Sebastian Stan reveals his approach to the bizarre 'talking penis' scene in Pam & Tommy


Turning Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s scandal-laden and x-rated romance into a Hulu miniseries presented certain unexpected challenges for producers.

In a long ranging interview, Sebastian Stan, 39, who portrays Lee, reveals how he approached a particularly bizarre scene adapted from the Motley Crue rocker’s 2005 memoir where chats with his penis.

Several puppeteers were hired for the racy scene in Pam & Tommy with actor Jason Mantzoukas voicing Lee’s animatronic genitals, Variety reported.

‘By the end of it, I treated it like it was an intimate buddy conversation that one might have when they’re falling in love,’ Stand told the outlet about how he approached the scene.

In Tommyland, Tommy Lee’s memoir, he describes having a full conversation with his private parts about falling for Baywatch bombshell Pamela Anderson.  

‘I think it might be a first [for television]. There was gentle pushback, because you’ve got to push back a little when a talking penis is presented to you,’ said show creator Robert Siegel. ‘But Hulu was extremely supportive.’

The director, Craig Gillespie, added that it was not an easy scene to film, calling the whole ordeal ‘just awkward.’

‘You’ve got four puppeteers working with an animatronic penis,’ he said. ‘And then, how much is too much, and do you start to lose his emotional torment of what’s going on? Hopefully it works.’

Starring Lily James and Sebastian Stan as the titular characters in Pam & Tommy, the show follows the story of the leak of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s sex tape in 1997.  

Several other Hollywood heavy hitters co-star in the eight-episode series like Seth Rogen, who plays Rand Gauthier, the porn actor-turned-electrician who stole Pamela and Tommy’s sex tape, Nick Offerman, who plays Rand’s associate, Uncle Miltie, and Taylor Schilling, who plays Rand’s porn star wife Erica.

'You've got four puppeteers working with an animatronic penis,' reflected the director. 'And then, how much is too much, and do you start to lose his emotional torment of what's going on? Hopefully it works.'

The sex tape was stolen by Rand after Tommy refused to pay for work that he had performed on their house.

When Gauthier confronted the musician about not being paid the $20,000 he was owed, Tommy pulled out a gun to scare him away. 

Gauthier took his revenge by stealing the giant safe that had been kept in the couple’s garage, which mainly housed the drummer’s guns and Pamela’s jewelry, in addition to the sex tape.

Pamela, 54, and Tommy, 59, tied the knot on a beach in Mexico in 1995 after dating for just four days. At the time, her mother hadn’t met Tommy. They went on to have sons Brandon, 24, and Dylan, 22, and divorced in 1998. 

The first three episodes of Pam & Tommy stream February 2nd on Hulu.
