Anthony Mackie Is Horrified Seeing Sebastian Stan’s Transformation Into Tommy Lee
Pam and Tommy is one of the most controversial yet anticipated projects currently. Based on Pamela Anderson and her ex-husband, Tommy Lee’s leaked sex tape, the series will star Lily James and Sebastian Stan as Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee in the upcoming series. Anthony Mackie, Stan’s Falcon and the Winter Soldier co-star, has now opened up about his role in the show.
Answering the media at the 2021 MTV Movie and TV Awards, Mackie quipped that he was “horrified” when he saw Stan’s transformation pic. “He sent me a video on set and a few photos and I was blown away. I was really surprised and impressed that he was able to do it. I was horrified. I was like, ‘What are you doing?! You’re playing Tommy Lee?’…It’s just humbling when you see your friend and he succeeds. And he crushed it,” said the Falcon and the Winter Soldier actor.
Appreciating Sebastian Stan’s work, Anthony Mackie further added, “Sebastian is a great actor…people being able to see him for the chameleon that he is, not just the beautifully amazing, blue-eyed god that he is — it’s very refreshing to see your friend win.”
The limited series, Pam and Tommy, will focus on the relationship between Pamela Anderson and her ex-husband Tommy Lee, and their infamous sex tape. According to Variety, the comedic series focuses on the true story behind the release of the first-ever viral video in history: Pamela and Tommy Lee’s sex tape.
Considered one of the most famous relationships in Hollywood, the Baywatch star and Mötley Crüe drummer decided to marry less than a week after meeting each other in 1995. The series will also star Seth Rogen, Nick Offerman, Taylor Schilling, Andrew Dice Clay, Pepi Sonuga, Spencer Granese, and Mozhan Marnò. Seth plays Rand Gauthier, the guy who stole and sold the tape.
