which I think he will eventually), I don’t see it being for Tiger King.
