Mötley Crüe’s Tommy Lee Speaks Out About to ‘Pam & Tommy’ TV Miniseries

In December, it was revealed that Sebastian Stan, the actor best known as the Winter Soldier in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, would portray Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee in a TV mini-series about the release of the sex tape with his then-wife Pam Anderson. And while many celebrities might refuse to get involved with such a public depiction of their lives, Tommy Lee does not understand the meaning of ‘not get involved,’ often with explosive results. That said, Lee has now spoken about the story being set to the screen — and surprisingly, he’s pretty cool with it!

“I know Sebastian, he’s playing me,” the drummer told ET Online. “From what he’s told me, it’s a really beautiful story. 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….The story is actually cool, but what actually happened wasn’t. But he tells me it’s pretty wild.

Asked if he was surprised the story was being made into a movie now, so many years after the events around which the series will take place, Lee said, “Yeah, I feel like that was forever ago. It’s a cool story and people need to know. It’s cool. I’m stoked, it’s cool.”

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.
