John Finlay Wants One of These Two Superstars To Play Joe Exotic In a Movie
John Finlay, Joe Exotic’s ex-husband, has pointed out that two of Hollywood’s biggest stars should be playing “Tiger King” if it’s turned into movie.
“Either Shia LaBeouf or Channing Tatum,” Finlay told CNN in an interview on Friday.
After reporter reminded him that his ex-husband hoped that Brad Pitt would play him, Finlay laughed and said: “Brad Pitt, no. Dax Shephard, he would probably be the better choice.”
Finlay, who is remarried, with a whole new set of teeth, said he was disappointed that the docuseries made him look like a “drugged-out hillbilly.”
“Overall, it was good but there were quite a few parts I didn’t agree with,” Finlay said. “They should have done follow-through stories at the end. They made me look like a drugged-out hillbilly. They didn’t even show my new teeth or the actual tattoo finished. There was quite a bit they didn’t even touch on.”
Despite Finlay’s claim that he hasn’t spoken to Joe Exotic in years and “wrote him off,” he admits he did love Joe Exotic.
“I did at one time but you know when you’re around someone every day, everything tends to change,” he said.
