Seth Rogen, star and executive producer of Pam & Tommy, has released some first photos from the upcoming Hulu series. The series stars Rogen Rand, the person who stole the couple’s famous sex tape in the 1990s. Lily James and Sebastian Stan also star as Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, respectively. On Friday, Rogen tweeted images of all three characters, and you can check out the photos below.
“My co-stars, Sebastian and Lily, are a lot cooler than me,” Rogen said in the tweet. On Instagram, Stan posted another photo of himself as Tommy Lee, flipping the bird while sitting on the hood of a car. In the caption, Stan quotes the rocker saying, “We don’t stop playing because we get old, we get old because we stop playing.”
On James’s Instagram account, the actress includes the photo of herself as Anderson. Likewise, James quotes Pamela, “It’s great to be blonde. With low expectations, it’s really easy to surprise people.”
The Hulu series is described as a comedic take on the true story behind the release of Pam and Tommy’s sex tape. The series consists of eight episodes and follows the relationship between the Baywatch star and the Motley Crue drummer, who married less than a week after their 1995 meeting. An intimate tape filmed during their honeymoon was stolen and leaked online, and after the couple sued the distributor, a settlement was reached that made the tape available to the public.
Also included in the cast are Nick Offerman (Parks and recreation) as Uncle Miltie; Taylor Schilling (Orange is the new black) as Rand’s wife Erica Gauthier; comedian Andrew Dice Clay as Butchie; Pepi Sonuga (Ash vs. Evil Dead) as Melanie; Mozhan Marno (House of cards) as Gail Chwatsky; and Spenser Granese as Steve Fasanella.
Lily James played the titular role in Disney’s live action Cinderella remake and co-starred with Ansel Elgort in the 2017 hit Baby Driver. She is also known for her roles as Lady Rose MacClare in Downton Abbey and Natasha Rostova in War and peace. More recently she appeared in the British drama The Dig with Carey Mulligan and Ralph Fiennes, who were considered for Outstanding British Film at the British Academy Film Awards.
Meanwhile, Sebastian Stan is very famous for playing Bucky Barnes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He has appeared frequently in Marvel movies for years and has recently reprized the role for the Disney + series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Stan has also appeared in such films as The Martian and Me, Tonya along with roles in the TV shows Gossip Girl, There was once, and Political animals.
The real Anderson and Lee are not involved in the series in any capacity. Written by Rob Siegel and DV DeVincentis, Pam and Tommy is directed by Craig Gillespie (Cruella). Rogen executive produces with Evan Goldberg for Point Gray. Annapurna Television serves as the studio. Hulu hasn’t set a release date for Pam and Tommy. The first images of Pam and Tommy come to us from Seth Rogen on Twitter.
