Sebastian Stan Details the 'Really Wild' Process of Becoming Tommy Lee for 'Pam & Tommy'

“We had the very best hair and makeup team we could’ve asked for and they just killed it,” he shared. “They deserve whatever awards that are given. We couldn’t have done it without them.”

Sebastian stars in the show alongside Lily James, who plays Pamela Anderson. The series centers on the real-life couple’s sex tape, which was stolen and shared to the internet by a disgruntled contractor (Seth Rogen) in 1997.

He went on to describe the “crazy process” of becoming the Motley Crue rocker.

“I think it took two hours for myself and then three hours for Lily almost every morning,” he recalled. “Then you pile that on to a 12-hour day and it just definitely gets interesting by the end.”

The two actors made headlines back in May after Hulu released a first look at the pair in the series, where they recreated a photo Pam and Tommy took back in the day.

“It’s really wild, with Lily, because the first time I saw her as herself was actually at the end of the shoot five months later,” Sebastian said, “and I was like, ‘Who are you?’ That’s when we actually formally met.”

Pam & Tommy is set to premiere with the first three episodes on Wednesday, Feb. 2, with new episodes streaming weekly on Hulu. Check out the first trailer here!
