A First Look At Lily James and Sebastian Stan For Hulu Limited Series ‘Pam & Tommy’
A picture of a tattooed, pierced, and sexy Sebastian Stan alongside a fierce, jaw-dropping leathered Lily James has been breaking the internet since its release. The first look of the iconic couple came from a ‘Pam and Tommy’ Instagram account with a caption that reads, “Here’s a peek at Pam & Tommy, coming to Hulu. Based on the true scandal that started it all, featuring, [Lily James], [Sebastian Stan], and [Seth Rogen]…ready to rewind? #PamAndTommy”.
The Hulu Limited Series will contain eight episodes directed by Craig Gillespie (‘I, Tonya’) working from a screenplay written by Rob Siegel (‘The Founder’) and produced by actor Seth Rogen. The show will follow one of Hollywood’s most iconic couples and the scandal that changed the industry when it came to privacy within a celebrity’s life. Shooting has begun with a few behind-the-scenes photos surfacing of the unrecognizable actors on set. As said on IMDb about ‘Pam & Tommy,’ “Follows the story of their relationship going back to their whirlwind romance that started with them marrying after only knowing each other for 96 hours in 1995.”

Contending with other streaming platforms, Hulu has its fair share of reasonably high-profile original series and feature films such as ‘The Handmaid’s Tale,’ ‘The Act,’ and ‘The Great.’ Without a doubt, the upcoming series ‘Pam & Tommy’ is already amounting to be one of the top contenders as Hulu’s best original series to date.
The Leak Of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s Honeymoon Sex Tape
Lily James will be playing former ‘Baywatch’ star and Playboy model Pamela Anderson while Sebastian Stan will be playing ex-husband and Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee. The scandal comes from when Pamela and Tommy’s sex tape from their honeymoon was stolen and leaked to the public. The man in question who leaked the private video is Rand Gauthier, who will be played by Seth Rogen.
Rogen shared his geeky comparison of a costume design alongside his rocker co-stars with a caption that reads, “My co-stars [Sebastian Stan] and [Lily James] are a lot cooler than I am.” Other actors expected to be seen in the series are Nick Offerman (‘Parks and Recreation’), Taylor Schilling (‘Orange Is the New Black’), Andrew Dice Clay (‘A Star Is Born’), Spencer Granese (‘The Sinner’), and Mozhan Marnò (‘The Blacklist’).
‘Pam & Tommy’ will focus on Pamela and Tommy’s rocky relationship after they famously got married in 1995 after only having known each other for less than a week, even more specifically only 96 hours. Of course, the series will more specifically focus on the release of their honeymoon sex tape that ultimately leads the media industry into a spiral of unhinged policies and culture of a celebrity’s right to privacy.
The leaked honeymoon video was quickly turned into a legal dispute with Pamela suing the video distribution company Internet Entertainment Group. In the end, the couple went with a confidential settlement deal with IEG with the company soon after making the sex tape available to subscribers. The pair divorced in 1998, around the same time Tommy was sent to jail for physically assaulting Pamela.
At this point in time, Pamela and Tommy are not involved in the production of ‘Pam & Tommy,’ but it is said that they are aware of the project.
Lily James and Sebastian Stan Are Unrecognizable
While women and men have been oozing of admiration and love for the sexy look at Sebastian Stan’s new rocker style, the real shock came from the 360 change from the innocent to fierce Lily James. Lily’s background of characters is a range of innocent, quiet, and pure girls, with every single role being a perfection of Lily knowing precisely what that specific character needs. With her recent Netflix drama ‘Rebecca’ and ‘The Dig,’ Lily has taken a significant leap from the audience’s former idea of the type of characters she could bring to the screen.
Lily James posted her new look as Pamela with a caption that reads, “‘It’s great to be blonde. With low expectations, it’s very easy to surprise people. – Pamela Anderson.’” Personally, I am in awe of how unrecognizable Lily is in the first look images as I am only able to see Pamela Anderson. It’s impeccable craftsmanship to pull off the costume, makeup, and attitude that perfectly. Mind you, it’s just a picture, and I’m already sold by her portrayal.

Sebastian Stan and director Craig Gillespie have already worked alongside each other for ‘I, Tonya’ when he played Tonya’s abusive boyfriend. Using ‘I, Tonya’ as a reference, Craig Gillespie has some natural talent that will more than likely be brought to ‘Pam & Tommy.’ The true story portrayal of the ice-skating drama and controversy landed several Oscar nominations. Lately, Sebastian has been busy portraying the Winter Soldier in Marvel’s ‘Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ and his recent romance film ‘Monday.’
The image of the lookalike Pamela and Tommy broke the internet when Sebastian Stan posted the photo onto Instagram along with the caption that reads, “Love Bites.” Sebastian, later on, posted another preview of his hard rocker look with a caption that reads, “‘We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing. – Tommy Lee #mightymousealwaysgetsthegirl’” Believe me when I say, women and men are gushing over Sebastian’s new look of the shirtless and inked rocker. If they weren’t already googly eyeing him before, they are more than ever now.
