Lily James and Sebastian Stan to Play Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee in Hulu Limited Series Pam & Tommy
By Andy Swift



One of the biggest couples in Hollywood history is getting the small screen treatment.

Lily James (Downton Abbey) and Sebastian Stan (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier) have been cast as Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee in an eight-episode Hulu limited series about the duo’s salacious relationship in the 1990s — including the leak of their private honeymoon video and the legal battle that ensued — our sister site Deadline reports. The series is currently titled, what else, Pam & Tommy.

For those readers too young to appreciate the cultural — or at least pop-cultural — significance of this series, here’s a brief history lesson: Anderson was arguably the biggest sex icon of the ’90s, starring in decade-defining TV shows like Baywatch. And Lee was essentially rock royalty, a founding member of the legendary heavy metal band Mötley Crüe. Their high-profile relationship, which included a marriage after just a few days of officially dating, kept tabloids in business for years. (If your next question is “What’s a tabloid?” just save it. We feel old enough as it is.)

Seth Rogen, who is producing alongside Evan Goldberg and Dylan Sellers, has also reportedly been cast as the man who stole Anderson and Lee’s honeymoon tape. I, Tonya director Craig Gillespie is also attached. Anderson and Lee are not involved with the limited series, but the former couple is reportedly aware of its production.

I don't know Lily James, so I had to look up if she has the "attributes" to resemble Pam Anderson.
They are definitely going to have to put her in outfits to squeeze them into looking bigger.

That's what prosthetics are for. I imagine that the team who got Emmy Rossum to play Angelyne will be involved.

‘Pam & Tommy’: Nick Offerman Joins Hulu Limited Series

By Nellie Andreeva

Nick Offerman has been tapped to co-star opposite Lily James, Sebastian Stan and Seth Rogen in Pam & Tommy, Hulu’s limited series based on the true story behind the release of the first ever viral video in history — the sex tape of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee.

In the Anapurna-produced project, which stars James and Stan as the famous celebrity couple, Offerman will play Uncle Miltie. Big and burly, this legendary prolific porn impresario brings his larger-than-life stature into the workplace to keep things lively and real. “The money guy,” Uncle Miltie helps Rand (Seth Rogen) distribute the sex tape. A borderline sociopath, he treads along a line between humorous and horrific.

Pam & Tommy was written by Rob Siegel and will be directed by Craig Gillespie. The two executive produce the series with Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver and Alex McAtee via Point Grey; James Franco, Dave Franco and Vince Jolivette via Ramona; Megan Ellison, Sue Naegle and Ali Krug via Anapurna as well as DV DeVincentis, Chip Vucelich, Dylan Sellers and Sarah Gubbins.

Parks and Recreation alum Offerman recently co-starred on FX on Hulu’s limited series Devs and is member of the voice cast for new Fox animated series The Great North. He is repped by UTA and Jackoway Austen Tyerman.
