SNL’s Kate McKinnon set to play Carol Baskin in ‘Tiger King’ TV Series


Kate McKinnon has played many roles on her years on ‘Saturday Night Live’ and has been able to fully dive into her roles but her next role is going to be a pretty wild one. McKinnon is set to produce an adaption of the show into a scripted series where she will also play Carol Baskin. If the scripted version is nearly as a good as this real life doc, it’s going to be amazing.

With everyone spending more time at home due to quarantines, the docuseries about the crazed Joe Exotic, his hippie nemesis Baskin, and weird world of exotic animal owners has blown up in the past week so the real life story has already garnered the call of an adaption into a series. If you have not seen it, it’s a must see! Collider broke it down in this extensive review.

If anyone is up for the role of Joe Exotic, may we suggest our very own Justin from the KQX Morning Crew.
