EXCLUSIVE: Orange is the new black Former Taylor Schilling was selected for a regular role in the series opposite Lily James, Sebastian Stan and Seth Rogen in Pam and Tommy, Hulu’s limited series based on the true story behind the release of the very first viral video – Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s sex tape. Nick Offerman also plays the lead role. Spenser Granese and Mozhan Marnò are set to repeat in the series, written by Robert Siegel and DV DeVincentis and produced by Annapurna, which stars James and Stan as the famous celebrity couple.
Rogan plays Rand, the man who stole the tape; Nick Offerman also stars as the porn impresario Uncle Miltie who helped him distribute it.
Schilling, a regular on the split series, will play Erica, Rand’s (Rogen) wife… at least on paper. Erica is a pornstar on her own terms, with an emotional and intellectual intelligence that Rand can’t quite relate to. Although she moved a long time ago, she still holds a place in her life for Rand… as long as he behaves.
Granese will play Steve Fasanella, a low IQ individual who works for Uncle Miltie (Offerman) at Ingley Studios. In his loose morals and shortcomings, he is no different from Rand (Seth Rogen) himself, minus unreasonable goals.
Marnò plays Gail Chwatsky. A true advertising powerhouse, Gail knows what it will take to elevate Pamela Anderson’s career. Although she is strictly professional, there is a side to Gail that really cares about Pamela’s well-being …
The recurring cast for the series also includes Andrew Dice Clay and Pepi Sonuga.
