US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he would "take a look" at the case of a former zoo owner known as Joe Exotic, the focus of the hit Netflix documentary series "Tiger King".

Meanwhile, reports suggesting that Joe contracted coronavirus in his prison cell have also turned out to be false.

'Tiger King' that launched last month on Netflix introduces people to big cat industry in the US and former zoo owner Joe Exotic and his bitter rival, animal rights activist Carole Baskin.

There are also talks of a film adaptation of the Netflix docuseries. Expressing his views on the matter, Joe had said that he wanted Brad Pitt or David Spade to play him in the movie. 

Amid talk of a full movie, Joe's husband has also shared his thoughts on who would play him in a Joe Exotic movie.

 According to Digital Spy, Dillon Passage is aiming high and wants Zac Efron to play him.
