In the latest piece of Tiger King news, American Pie star Tara Reid is reportedly in talks to play the woman herself Carole Baskin in a Tiger King movie.
Speaking to The Post recently, Reid’s manager Philippe Ashfield said “We are in talks with the producers and she is being considered, that is all I can say at the moment as casting is on hold”.
He added “Tara loves Tiger King and found the documentary extremely interesting. She feels she could get into the character of Carole Baskin very well, and she has a similar look to Baskin.”
It’s not the first piece of Tiger King casting news that’s hit the stratosphere, with acting and meme icon Nicolas Cage being cast as Joe Exotic in a show on the infamous tiger enthusiast. But it’s safe to say we’re definitely hoping to see the American Pie star put her own spin on Baskin in all her infamy.
For now, check out clips of both ladies being interviewed below to get a hint of what to possibly expect from the portrayal.
