Tiger King Joe Exotic Has His Own Thoughts On Who Should Play Him

Joe Exotic from Tiger King on Netflix has his own thoughts on who should play him. He said to Netflix that Brad Pitt or David Spade would be the perfect person to play the part. While many people raise an eyebrow at the sexy and charming Brad Pitt playing Joe Exotic in Tiger King, they should remember his scruffy roles in both True Romance and Kalifornia.

Brad Pitt might have to do a little scruffing up fans say, but maybe he could take on the part.

As far as David Spade, that isn’t as far of a reach for viewers since he’s played Joe Dirt. Maybe it’s time for David to play another mullet-loving Joe after all.
