Variety reports that Nicolas Cage has landed the role of Joe Exotic in an upcoming television series that will be a spinoff on Netflix’s acclaimed TV series Tiger King.

Nicolas Cage has over the years accumulated a pretty diverse cast and I have a hard time seeing anyone who fits better as the slightly eccentric and egotistical Joe Exotic. The upcoming TV series will be based on a report in Texas Monthly entitled Joe Exotic: A Dark Journey Into the World of a Man Gone Wild.

This will also be Nicolas Cage’s first role in a television series. When we can see Cage and the upcoming Tiger King series, there is so far no information on it.
