Tara Reid in talks to play ‘Tiger King’ star Carole Baskin in upcoming film
Actress Tara Reid may be taking on a new role.
Reid, 44, is in talks to star as Carole Baskin, subject of the Netflix docuseries “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness” in an upcoming movie, her rep confirmed to Fox News.
“I have spoken with producers who are considering Tara for the role in the upcoming production of Tiger King,” said her rep, Philippe Ashfield.
Ashfield continued, saying that Reid — not to be confused with recent Joe Biden sexual assault accuser Tara Reade — “loved” “Tiger King” to be “extremely interesting.”
Additionally, Ashfield said he has spoken with “Netflix who stated they are big fans of Tara Reid.”
“Tiger King” focused on the intense rivalry between Baskin and fellow big cat enthusiast Joe Exotic, which escalated in a murder-for-hire plot against Baskin.
The film is one of many projects in development following the series, which became a viral sensation after it’s release toward the beginning of the coronavirus lockdown.
Projects with Nicolas Cage and Kate McKinnon are being developed, while Rob Lowe has also discussed a potential project with filmmaker Ryan Murphy.
