Lily James’ transformation to Baywatch star Pamela Anderson continues to amaze us, with recent footage of the actress wearing the iconic red bathing suit, undoubtedly making us all double take. James was spotted filming the upcoming Hulu series Pam & Tommy, in which she will co-star with Marvel actor Sebastian Stan, and it looks like the Baby Driver star will recreate some of Anderson’s most memorable moments from the hit beach set series.
Pamela Anderson starred in Baywatch from 1992 to 1997, with the role that raised her to a superstar. The series explored the lives and adventures of a group of lifeguards patrolling the beaches of Los Angeles County, California. Led by David Hasselhoff, the series became a huge hit, but also a staple of popular culture, thanks in no small part to Anderson’s presence on the show.
Pam and Tommy will the marriage between Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee after the release of their unauthorized infamous sex tape that was recorded privately on their honeymoon. For those who may be too young to remember the scandal, or even those who just stay away from anything celebrity related, the incredibly private tape was stolen by a disgruntled electrician named Rand Gauthier. After being fired, Gauthier had returned hoping to collect his tools, but claims Tommy Lee threatened him with a shotgun and ordered him to leave the premises. A few months later, Gauthier returned and stole a safe containing the infamous sex tape, and, using his contacts in the adult industry, teamed up with friend Milton Ingley to make copies and sell them online for about $ 60 dollars. Although it is not exactly a robbery Ocean 11 proportions, the incident turned out to be a huge scandal, dominating the headlines for some time.
While this event will star in the series, the series will also focus on the famed couple’s whirlwind relationship, starting with their 1995 wedding, which took place after the couple had only known each other for 96 hours. The leaked VHS tape became quite a legal dispute, with Pamela Anderson first filing a $ 10 million lawsuit against the video distribution company Internet Entertainment Group, before finally handing over the copyright to Club Love founder Seth Warshavsky, who later struck a deal with Vivid Entertainment to legally sell physical copies of the movie on DVD, VHS, and even CD-ROM.
The wrestler and The founder Writer Rob Siegel on board to write the eight-episode miniseries, with me, Tonya director Craig Gillespie on board to lead the project. Lily James isn’t the only one who has undergone an unrecognizable transformation for her role on the series, with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’s Sebastian Stan strips away much of his size (and shirt) to play Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee.
The series was developed by Seth Rogen and his buddy and frequent collaborator Evan Goldberg who will produce through Point Gray. Rogen also stars as Rand Gauthier and has also undergone his own transformation process, which simply consisted of shaving off his beard. This comes from Daily Mail.
