Tiger King's John Finlay Wants Channing Tatum or Shia LaBeouf to Play Him in Film Adaptation



Finlay is the ex-husband of Joseph Maldonado-Passage (best known as Joe Exotic as well as the Tiger King), who is the disgraced zookeeper at the center of the seven-episode series. The stranger-than-fiction true story is set to be made into a Hulu limited series starring Kate McKinnon, though other roles have yet to be cast.

The Netflix docuseries’ filmmakers Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin recently revealed which big-name celebrities Maldonado-Passage, 57, (who’s currently in prison) has in mind for bringing his own eccentric persona on-screen.

“He would like Brad Pitt or David Spade to play him,” Chaiklin recently told The Hollywood Reporter, adding, “He doesn’t refer to David Spade as David Spade — he refers to him as ‘Joe Dirt.’ ”

Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness is now available to stream on Netflix.
