Tiger King Movie Cast odds launched!

A Tiger King movie is reportedly in the works and Kevin Bacon is the bookmakers’ favourite to be cast as Joe Exotic.

Tiger King has been a massive hit since it was released on Netflix in late March 2020, with over 34 MILLION watching it in the first ten days of release and as a result making it one of Netflix’s biggest hits to date.

The success of the documentary miniseries has led to talk of a movie and William Hill make Kevin Bacon the 4/1 favourite to be cast as the star of the series, zookeeper Joe Exotic.

Billy Bob Thornton and Edward Norton are next in the betting at 5/1, ahead of David Spade at 6/1.

The Netflix series focuses on the small but interconnected society of big cat conservationists like Carole Baskin, owner of Big Cat Rescue, and collectors such as Exotic.

Following the series' release, Baskin has become an internet sensation, with memes related to the disappearance of her second husband, Don Lewis, flooding social media.

In the early betting on who will be cast as Carole, Allison Janney is the current 5/2 favourite ahead of Laura Linney and Jessica Lange.
