Comedian David Spade discussed the possibility of playing Tiger King star Joe “Exotic” Maldonado-Passage himself in a film version of Netflix’s hit documentary series # 1, which will air a bonus episode this Sunday.

‘I do not know. It depends. There is [my talk] and there’s free time and all that, “said the 55-year-old sarcastic stand-up in Thursday’s episode of the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“Joe Exotic told me or Brad Pitt. I see Brad Pitt at auditions all the time and it’s always tense… But I think Joe is a little too brainless for Brad, which could be wishful thinking because Brad is so studious. “

Spade was recommended by the 57-year-old ex-caretaker because of the blonde janitor he portrayed in 2001’s Redneck comedy Joe Dirt and his direct video continuation Joe Dirt: Beautiful Loser.

But Edward Norton, Dax Shepard and Kevin Bacon have all expressed interest in siding with the openly gay polygamist – who is serving a 22-year prison sentence for a conspiratorial murder plot, among other crimes.

SNL actress Kate McKinnon is committed to producing and playing Carole Baskin, founder of Joe Nemesis, Big Cat Rescue, in the next small screen adaptation of Robert Moor’s Wondery podcast, Over My Dead Body – according to Deadline.

And Rob Lowe, six-time Golden Globe nominee, has just worked with his 9-1-1 creator: Lone Star, Ryan Murphy, to “develop our version of this crazy story.”

David remotely interviewed John King of Tiger King, Rick Kirkham, Jeff Lowe and Kelci ‘Saff’ Saffery from the Beverly Hills bunker from his talk show Comedy Central Lights Out.

The quadruple Emmy-nominated admitted that animal lovers were horrified to direct the “dark and rough” series of duo Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin, but said “as a character study, it’s fun to watch “.

“I thought it was just a fun idea because it was more fun to think about what the cast would be just for something to do,” noted Spade.

The SNL veteran (1988-1996) suggested that Woody Harrelson play the role of Jeff Lowe, the man who replaced Maldonado-Passage as owner and director of GW Exotic Animal Park in Oklahoma.

Joe’s ex-husband John Finlay told People on Saturday that he wanted Channing Tatum or Shia LaBeouf to play him in a film version.

President Donald Trump even told a reporter for the New York Post on Wednesday that he would “examine” the possibility of forgiving Joe, who ran for president in 2016 and governor of Oklahoma in 2018.
