‘SNL’ Star Kate McKinnon To Play Carole Baskin In ‘Tiger King’ Limited Series
The new Netflix docuseries Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness is one of the most talked-about things on social media. Many fans engaged in a series of speculative discussions online about the series and its centerpiece Joe Exotic. However, the story will not stop with the documentary. Saturday Night Live star Kate McKinnon is reportedly attached to star as Carole Baskin in an upcoming Netflix limited series based on the docuseries.
Baskin is the founder CEO of Big Cat Rescue. The American businesswoman plays a prominent role in the documentary due to her association with Joe Exotic. The true story takes a turn after Exotic’s indictment for attempting to hire someone to murder Baskin in 2018. Moreover, Baskin married millionaire Don Lewis early in her life. However, Lewis disappeared in August 1997. She would have her husband declared legally dead in 2002. Details surrounding this bizarre case led many viewers to believe she had something to do with the disappearance.
McKinnon has been nominated for seven Primetime Emmy Awards, including one for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics and six for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, winning in 2016 and 2017 for SNL. Her impressions of Ellen Degeneres, Hillary Clinton, among others, have endeared her to SNL fans for years. Additionally, the actress has appeared in films like Bombshell in 2019 and 2016’s Ghostbusters reboot.
