‘Pam & Tommy’ First Look: Sebastian Stan And Lily James Are The Infamous Celebrity Couple In Hulu’s Event Series

Only Sebastian Stan can say he’s the right guy to play both a young Luke Skywalker, and MÖTLEY CRÜE member Tommy Lee. A few months after we learned Stan would be starring alongside Lily James in Hulu’s Pam & Tommy series, about the infamous celebrity couple, we have our first look at them and they are, in a word: Perfect.

James, in particular, is virtually unrecognizable as the Baywatch and Barb Wire babe. But don’t sleep on Stan, who is clearly having nipple-piercing fun as Lee.

The six-episode series will center on the notorious sex tape that brought the issue of celebrity and privacy rights to the national discussion. I would say it was also the birthplace of Internet celebrity, and gave rise to a whole host of people who got famous simply for being in sex tapes that were largely seen online.

The cast includes Nick Offerman, Taylor Schilling, Andrew Dice Clay, Pepi Sonuga, Spencer Granese, and Mozhan Marnò. Seth Rogen also has a role, along with co-creating the series with Evan Goldberg. Craig Gillespie, known for helming I, Tonya and Disney’s upcoming Cruella film, will direct from a script by The Wrestler writer Robert Siegel.
