Well, our Christmas wish came early this year. Pamela Anderson went through with her plans to play the Virgin Mary during a Canadian TV special.

The former “Baywatch” babe, dressed modestly, cuddled the Baby Jesus as part of a comedy sketch during the CTV Christmas special. She was joined by comics including “SNL” alum Jon Lovitz and Russell Peters.

The former Playboy playmate tells FOX of her chaste character, “I’ve been typecast – again.”

Not everyone was happy that someone like Anderson, who could be considered a pioneer in celebrity sex tapes, played the biblical character.

The National Catholic Register expressed disappointment in the casting move. They wrote that if CTV “want(s) to shock us, show a little reverence.”
