The King is back! The limited series coming out about “Tiger King” is still in the works and they’ve finally selected the lead actor who will play Joe Exotic. Texas native John Cameron Mitchell has landed the role.

Mitchell, who grew up as a gay man in Texas, says he’s “thrilled to take on the role of this modern-day antihero.”
The hilarious Kate McKinnon -who I love – will also be in the film as Carol Baskin. Look for the limited series to air on NBC, Peacock, and USA Network.
