While the internet is abuzz with the discussions about Tiger King, some people are already doing virtual castings for TV adaption. One person thinks Stephen Merchant should play Howard Baskin.

Although he has appeared in numerous TV shows and films, Stephen Merchant is best known for The Office UK

Initially, he started his career with stand-up comedy but thought it was not that easy. In 1997, he met Ricky Gervais and worked as his assistant at XFM London. Thus began their long friendship. In 2001, they both starred in The Office which they co-wrote and co-directed. Later, they both were credited as executive producers for The Office US. Recently, Merchant appeared in Taika Waititi’s film, Jojo Rabbit.

Recently, a Twitter user suggested that Merchant should play Howard Baskin from Tiger King

After the success of Tiger King, there are rumors of its fictional adaption for TV and film. For a limited series, Kate McKinnon has been in talks to play Carole Baskin. However, her husband, Howard Baskin’s character is still up for grabs. Since the show has been released, people are holding virtual castings online. Not only that, but celebrities themselves have also come forward to play one role or another. Similarly, one Twitter user came forward with his choices for Howard Baskin, Joe Exotic, Jeff Lowe and Doc Antle. In a tweet, he mentioned that Stephen Merchant should play Howard Baskin. In response to that, Merchant gave a green signal and said:

I’m in.

While Merchant showed his interest in playing Howard Baskin and the resemblance is uncanny, the Twitter user had other choices as well. In a series of tweets, he shared his suggestions for all the people featured in Tiger King.

His choice for Joe Exotic is Steve Buscemi.

Meanwhile, he thinks Sam Rockwell should play John Finlay.

On the other hand, John Travolta should be playing Doc Antle.

Although there are not many details about the fictional adaption, we are certain that it would be super-hit like the documentary series.
