Sebastian Stan shared another glimpse at one of his costumes as Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee in the upcoming Hulu limited series Pam & Tommy.
A new photo posted from Sebastian Stan shows the actor on the set of Pam & Tommy wearing an apron reading “Kiss da Cook.” The Falcon and the Winter Soldier actor is playing Tommy Lee opposite Lily James’s Pamela Anderson in the upcoming miniseries from Hulu about the celebrity couple’s marriage. Previous photos posted to the actors’ Instagram accounts have shown their transformations into the Mötley Crüe drummer and Baywatch star, with James, particularly wowing fans with her metamorphosis.
Anderson and Lee married in 1995 after knowing each other for only four days. Their whirlwind romance made numerous headlines, including ones about Anderson’s unorthodox wedding ceremony attire (a bikini) and later, the theft and unauthorized release of a sex tape made during their honeymoon. In 1998, the actress filed for divorce following Lee’s arrest for physically assaulting Anderson, who held one of their children. Lee was charged with felony spousal battery and pleaded no contest. His sentencing requirements included enrolling in counseling and rehabilitation programs and being banned from contacting Anderson.
Sebastian Stan posted a photo of himself posing on a production lot in costume as Tommy Lee, sporting a novelty apron reading “Kiss da Cook.” This post comes two weeks after the actor shared a video of himself twirling a drumstick, also in costume. Comedian and actor Seth Rogen also posted several behind-the-scenes shots of himself as Rand Gauthier, the former porn actor who leaked Anderson and Lee’s sex tape. With a five o’clock shadow instead of his usual full beard, Rogen reminded fans how different he looked a decade ago when he was still rocking a clean-shaven look.
Stan and James certainly seem to be having fun on set, but others are not happy with the production. Hulu is billing the show, directed by I, Tonya and Cruella director Craig Gillespie, as “a comedic limited series on the true story behind the release of the first-ever viral video in history—the sex tape of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee.” Whether the infamous sex tape was the first-ever viral video in history is highly debatable. Still, it is irrefutable that much of Anderson and Lee’s relationship was anything but comedic. Courtney Love, a rock icon and longtime friend of Anderson’s, wrote in a since-deleted post on Facebook that the show’s premise was the cause of further “complex trauma” for Anderson. Anderson is yet to release a statement on Love’s comments or the series itself.
The aesthetics of celebrity and rock and roll tend to translate well onscreen, and Lee and Anderson always delivered vivid, photogenic looks together. But biographical films with a heavy reliance on aesthetics often gloss over the uglier details that can pull viewers out of the film’s world. Pam & Tommy may very well tackle other elements of the couple’s lives, like Lee’s abusive behavior and the accusations towards him of racism and antisemitism. Still, thus far, the promotion of the series has focused almost entirely on the more superficial aspects, which are admittedly much more accessible to convey via Instagram. Where the show fails and where it succeeds will be much clearer after it airs.
