'Pam & Tommy' Star Seth Rogen on Whether He'll Watch Pamela Anderson's Documentary (Exclusive)

ET spoke with Rogen at the show's finale screening Tuesday, where he shared his thoughts on Anderson's upcoming Netflix doc.

Seth Rogen is talking all things Pam & Tommy.

ET's Lauren Zima spoke with Rogen at the show's finale screening Tuesday, where he talked about his role in the buzzed-about series and how he feels about Pamela Anderson telling her side of the story in her own Netflix documentary.

"I'm excited to watch it. Yeah, I can't wait," Rogen, who plays Rand Gauthier, a disgruntled former employee of the star couple, said of Anderson's upcoming doc.

"The film, which has been in the making for several years, will feature the pop culture icon setting the record straight as she looks back on her professional path and her personal journey," reads the statement from the streaming service. The doc is directed by Ryan White (Ask Dr. Ruth, The Keepers), and promises to be "an intimate portrait" of Anderson's life.

News of the documentary comes weeks after the release of Hulu's scripted series, which sees Lily James and Sebastian Stan undergo major transformations for their roles as Anderson and Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee. Rogen did some transforming of his own, though, to play the man who stole and leaked the sex tape Anderson and Lee made on their honeymoon in 1995. 

While he was fascinated by the '90s fits he wore for the series, Rogen told ET that he can't exactly say he misses his mullet or the baggy jeans he wore on the show.

"It seems like it had some sort of mystique that people took to, I will say," he said of his throwback hairdo. "So, I do a little bit. People took me a little more seriously with that hair, which is weird."

While Rogen wasn't a huge fan of the fashion, the funnyman, who also serves as an executive producer on the series, told ET the production assistants on set loved his looks.

"I was amazed at how fashionable they currently are," Rogen shared. "A lot of the PAs on set were, like, 20, like, people in their early 20s, and I'd always come out of the trailer dressed in a way that I thought was ridiculous, and then they'd be like, 'Thats a cool outfit,' and I was like, 'Oh no." 

"All this stuff, the big baggy jeans, those shirts with, like, the tire and the tread marks," he continued.

Transformations aside, Rogen said he was most impressed by James and Stan's performances, calling it "thrilling" to see.

"I was really relived, as a producer of the show, I was very relieved," the Superbad star admitted. "We don't audition these people, so you're kind of just hoping they can do it. You don't really know necessarily, so it was thrilling to see that we did it."

As far as the show receiving awards season love, Rogen, who often stars in more comedic roles, said it would be nice to get that kind of recognition.

"That'd be great. It would totally be nice to be a part of that conversation," Rogen said. That's not something that happens a lot throughout my long career. I'll take it whenever we can get it." 

The series finale of Pam & Tommy airs March 9 on Hulu.
