The titular character - who is currently serving 22 years for the organising the murder of his longtime rival and multiple wildlife violation charges - was obsessed with stardom, as shown in the hit Netflix series.
But now, the former zoo owner might be getting his time to shine over the radio, at least.
Joe's husband Dillon Passage has revealed that the big cat owner is currently working with broadcasters in the US to get his own radio from behind bars.
"This radio station here in the US wants him to have his own radio show from inside the prison," the 22-year-old told Metro.
"So we'll see what happens with that. It's kind of mind-blowing."
NGL, we'd tune in.
Dillon, who has stayed with his husband despite all of the controversy, also revealed to the outlet that they're currently speaking less frequently since he was moved to Fort Worth Federal Medical Centre in Texas from his prison in Oklahoma in order to isolate due to coronavirus fears.
The Florida residents explained that he used to speak to his husband between three and five times a day - a number that has been cut short since his transfer.
"I've only been able to speak with him two times in the last two and a half week," he said, adding they last spoke on Monday.
"He wishes he could talk more. He doesn't really get phone call privileges mainly because he's still in isolation for the coronavirus stuff," Dillon added. "His test results did come back negative for the virus.
Speaking about his husband's reaction to the documentary which thrown him into global stardom, he said: "I know he absolutely loves the attention. He's got a load of really good feedback, a lot of letters, a lot of emails."
