Here’s a story I never imagined I’d be writing. As revealed by Hulu today, preliminary casting for its upcoming Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee event series has put Lily James and Sebastian Stan as the main stars, respectively. If you’ve been dying to see a different side of the Winter Soldier, I suppose this is your chance.
Sources close to Deadline have stated that James and Stan are all aboard for what Hulu is tentatively titling Pam & Tommy. The series will cover the couple’s rock-and-roll relationship that eventually culminated in one of the most infamous sex tapes ever released. Not only that, but comedian Seth Rogan will be portraying the man who acquired and leaked the sex tape to the public.
Craig Gillespie (I, Tonya) will be directing with Rob Siegel attached to write. Rogan will be producing the series alongside Evan Goldberg through Point Grey, while Dylan Sellers will produce for Limelight with Sue Neagle and Megan Ellison for Annapurna. Pam & Tommy is set to be an eight-episode series that will start shooting in the spring of 2021.
I’m not exactly the biggest Sebastian Stan fan, but I find this kind of hilarious. The series is unlikely to have any kind of hardcore nudity in it, but I don’t think Marvel stans were expecting to ever see Bucky in the buff. Lily James better watch out as she might make Captain America jealous.
