Hulu on Friday released photos of Sebastian Stan as Tommy Lee and Lily James as Pamela Anderson for the upcoming show, "Pam & Tommy."

The limited series will reveal the true story behind the first-ever viral video in history - Lee and Anderson's leaked sex tape. In addition to Stan and James, the series features Nick Offerman, Taylor Schilling, and Seth Rogen.

Stan, 38, and James, 32, are nearly unrecognizable in the first-look photos as the former Hollywood couple.

In the first photo, James donned bleach-blond hair, dark eye makeup, and a tight leather ensemble that embodied Anderson's iconic look.

James quoted Anderson in an Instagram post caption, writing, "It's great to be blonde. With low expectations it's very easy to surprise people."

A second photo featured Stan shirtless with a sleeve tattoo while James cheekily bit on one of his nipple piercings. Stan shared the photo to his Instagram account with the phrase, "love bites."

Stan shared another behind-the-scenes photo of him and quoted Lee in the caption: "We don't stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing."

Seth Rogen also shared a photo of him in costume for the series, on which he served as an executive producer. He will play Rand, the man who stole and sold the sex tape.

"Pam & Tommy" is an eight-episode limited series directed by Craig Gillepsie, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Neither Lee nor Anderson are involved with the series, which does not have an official release date yet.

The "Baywatch" actress and Mötley Crüe drummer had a whirlwind marriage in 1995. The former couple tied the knot after only knowing each other for 96 hours.

After the VHS tape was leaked to the public, Anderson sued video distribution company Internet Entertainment Group. Anderson and Lee later reached a confidential settlement.
