A few minutes ago I was debating the merits of going to the IRL bar in New Girl for outdoor happy hour with my best friend (She can’t! She’s busy!). Then, I almost dropped the phone. Because, as I opened Instagram, Sebastian Stan’s shirtless, tattooed body was staring back at me. That wouldn’t usually be out of the ordinary, since Stan posted an image of his bare behind mere days ago.
“Here’s a peek at Pam & Tommy, coming to @Hulu,” the Pam & Tommy Instagram account captioned the black and white photo. “Based on the true scandal that started it all.
For Stan and James’ part, they look like they’re already having a blast bringing their characters to life. Hulu has confirmed Pam & Tommy will serve as a comedic limited series about its titular real-life stars' private sex tape, which was stolen from their home safe and leaked in 1995. At the time of the crime, Anderson was ultra famous as a Baywatch star and one of Playboy magazine’s most successful Playmates, Lee was the infamous drummer of rock band Mötley Crüe.
The Pam & Tommy team has also revealed solo images of its stars. Stan — fresh off of Disney+'s Falcon and the Winter Soldier — posted a photo of himself flashing the middle finger while perched on the hood of a sports car. The Pam & Tommy Instagram account also shared an in-colour solo shot of James, revealing the actor in bright blue contacts, a wavy blonde wig, heavy '90s makeup, and a ton of leather.
You can at least prepare for the inevitable Pam & Tommy Emmys hair and makeup awards push, since you can’t hang your (leather) hat on a premiere date right now. Hulu has yet to reveal when Pam & Tommy will debut, and there's no word yet on a UK air date either.
