Never heard of Lily James (Baby Driver, Yesterday) before? Well, get familiar, because I have a feeling her turn as Pamela Anderson in Hulu’s miniseries Pam & Tommy is going to be her big-breakout role. Why do I think that? Well… just look at her!
On Friday afternoon, Hulu released the first-look images at James and her co-star Sebastian Stan as Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, and the pair look INCREDIBLE as the iconic 90s couple. In fact, the first time I came across that black-and-white photo, I legitimately scrolled right past it thinking it was merely a throwback picture of the pair. Nope — that’s Sebastian Stan and Lily James.

Seth Rogen and Nick Offerman will also star in the miniseries.

In addition to James, Pam & Tommy could also prove to be another springboard for Stan’s career as the 38-year-old approaches A-list status following his star turn in the Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
Pam & Tommy — which “depicts the marriage between Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee following the release of their infamous sex tape — will also feature Seth Rogen as Rand Gauthier, the man who infamously stole Tommy and Pam’s sex tape:

In addition to Stan, James, and Rogen, Pam & Tommy also stars Nick Offerman as Uncle Miltie and Taylor Schilling as Erica Gauthier, with Pepi Sonuga, Andrew Dice Clay, Spenser Granese, and Mozhan Marno in recurring roles.
At this time, the Hulu miniseries (which began production in April), does not have an official release date. Given that filming is underway, though, a late 2021/early 2022 release seems most likely.
