“Joe vs. Carole is an exciting journey. It’s an entertaining and rich trip through the life of two people living extreme lives. When I began this project just one and half years ago, I discovered Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin to be captivating. This bizarre story of two big cat lovers quickly turned into an important story to tell. I’m hoping that when viewers watch Joe against Carole, perhaps they will discover the characters they believed were familiar with in a fresh manner,” Frankel said in an announcement.
“We knew that it would require two exceptional performers to play these larger-than-life individuals as the intricate and three-dimensional people they are. John Cameron Mitchell is one of the most skilled and thoughtful actors I’ve worked with. He is so devoted to the project in addition. His acting is stunning,” the creator, showrunner, writer, and executive producer said. “And Kate McKinnon is amazing. She can cause us to double over in laughter one minute and make us cry next. It was thrilling to see these two amazing actors change into their roles.”
