Katie as Jackie??





When it was announced that Katie Holmes was going to play Jackie Kennedy in a History Channel movie a few months ago, my curiosity was peaked. I have seen so many actresses play her and unfortunately, because she is such an iconic character, it is virtually impossible to capture her true likeness onscreen. The one actress that I thought did an amazing job was Jill Hennessey, in The Kennedy Women. For me, she has come the closest to the real thing.



People have been up in arms over Katie Holmes getting this role. Who else did they want to play her?? I think Katie could be a great Jackie, but we will have to see. They do have a likeness...










Greg Kinnear is playing JFK..hope he has his Boston accent perfected...


The History Channel has this 8-hour mini series lined up for 2011. Stay tuned..
