Writer: Danny McBride/Director: Jared Hess
Let’s be honest, any movie made about Joe Exotic has to be a comedy, and who would be able to depict Joe Exotic in a script better than Danny McBride – the man who wrote Kenny Powers?
Dax Shepard as Joe Exotic
It’s clear he’s got the look down, but if you have ever seen a Dax Shepard role, he definitely knows how to play a… let’s just say “role like Joe Exotic”.
Kate McKinnon as Carole Baskin
Watch Jared Hess’ film Mastermind and tell me Kate McKinnon wasn’t born to play Carole Baskin.
Michael Madsen as Jeff Lowe
Once you’ve seen it, it’s honestly hard NOT to image Jeff Lowe being played by Michael Madsen.
Will Farrell as Doc Antle
Only an actor as out there as Will Farrell could possibly attempt to play all that is Doc Antle.
Shia Labeouf as John Finlay
Sure, I technically had to add the earrings and missing teeth to Shia Labeaouf in Photoshop, but the only thing I would be worried about is Shia taking this role too serious.
Ezra Miller as Travis Maldonado
A troubled youth that deals with drugs and depression? I think I just summed up Ezra Miller’s acting career.
Dave Franco as Dillon Passage
We don’t have much to go off with Dillon Passage but with a star-studded cast like this, why not include a Franco when you get the chance?
Matthew McConaughey as John Reinke
Only a legend like Matthew McConaughey could pull off a legendary role like this.
Tim Blake Nelson as Erik Cowie
Look at this image and try telling me you could see any other actor playing this role. You can’t.
Clark Duke as Joshua Dial
Looks aside, when I watched Tiger King, I was already imaging Clark Duke in this role.
Melissa Villaseñor as Kelci “Saff” Saffery
Since this is a comedy, after all, I think SNL’s Melissa Villaseñor could do justice to the excellent character of Saff.
Ben Mendelsohn as Howard Baskin
If you thought Howard Baskin knew all about Carol’s alleged murder as well, no one can play a manipulative villain quite like Ben Mendelsohn.
Brian Baumgartner as James Garretson
James Garretson is literally just Kevin from The Office with a wig. Also, how great would it be to see him on a jet ski?
Ed Harris as Rick Kirkman
Unfortunately, I think Reverend Kane from Poltergeist II is no longer with us, but I think Rick Kirkman was going for a ‘Man in Black’ thing the whole time anyway.
Creed Bratton as Allen Glover
To be honest, how certain are we that Creed Bratton wasn’t already a hitman?
