Pamela Anderson to play Virgin Mary

2011-11-15 22:34
Los Angeles - Pamela Anderson will portray the Virgin Mary in a TV special.

The former Baywatch actress - who has posed for adult publication Playboy several times and famously starred in a sex tape with then-husband Tommy Lee - will star in a re-imagining of the Nativity story on Canadian network CTV and The Comedy Network's A Russell Peters Christmas Special.

In the festive sketch, Australian funnyman Russell will portray Joseph.

A statement from CTV said: "Peters puts his own irreverent twist on the Christmas special."

The show, which will broadcast at the beginning of December, will feature a mix of animation, stand up and sketch comedy and musical performances.

Other guests who will appear in the 60-minute transmission include crooner Michael Bublé, The Love Boat star Ted Lange and comedian Job Lovitz.

Pantomime

Over the last two years Pamela has spent the festive season taking a starring role in British pantomimes - a type of comedy musical theatre show traditionally shown around Christmas time - and has admitted she loves appearing in the festive productions. 

She has said: "My agent came to me and just said, 'This is something you probably don't want to do but how about pantomime?'

"He explained it was a kind of theatre and I thought it would be fun. He told me that it was funny and light-hearted and I thought it would be perfect because it's funny that I'm on stage at all!

"I have two homes in Malibu and I just love pouring my heart out in pantomime. I feel that this is where I should be headed, more so than wearing bikinis."

    Russel Peters is Canadian not Australian

    Well her casting makes sense. There certainly weren't no virgin birth or virgin Mary and everything about Pamela is false and she sure ain't no virgin. There is also a good chance that Joseph gets to see her naked.

    I wonder who they're pitching this at- sounds like a bunch of idiots...

    Isn't her hair the wrong colour for this role?

    Virginity is not an act of dignity it is a lack of opportunity

      you are an attention seeking loser, who hides behind your fake facebook profile, seeking validation through your unintelligent, uneducated, thoughtless comments. obviously has no life. And clearly you feel that all your comments and your profile makes you some sort of a celebrity, when all it really does is show ppl that you are an unemployed, lonely loser, who has nothing better to do all day than to share the irrelevant garbage that overflows out of your mouth. Obviously, this makes up for what you are lacking in reality, because in reality, no wife or girlfriend, or possibly even in your case, a blow up doll, would allow their husband or boyfriend to be the kind of person you portray to the world. That probably isnt even your real name. you were probably bullied at school and now seek acceptance through a fake name and fake profile of someone you wish you really were. you think because you get a thumbs up or a thumbs down that it makes you some sort of a hero? do you not think that if the absolute hogwash you leave in these comments were accpetable in society, or even close to the truth, that other people would be commenting in the same unintelligent, lower than low manner that you do? But hey, you probably will read this and go, YAY SOMEONE PAYED ME SOME ATTENTION, LETS REPLY WITH SOMETHING FUNNY SO IT SEEMS I DONT CARE, so you do that Preshen Govender, you make the world believe that you are this person who, in reality, couldnt be more further than who you really are.

    Where they not able to find anyone better to play the role of Mary?

    What Bette Midler said about Madonna can also apply to Pamela Anderson. " The only thing she can do like a Virgin is give birth in a stable."

    Pamela is the most inappropriate choice for this role. We wil most certainly not view it.
