Enlarge Lee says the series is a "beautiful story... about privacy and how things got crazy then."

Mötley Crüe’s Tommy Lee “Stoked” That They’re Making a Series About His Sex Tape with Pamela Anderson

  • Axl Rosenberg

One might naturally assume that Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee was unhappy about Pam & Tommy, Hulu’s upcoming  upcoming eight-episode limited series about Lee’s infamous leaked sex tape with his then-wife, Baywatch star Pamela Anderson. If for no other reason than because he doesn’t get top billing in the title.

But no! In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Lee reveals that he’s friends with the actor playing him in the series, Sebastian Stan (The Falcon and the Winter SoldierThe Devil All the Time), and that he’s “stoked” the story is being told:

“I know Sebastian, he’s playing me. From what he’s told me, 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.” 

Lee went on to say that “The story’s actually cool, what actually happened wasn’t,” and that that “people need to know” what transpired. Which seems like a bit of an overstatement, but I understand what he’s getting at.

Watch the interview here.

Pam & Tommy will reunite Stan with Craig Gillespie, director of 2017’s I, Tonya. It’s being written and executive produced by Robert Siegel (The WrestlerBig Fan) and DV DeVincentis (High FidelityAmerican Crime Story). In addition to Stan, it stars Lily James (Baby DriverRebecca) as Anderson, Seth Rogen (Knocked Up) as the dude who stole the couple’s sex tape, Taylor Schilling (Orange is the New Black), comedian Andrew Dice Clay, Pepi Sonuga (Leprechaun Returns), Spencer Granese (Better Call Saul), and Mozhan Marnò (The Blacklist). No premiere date has been announced as of yet.
