Tara Reid in talks to star in ‘Tiger King’ movie as Carole Baskin
Forget yet another “Sharknado” sequel — Tara Reid has her eye on “Tiger King.”
The scream queen — back in the spotlight after being confused for Joe Biden’s sex assault accuser Tara Reade — is being considered for the role of Joe Exotic’s nemesis, Carole Baskin, in the live-action movie of the hit Netflix documentary series.
“We are in talks with the producers and she is being considered, that is all I can say at the moment as casting is on hold,” Philippe Ashfield, Reid’s manager and business partner, told The Post.
“Tara loves ‘Tiger King’ and found the documentary extremely interesting. She feels she could get into the character of Carole Baskin very well … and she has a similar look to [Baskin] ,” Ashfield added.
While both women are bottle blondes with big blue eyes, the leopard print-loving Baskin, 58, is more than a decade older than Reid, 44. There are currently several scripted “Tiger King” productions in the works — including a series starring Nicolas Cage as Exotic.
Reid has seen her career bounce back in recent years — she was set to star in the comedy “Tom, Dick & Harry,” also starring Vivica A. Fox, which has been put on hold since the coronavirus pandemic.
