People are getting their first look at Sebastian Stan and Lily James as they transform into the infamous and scandalous Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson.
Hulu has released some behind-the-scenes, first-look photos before “Pam and Tommy” is available to stream. The show is a limited event series and will focus on Lee and Anderson and their tumultuous relationship.
Sebastian Stan and Lily James as Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson
The series will explore the scandal that emerged after the couple’s sex tapes were stolen as well. It is often considered the first viral video in history. Anderson is most known for “Baywatch” and “Home Improvement.” Meanwhile, Tommy Lee is Mötley Crüe’s longtime drummer. The couple was a tabloid favorite even before their honeymoon tape was stolen from them, causing a state of media disarray during the ’90s. The couple got married after knowing each other for 96 hours in 1995.
Stan and James recently posed together to recreate an iconic photo of the couple. The duo is recreating a photo in which Tommy Lee is shirtless and Pamela Anderson is tugging on his nipple ring with her mouth.
The casting of the comedic show has gotten wide praise so far. Not only does the show have two popular and successful Hollywood actors, but they also have a resemblance to Lee and Anderson. Sebastian Stan is most known for his role as the Winter Soldier in the Marvel Universe. He currently is one half of “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” on Disney+. Lily James is known for “Cinderella,” “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again,” and “Baby Driver.”
Casting and Production of ‘Pam and Tommy’
Acing alongside the duo will be Seth Rogen, who is playing Rand Gauthier, the man who stole and then sold the sex tape. Also in the show will be Nick Offerman, Taylor Schilling, Andrew Dice Clay, Pepi Sonuga, Spencer Granese, and Mozhan Marnò.
According to Indie Wire, both Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson have no affiliation with the show. Their relationship ended with a spousal abuse arrest in 1998, but it’s unclear how deeply the show will delve into the very dark side of the couple’s romance. The show is written and produced by Robert Siegel and DV DeVincentis. Craig Gillespie will be the director and also an executive producer. He is most known for directing “I, Tonya.”
Sebastian Stan also posted a photo dressed and posing as Tommy Lee on his Instagram account. He captioned it with a famous line from the drummer, “We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.”
Similarly, Lily James posted a photo donning a Pamela Anderson makeover. She wrote a famous quote of Anderson, “It’s great to be blonde. With low expectations, it’s very easy to surprise people.”
According to Variety, it’s unclear exactly when the iconic couple will grace Hulu. “Pam and Tommy” was ordered to series in December 2020. Hulu is also working on a series that focuses on boxing legend, Mike Tyson. While Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson seem to be okay with their series, Tyson has not expressed that same feeling. He said the series was “inappropriate” and “tone-deaf.”
