Washington: Pamela Anderson, who has recently signed on to play the Virgin Mary in comedian Russell Peters’ comedy special said that she has been “typecast” by critics again.
Despite the outcry from groups like the National Catholic Register, who said the casting decision proved that “irreverence is so commonplace that it’s now the norm,” the former ‘Baywatch’ star claimed that the role suits her perfectly.
“I’ve been typecast – again,” Fox News quoted her as saying.
The controversy over Anderson prompted the funnyman, who will play the role of Mary’s husband in the special, to come out and defend his leading lady.
“I didn’t even think about the other side of Pam Anderson, which is so long ago. Let’s give a chick a break already,” Peters told CTV News.
“There’s nothing really unholy about it. It’s a celebration,” he added.
