The life of a celebrity is not an easy one. They are constantly chased around by paparazzi, getting their pictures clicked at the worst time possible. Their private is not private anymore. Moreover, few people up to no good are always trying to get inside their personal computers and phones. Some even go as far as to hack their iCloud and steal compromising images. Now this all may sound new, but it has been like this ever since the concept of movie stars/celebrities came into play. And with the fast-evolving technology and internet, it just got that harder. Such is the story of actress Pamela Anderson and drummer Tommy Lee. In this article, we would be talking about the upcoming Hulu mini-series ‘Pam & Tommy’ cast, plot, first-look pictures, all you need to know getting into this series.
Pamela Anderson is an American-Canadian actress widely known for her numerous appearance in the Playboy magazine. Anderson is also famous for her role in Baywatch from 1992-1997. Tommy Lee, on the other hand, is an American musician who plays drums for the heavy metal band Mötley Crüe. He was also one of the founding members of the band. The whole mini-series will be based on these two characters and a scandal following their marriage. The series has been in production for a long time, and it is about time we heard something about it. And don’t worry, that is the exact reason why we are here for. So let us dive into the juicy details of ‘Pam and Tommy’.
‘Pam & Tommy’ Plot And Scandal That Began It All
Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee were together in the year 1995. They both had just known each other for a mere 96 hours (4 days) before they decided to get married. It is crazy, but hey, love is crazy, am I right? They first decided to go to Cancun beach in Mexico. There they got married. Pam’s mother didn’t even know her daughter was married. She came to know about it via People Magazine. During their time as a married couple, Pam was called by the name Pamela Anderson Lee. During their trip to Cancun beach, Mexico, something happened that changed their lives forever. They had made a sex tape of their honeymoon night which got stolen from their house. This resulted in it surfacing on the internet and subsequently became viral.
The plot of the new Hulu mini-series Pam & Tommy is about their life after this big scandal, and the lawsuit followed. After their sex tape went viral on the internet, Pam and Tommy sued the video distribution company Internet Entertainment Group. This will be an eight-episode series whose main focus will be the lawsuit. But that’s not all. The series will also show their life as a married couple and the relationship turmoil caused due to this sex tape. Celebrity sex tapes have become a part of pop culture, and it will be really nice to see how the series would address this problem and tackle it.
‘Pam & Tommy’ Cast And First Look Pictures
To fill in the shoes of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee is a challenge. Pamela Anderson is still considered a sex icon, and it is quite difficult to capture her personality. However, Lily James took up this difficult task, and to be honest, she nailed the look. As you can see from the images below, we can hardly tell her and Pamela apart. In comparison, the role of Tommy Lee is played by our very own Winter Soldier, Sebastian Stan. And god, he is perfect for this role. He looks exactly like Tommy in the first look that was revealed by Hulu. As you know, Tommy Lee has a very outgoing personality, whereas Sebastian’s previous role as Winter Soldier was quite plain and stoic of sorts. It would be fun to see how these two perform the roles assigned to them.
Talking about other cast members, we have Seth Rogen as Rand Gauthier, the man who stole the sex tape. We also got Nick Offerman as Uncle Miltie. He is shown as the big shot in the adult film industry. Rand Gauthier seeks his help in distributing the sex tape that he stole. Next, we have Taylor Schilling playing the role of Erica Gauthier. She is the wife of Rand Gauthier and also a part of the adult film industry. She never tried to hide that fact and was always open about it. Even after her divorce from Rand, she still was friends with him and often seemed to care about him. These are the main cast for the upcoming Hulu mini-series. The rest all are the recurring cast for the same.
Final Thoughts & Expectations
The case of Pam and Tommy is quite twisted. This was probably the first-ever celebrity sex tape to ever be leaked on the internet. After which followed the trend of leaking more and more compromising photos and videos of the celebrities. However, in the case of Pamela Anderson, she left very little to the imagination as she had already appeared in numerous Playboy covers. But still, having a part of your own private life that you wished to be private leaked on the internet is not such a great thing. There are many celebrities whose lives have been destroyed because of such incidents, whereas there are some who have gained quite a lot of fame and attention and are not at all bothered by it.
My expectations for this series are quite high. This biographical piece is surely one of the historical moments in the era of the internet. This series will show the struggles that the couple had to go through just to get that video taken down from the internet. This also had very dire consequences in their relationship. If you know about their relationship, you also know that Tommy had to go to prison because he assaulted/hit Pamela Anderson, and she filed charges against him. It will be a really great experience to witness all these events in the form of episodic installments rather than one long movie. I am super excited about this new Hulu mini-series, are you?
