PAM & TOMMY Trailer 2 (2022)
Baywatch star Pamela Anderson and Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee famously got married after knowing each other for just 96 hours.
As many would expect, this set the stage for a turbulent relationship.
What the public seemed not to expect is that Lily James will play Pamela Anderson in series about infamous sex tape.
Both Anderson and Lee eventually came to an agreement with distributor Internet EntertainmentGroup (IEG) about their honeymoon sex tape.
Lee approved the distribution for profit, while Anderson sued the company.
This journey will be shown in the show Pam & Tommy, which has Tom Gillespie, the director of I, Tonya (2017), working on it.
The director has proven himself in biopic features, but some are unconvinced by the casting of Lily James and Sebastian Stan as Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee.
There were people who took to Twitter to express their opinions regarding the fact that Lily James will play Pamela Anderson in series about infamous sex tape.
For Elizabeth Di Filippo, a senior editor at Yahoo Canada Style, her pick would be Florence Pugh and Machine Gun Kelly.
Her tweeton December 16, 2020:
I’m not saying someone made a mistake with the Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson casting but I’m just offering an alternative that seems far superior.- Elizabeth Di Filippo (@mselizabethr)
To portray Tommy Lee, writer Amelia Wedemeyer, who works for the pop culture and sports site The Ringer, had the same recommendation as Di Filippo.
On December 17, 2020, she tweeted:
Megan Fox for Pamela Anderson. Have Machine Gun Kelly reprise his role from The Dirt.- Amelia Wedemeyer (@ameliadeew)
Los Angeles-based stand-up comedian Matt Rife disagreed with the casting.
He tweeted his view on December 17, 2020 and shared a link about an article from Canadian entertainment show Etalk.
I can’t picture 2 people who look LESS like Tommy Lee and Pam Anderson. <insert Face with Tears of Joy emoji>- Matt Rife (@mattrife)
Evidently, some believe that the casting choices could have been different, but overall, there seems to be excitement around the series created by Tom Gillespie.
On December 16, 2020, a certain Pamela from the U.S. tweeted:
I have seen I, Tonyaand what Craig Gillespie did with that bonkers story, and I know what Sebastian Stan [is] capable of as an actor. I am looking forward to Pam and Tommy. It’s going to be insane and good. Seb [Sebastian] specialize[s] on this [sic] kinda characters. Don’t forget Jeff.- Pamela (@Oppenheimerera)
Jeff Gillooly is the name of the character Stan portrayed in I, Tonya (2017).
It will be interesting to see if the actors can change themselves for the roles, given the divided reception.
However, with a talented team throughout and eight episodes, it will surely deliver some drama for viewers to enjoy.
The series is currently in pre-production!
So, the decision that Lily James will play Pamela Anderson in series about infamous sex tape is final.
