Tara Reid Pursuing Carole Baskin Role in One or More ‘Tiger King’ Adaptations


Remember Tara Reid? She was kind of a sex symbol before she became the poster girl from botched plastic surgery.

I mean, he’s not wrong, folks.

Well, Reid, like basically everyone, wants to be in a Tiger King adaptation. Kind of a shame the media cycle this show will be relevant will be completely over by the time these adaptations enter production, much less when they come out. Remember Serial? Can you even name the people that was about?

Page Six reports Reid is in serious talks to play Carole Baskin, but her team is tight-lipped about which production or productions she’s auditioning for.

“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.

I’m sure Reid would do a great job, but I still want to see Julianne Moore play Baskin. It’s right in her wheelhouse.
