Back in December, we learned that Sebastian Stan, the actor most moviegoing audiences know as the Winter Soldier from Marvel’s Captain America films, would be portraying Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee in a TV series about the infamous sex tape made by Lee and his then-wife Pamela Anderson. Now, Stan has revealed a photo of him in character, and…wow, he looks a lot like Tommy Lee!
As you’ll see in the photo below, Stan’s got a lot going on that resembles Lee — the hair, the tattoos, even the apron. More than anything, though, it’s the posture that’s really nailing the drummer’s innate chaotic vibe. Stan looks like he’s rallying at a barbecue after a multi-day bender, which is pretty much how we imagine Lee living his life at all times.

Stan will portray Mötley Crüe’s infamous hard-partying drummer in a new series by Hulu, which will examine how Lee’s sex tape with Anderson became a cultural phenomenon that dominated the headlines. Joining Stan will be actress Lily James (Baby Driver, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) as Anderson, while comedian Seth Rogen will not only produce the series, but will also play the guy who got his hands on the tape (poor Seth Rogen, so talented and yet such a shoo-in for a sweaty dude lit by a screen). Directing the series will be Craig Gillespie, famous for his Tonya Harding movie I, Tonya. The working title of the show is currently Pam & Tommy.
Meanwhile, Mötley Crüe fans should keep their eyes peeled, as the band has had to reschedule their stadium tour with Def Leppard. New dates for that trek, which will also feature Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, will hopefully be announced in the near future.
