Carole Baskin probably won’t be tuning into Amazon’s forthcoming Tiger King TV series – despite her “favourite actor” Nicolas Cage landing the starring role.
“He is such a favourite actor of mine, and I just don’t know if I can even watch him after seeing that role,” she tells U.S. TV show Extra.
Of her hopes for the show, she shares: “For me, it’s not what people think about me from ‘Tiger King,’ even though I was grossly misportrayed as a villain, but what I am hoping people get from this is the message of what was missed in ‘Tiger King,’ that the animals are being exploited and abused — and we need to stop that.”
This week, Exotic submitted a 257-page case to Trump, alleging he’s been mistreated and sexually assaulted behind bars, in a bid to be pardoned from his sentence – but Baskin, who appears on the new season of Dancing With the Stars, is doubtful of his chances.
“I just can’t imagine that would be good for anybody’s political campaign,” she adds.
