Tommy Lee says he’s “cool” with ‘Pam and Tommy’

Tommy Lee has given his seal of approval for upcoming miniseries Pam and Tommy, saying he’s “stoked”.

The Mötley Crüe drummer will be the main focus of a new Hulu miniseries, following the events surrounding his infamous sex tape with Pamela Anderson.

Sebastian Stan is playing Lee while Lily James has been cast as Pamela Anderson. Pam & Tommy will reveal what happened when the pair’s sex tape was stolen.

“I know Sebastian, he’s playing me. From what he’s told me, really beautiful story,” Lee said when asked for his thoughts on the show by Entertainment Tonight.

“I think a lot of people would think it’s one thing, but it’s really about privacy and how things got crazy then. There’s different laws now.”

Discussing his thoughts on the adaptation of this period of his life, Tommy Lee went on: “The story’s actually cool. What actually happened wasn’t, but [Stan] tells me it’s pretty wild. I feel like it was forever ago. But it’s a cool story and people need to know. It’s cool. I’m stoked.”

Earlier this summer, the show’s hair stylist Barry Lee Moe revealed that Lily James’ transformation into Pamela Anderson took three hours every day to complete.

Of James’ elaborate transformation into Pamela Anderson, Moe said her hair and makeup took “anywhere from three to five hours every morning before we even started filming.”

Pam and Tommy began filming earlier this year – a release date is yet to be confirmed, stay tuned for updates as they come in.

Hulu Is Making a TV Show About Pam & Tommy

Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson had one of the most iconic celebrity relationships of the ’90s, in part due to the infamous leaking of their sex tape, a scandal that changed the world of celebrity privacy forever. So perhaps it should come as no surprise, then, that Hulu is working on a new original limited series about the gossip-laden life of the Mötley Crüe drummer and the former Playboy star.

The show, which is currently going by the working title of Pam & Tommy, will follow the couple’s relationship from their 1995 marriage (just four days after meeting one another!) on through to the birth of their two sons, the filming of their honeymoon sex tape, and the legal battles that ensued when it was uploaded on theIinternet as viral pornography. According to Deadline, the limited series will consist of eight episodes and shooting will begin in the spring.

Hulu has already cast Sebastian Stan as Lee, Lily James as Anderson, and Seth Rogen as the man who stole the tape. I, Tonya director Craig Gillespie is helming the series and Rob Siegel is penning the script. The producers who’ve signed on include Rogen and his Point Grey partner Evan Goldberg, Limelight’s Dylan Sellers, and Annapurna’s Sue Naegle and Megan Ellison.

Anderson and Lee are not involved in Pam & Tommy at this time. However, the two have been aware of the project for several months and know that it’s underway, reports Deadline.

Needless to say, Lee and Anderson’s relationship dominated the tabloids in real time when it was happening. It’s likely that Hulu’s new series will make headlines of its own when it’s released, too, especially if Gillespie can work his dark comedy magic the same way he did with his Oscar-nominated spin on Tonya Harding’s life story.

Pamela’s 12-day marriage to Jon Peters was supposed be lunch

The two most consistent things in Pamela Anderson’s life, outside of environmental and animal activism, are marriage (she’s had five) and the ability to surprise.

In 1995, the actress married Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee 96 hours after she met him. After a notorious sex tape and two kids, they were divorced three years later. That freed her up to wed Kid Rock (2006-2007), followed up by two broken unions to the same man, party-boy poker player Rick Salomon (2007-2008; 2014-2015).

And on Jan. 20, the 52-year-old stunned the world when, out of the blue, she married film producer Jon Peters, 74.

Even more shocking: the announcement 12 days later that the “marriage” — which took place at a secret ceremony in Malibu, California, that included her sons, Dylan Lee, 22, and Brandon Thomas Lee, 23 — was over.

“Pamela had just spent a month in India on an Ayurvedic cleanse, to start the new decade off fresh. She was doing constant meditation and yoga. She came back very open,” said a source close to the couple. “Jon has pursued her for 30 years. They were texting while she was in India and agreed they’d have lunch.”

But Anderson doesn’t operate at the speed of most people.

“The day she returned, Jon invited family and friends [over for lunch] and proposed to her. He had a friend ‘officiate.’ Essentially, it was a sweet ceremony, but ultimately, [no license] was filed,” the close source said.

Almost immediately after joining Peters in Malibu, Anderson had regrets.

“She was homesick for her ranch in Canada. It’s a sprawling waterfront compound in Ladysmith, British Columbia,” said the close source.

And then there was the matter of being her own woman.

“It was important to Pamela she stay independent, financially speaking. But Jon’s as controlling as he’s creative, and he did not respond well to her autonomy,” said the close source.

“Pamela respected him,” the close source added. “He treated her like a princess. She felt she was ready to be married. It all felt right. Maybe even a sign, a gift from God after her monthlong cleanse. She was vulnerable, and she accepted his proposal. It was only supposed to be lunch.”

Anderson, who grew up in British Columbia, shot to fame as a Playboy Playmate in 1990, followed by a recurring role on the sitcom “Home Improvement” that often found her dressed in Daisy Duke cut-offs. Her next character’s costume was even skimpier — and more iconic: that red tank-style swimsuit she wore on “Baywatch” from 1992 to 1997.

But she quickly became as famous for her relationships as her career, linked to a litany of Hollywood men: actor Scott Baio, “Real World” cast member Eric Nies, “Baywatch” co-star David Charvet, “Lois & Clark” star Dean Cain, Poison rocker Bret Michaels, model Marcus Schenkenberg and surfer Kelly Slater, to name a few of the guys she didn’t actually marry.

She also reportedly dated Peters — who has producer credits on such blockbusters as “Rain Man,” “Flashdance” and “Caddyshack” — in the ’80s, although an insider says that relationship was not as it’s been portrayed. In January, Peters had told The Hollywood Reporter that he and Pam lived together 30 years ago.

“Some of these stories are not wholly accurate,” said the insider. “Jon has a penchant for hyperbole. For a few months, she lived in a spare house he had in LA Eventually, things got uncomfortable and she left. They stayed friends.”

So much so, Peters came to Anderson’s rescue when she and Tommy Lee split following a brawl in which, Lee wrote in the 2001 biography “The Dirt,” he kicked her in the rear and called her a “f–king bitch.” (Lee pleaded no contest to felony spousal battery and was sentenced to six months in prison. The couple reportedly, reunited and split two more times.)

“When Pamela and Tommy broke up [the first time], Jon had offered help,” said the insider. “He hid Pamela — along with her sons and both her parents — on his ranch in Aspen.”

And Peters allegedly never lost his longing for Anderson.

“He never ever gave up on Pam and I’m not sure he has now. He will try to woo her back,” said a friend of the producer. “It won’t work. But he won’t stop trying. Every woman he’s ever been with looks a lot like her.”

The close source agrees that a reconciliation is out of the question: “Pamela dodged a bullet. She was very uncomfortable after finding out certain things. I can tell you she didn’t like learning of his sexual harassment allegations and subsequent payouts.”
