When quizzed on whether Joe really did sing on his own songs, Rick admitted, "No and it's so funny when you say how he put out new songs - no it's not his voice".

He goes on to add, "It never was his voice. No. The music would come in and he say 'I've got my latest song in today' and I'm like, well when did you record this because I've been with you for six months, day and night, and you haven't left me".

Rick did confirmed however that his team shot a lot of music videos for Joe; "We shot about six or seven music video for him and he would practice very hard to get the lip-sync down but it was just so obvious it wasn't - he didn't know the words to the songs!'

Jimmy went on to quiz who Rick would cast as the people from Tiger King if it were to be re-made into a big Hollywood movie. His answer didn't disappoint...

"You know it's funny, I've been asked that a couple of times as far as Joe and I. I think that David Spade would play an excellent Joe Exotic. David Spade, he could just nail the part".

"People ask about myself and it's funny because there are so many different names, but in the back of my head I think that Billy Bob Thornton, might make a good me."
