Sebastian Stan, Lily James To Play Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson in New Hulu Series
The show will explore the turbulent relationship between the rocker and the actress.
Sebastian Stan and Lily James have been cast Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson in a new Hulu limited series. Tommy Lee is the drummer of the infamous multi-platinum hard rock band Mötley Crüe, and Pamela Anderson is an actress best known for her role on Baywatch as well as numerous modeling appearances in Playboy Magazine.
The eight-episode series begins shooting in the spring.
While Lee was very hands on with the making of Netflix's Mötley Crüe biopic The Dirt, neither he nor Anderson are involved in the Hulu series at this time.
The show is set to explore the turbulent relationship between Lee and Anderson. This includes the well-documented incident of a sex tape from their honeymoon that was stolen and released to the public. Seth Rogan (Knocked Up, Pineapple Express, Long Shot) is set to play the man who stole the tape.
Rogan is also producing alongside his partner Evan Goldberg via their Point Grey Productions. Additionally, Dave Franco, Sue Naegle, and Megan Ellison at Annapurna are producing as well as Dylan Sellers at Limelight. Rob Siegel (The Wrestler, The Founder) is the lead writer on the project. Craig Gillespie is set to direct. Sebastian Stan starred in the Tonya Harding biopic I, Tonya which was directed by Gillespie.
Sebastian Stan is set to star in the forthcoming Marvel series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. He will reprise his role as Bucky Barnes, a.k.a. The Winter Soldier, from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Stan has played the role in blockbuster MCU films like Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, and Avengers: Infinity War. Other recent film appearances include Destroyer and The Devil All The Time. On the small screen, he's appeared in series like Kings and Once Upon A Time.
Lily James is undoubtedly a movie star, with prominent roles in films like Baby Driver, Cinderella, Darkest Hour, and Mama Mia! Here We Go Again. On television, she starred in the miniseries War and Peace as well as the Emmy-winning international hit Downton Abbey.
