“Tiger King” star Carole Baskin certainly has plenty of enemies.
But Richard Kind, who’s set to appear in a musical video parody that delves into whether Carole attempted to kill her second husband, admires her.
“There are people I want dead right now, I’m not gonna murder them. She did something about it. She was proactive,” said Kind, who’ll play her current husband, Howard, in Tony-nominated composer Andrew Lippa’s “Tiger King: The Musical (A Parody!).”
The ongoing spoof has so far starred Frankie Grande and Kristin Chenoweth in online home videos as singing “Tiger King” characters during the lockdown.
Kind thinks Bette Midler would also make a great Carole. Nicolas Cage is starring in a planned TV miniseries version of “Tiger King,” and Kind said, “There is an element of bizarreness [about Cage] that I think intersects with Joe Exotic.”
Kind also starred in the recent movie “The Social Ones,” about social-media “influencers,” but he admitted, “I joke that I had children because I needed tech support.”
