You have to look twice, but it is really Renée Zellweger (52) who plays the role of convicted murderer Pam Hupp (63) in the NBC series ‘The Thing About Pam’. The actress had to spend the necessary hours in make-up for this, but the result is astonishing. Judge yourself.

“If you don’t recognize an actor or actress in a performance, that’s a big compliment”
On Friday, NBC released the first trailer for the March 8 true crime series The Thing About Pam. The show tells the true story of the murder of Betsy Faria in 2011. Renée stars in the series as Pam Hupp, a middle-aged mother who works for an insurance firm and in 2011 becomes embroiled in a brutal murder.
