'Joe Exotic' Rounds Out Cast: Kate McKinnon, Nat Wolff and Dennis Quaid Confirmed To Star

Here’s what we know about the ‘Tiger King’-inspired series so far.

Peacock has added several new cast members to its upcoming series Joe Exotic, a dramatization of the colorful zookeepers depicted in Netflix‘s explosive documentary Tiger King.

Set to join Kate McKinnon as divisive cat lover Carole Baskin and John Cameron Mitchell as imprisoned zoo owner Joe Exotic, former Nickelodeon star Nat Wolff will portray Travis Maldonado, Exotic’s late husband. Dennis Quaid has signed on as Rick Kirkham, the journalist-turned-producer of Exotic’s unhinged reality show, and Sam Keeley will play John Finlay, Exotic’s ex-husband. Lastly, Brian Van Holt will play John Reinke, the former zoo manager who lost both of his legs in a bungee jumping accident.

Adapted from a Wondery Podcast of the same name, Joe Exotic will follow Baskin as she learns of Exotic’s tiger zoo and the shady practices he employs. As Baskin attempts to shut his business down, Exotic begins to expose her own spotty past.

Joe Exotic will stream exclusively on Peacock. A premiere date has not yet been announced.
