FIRST LOOK: Katie Holmes Channels Jackie Kennedy in New Role

Todd G/Splash News Online

The baby bump Katie Holmes showed off on Monday was not in fact a sibling for Suri, but part of a costume for her role as Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy in the History Channel’s upcoming miniseries, The Kennedys. Coiffed in the famously chic first lady’s signature Camelot-era bouffant, the star was spotted on the Ontario, Canada set in a robin’s egg-blue shift, paired with pearls, a rhinestone circle pin–and a prosthetic belly–evoking Jackie’s classic polished look, even while in maternity clothes. Holmes, a trendsetter in her own right as well as a burgeoning designer, will no doubt feel right at home playing dress up as one of America’s seminal fashion plates. Tell us: Are you excited to see Katie as Jackie O? –Marissa Patlingrao Cooley

I’ve been a Katie fan since she was on Dawson’s Creek, and to be honest, I never would have pegged her for this role either. I’m looking forward to seeing the movie.

I think the Actress who fits the Role as Jackie O is Either Anne Hathaway or Keira Knightley.

Look at her arms..and she is too tall. Jackie lived life to the fullest, I cannot for the life of me see Katie as Jackie.

Now a days people mistake class with money…it’s culture, mannerism and an upbringing that you are born with. Along with an education,

Sorry but Katie does not have it and money cannot buy it! I am sure Katie is a good person but not for the role of the most famous first LADY!

Katie does not have the lurking power, charisma and poise that Jackie had. Nor does she have that “fey” quality JFK said she had. And if you weren’t raised high-class it’s pretty hard to fake it. Katie can’t come close. I’d say too, that Jackie looked like a grown woman but Katie looks like a teenager. Katie can “pose” all she wants because there is a slight resemblance. But they ALL should have known it would be useless, because there was and always will be only ONE Jackie.

I’m laughing.!!! some people think ANNE HATHAWAY or that vinegar-face Keira Knightly should play Jackie !!!? Oh, too funny. Anne looks like a rodent {a mouse in fact}, and Keira is a stick and neither one of them could pull of the WOMAN that Jackie was.

Really think she is not appropriate for role.

Yuck…she is not Jackie!!!!

She had her run on Dawson’s Creek and is not capable of much more.

Yes, I can’t wait! I love anything Jackie and am somewhat of a collector of her memorabilia. I’ll be interested in seeing Katie’s spin on her. A great opportunity for her. When will it be shown?
