Renee Zellweger Transforms For “The Thing About Pam”
Renee Zellweger is really unrecognizable in The Thing About Pam.
And now her costars are talking about her transformation into the role. Zellweger stars as Pam Hupp in NBC’s upcoming true crime series, which premieres March 8, alongside Josh Duhamel, Judy Greer, Katy Mixon and Glenn Fleshler.
The story tells the true story of Hupp, who is currently serving a life sentence for the murder of Louis Gumpenberger in 2016 and the prime suspect in the murder of Betsy Faria in 2011.
Zellweger’s transformation in the role — which included a wig, facial prosthetics and a bodysuit — was so dramatic that the cast sometimes didn’t recognize her themselves.
“Renee is a method [actor],” Duhamel told E! News’ daily pop. “So sometimes you couldn’t tell if it was really Renee or if it was Pam, until you heard her laugh or something.”
He continued: ‘Renee is one of the greatest ever and I’m not surprised she did what she did. She’s never done a show like this… and to do this for her, I think it was an event and I wanted to be a part of that.”
Greer says seeing Renee in all the prosthetics made the cast feel like they had to “stand up for the occasion.”
“She has won an Academy Award twice,” Greer told E! “There’s a reason.”
And as for the rest of the cast, Flesher told E! that he and Zellweger’s characters “had a great time hating each other” on set.
