It is not an official offer yet, but we definitely are very close." Tara (who's been locked down with none other that Jedward amid the ongoing pandemic) admitted that she does have a few fears if she ends up in the movie, though. I don't really like tigers. I loved doing Sharknado because [the sharks] were fake," she said. It's already been reported that there's an eight-episode scripted series based on the show coming to TV, with Nicholas Cage taking on the role of the infamous Joe Exotic.

While there was a lot to unpack after watching the Netflix docuseries, a lot of people put their focus on Baskin and her own story. In truth, there could be a whole docuseries solely focused on Baskin, the archnemesis of Joe Exotic.
Though it has never been officially proven, a lot of people believe that Baskin had something to do with the disappearance of Don Lewis back in 1997. Mr. Exotic goes as far as claiming that she killed Lewis and fed him to her tigers. Now, Joseph Fritz, former attorney and friend to Don Lewis is coming forward with new information about the case, and it doesn't look good for Carole Baskin. Fritz believes the signatures on legal documents giving Baskin control of Lewis' assets if something were to ever happen to him are forged. He also believes that Baskin was the one to forge the signature, which is something else that has been widely speculated since Tiger King aired. In a new interview, Joseph Fritz went on to discuss the forgery, noting, "Somebody sat at my office and had the pictures and was able to lay one over the other on their cellphone and they are a perfect match." He went on to say that he believes Don Lewis was murdered. Forensic document examiner and handwriting expert Thomas Vastrick took a look at the signatures and he too believes they were forged. "In conducting the examination of the durable family power of attorney and the will, both of which were created on Nov. 21 in 1996, I was struck by the uncanny similarity between each set of signatures. It was nearly exact replication to the extent that I was very confidently able to opine that what I was dealing with - at least with Mr. Lewis' signature - that these signatures were traced." Not all signatures are exactly the same each time, even if the person has been signing it that way for their whole life. There are usually some minor to major changes from signature to signature, which is why the Don Lewis family power of attorney and will are so suspect. Carole Baskin has yet to respond to the latest allegations, but she more than likely will in the coming days. Tampa's Hillsborough County Sheriff, Chad Chronister, recently called out tips from people who may have information about Don Lewis' disappearance. Chronister thinks the popularity of Tiger King may lead to some new information that could implicate Carole Baskin. Baskin has maintained her innocence for over 20 years now and claims Don Lewis just disappeared one day. The interview with Joseph Fritz was originally conducted by Fox News.

"Tiger King" star Carole Baskin is selling facemasks with her signature saying, "Hey all you cool cats and kittens." You can now protect yourself from the coronavirus, and show your support for Baskin's tiger sanctuary. The animal rights activist's signature saying was popularized after the Netflix series "Tiger King." See the masks, below, modeled by Baskin: A third-party website that is selling the masks alongside Baskin called them "the PURRRRFECT face mask." And, "A portion of all Cool Kittens face mask proceeds goes directly to support the big cats." The mask currently goes for $11 in the shop. "Big cats" that are privately owned, like those previously owned by Tiger King star Joe Exotic, and cared for by Carole Baskin, are in danger across the United States. According to Animal Welfare Institute, "Unscrupulous facilities profit from cub petting or photo opportunities, which fuels a rampant and vicious cycle of breeding and dumping cubs once they are 12 weeks old. Having outgrown their usefulness, these cubs are funneled into the exotic pet trade, sold to another disreputable exhibitor, or end up in the black market trade for wildlife parts." To help these animals, help us persuade Congress to pass the Big Cat Public Safety Act, to protect big cats from these terrible circumstances.

A tentative answer came on Thursday when actress Tara Reid confirmed to US Weekly that she is currently in talks for the coveted role. "We're definitely in major conversations and working out the things — the offers and this and that so, let's see what happens," she dished to the magazine. "I would love to play this character. While casting for the part is still underway, the Sharknado alum stated that she intends to spend time with Baskin should she land the role. "I would definitely want to spend a week with her — not to ask her anything, to see how she eats, s****, see how she plays, see if she talks to people. It'd be more for me to study, just to get her vibe," the 44-year-old revealed. Baskin, who is the current CEO of Big Cat Rescue, became a household name for her appearance in Netflix's bizarre series Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness. Mainly, fans are convinced she murdered her millionaire ex-husband due to an offhanded remark she muttered about the likelihood of tigers eating a human. "Just cover them in sardine oil or something they want to eat, should do the trick," she famously said on camera. As for Exotic, born Joseph Schreibvogel, he was found guilty for hatching a murder-for-hire plot against Baskin and is currently serving a 22-year sentence.
