The new Hulu show, title Pam and Tommy, is set to tell the story of Anderson’s marriage to musician Tommy Lee when their sex tape was stolen and publicly disclosed.
Lee is played by Avengers star Sebastian Stan, who shared an equally unrecognizable photo of himself as a character on Instagram.
Many have been unable to tell the difference between the actors and the characters they play.
Twitter user Jarrett Wieselman wrote: “Lily James as Pam Anderson is more perfect than I could have imagined.”
Another person added: “It’s NOT Lily James * going and the Google photos of Lily just to check out come back and crinkle a lot the brain explodes trying to fix this * – Stan looks awesome but I don’t. still can’t figure out it’s Lily. “
See the photo of James as Anderson below.
Anderson and Lee, drummer for heavy metal band Mötley Crüe, were married from 1995 to 1998.
Nick Offerman and Seth Rogen will also appear in the project, according to Deadline.
British star James can be seen in BBC adaptation of Nancy Mitford’s novel The pursuit of love.
The first episode will air on BBC One this Sunday May 9 at 9 p.m. ET.
