Producer Barry Weissler also shared a statement on their decision to cast Pamela. He said, “Pam is a very moral person, extremely moral. She cares about animals. She cares about the planet. She cares about people. The difference between her as Pam and Roxie is Roxie doesn’t care about anyone but herself, and she doesn’t give a damn about the outside world as long as she can be famous. So Pam comes with totally opposite attributes in life, but she fits because of her celebrity, what she’s gone through in life.”
Pamela is best known for her roles on Baywatch and Home Improvement. She has also been in the headlines for her many relationships, including her famed marriage to rocker Tommy Lee. Their relationship has been turned into a miniseries on Hulu called Pam & Tommy.
