In casting news we truly never saw coming, Lily James has reportedly signed on to play Pamela Anderson in a Hulu series focused on the Baywatch star and her then-husband Tommy Lee’s infamous sex tape scandal.

Sebastian Stan, another unexpected choice, will reportedly play the Mötley Crüe musician. Seth Rogen is expected to star as a vital cog in Anderson and Lee’s story: the man who stole the sex tape from the couple’s home. 

The show, currently titled Pam & Tommy, will be produced by Rogen and his Point Grey partner Evan Goldberg as well, with I, Tonya director Craig Gillespie poised to show-run. Production is set to start this spring.

On paper, James and Stan aren’t who we’d ever imagined casting for this particular story, but the power of hair and makeup cannot be overstated. It goes without saying: WE. WILL. BE. WATCHING.
