Hey, all you cool cats and kittens. Did you know there’s a new Tiger King in town? No, it’s not the original Netflix documentary. Or the Nic Cage series. Or the sequel to the original documentary. It’s Peacock’s Joe vs. Carole, and it’s almost here.
Joe vs. Carole revisits the infamous rivalry between two big cat owners, this time with some added star power. In one corner we have Saturday Night Live‘s Kate McKinnon, who steps into Carole Baskin’s leopard print shoes. In the other corner, we have John Cameron Mitchell of Hedwig and the Angry Inch fame, who dons Joe Exotic’s horrifying mullet and distinctive accent. Plus, Kyle Maclachlan appears as Carole’s husband, Howard Baskin. Unfortunately, there’s a tragic lack of footage of McKinnon wearing a flower crown or riding a bicycle in slow-motion. Hopefully, the show amends that error.
