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

Toren on

is there nobody else in this world concerned with the ACTUAL FACTS when it comes to our history? WTF!!!

I think that she looks more like Angelina Jolie than Jackie-0 I think that they should have used a no-name for the part. I’m not jealous or mean just saying.

@ Toren… get a clue sweety. The picture wasn’t taken while she was FILMING. It was taken while she was on the set. It was probably during a break and she took a phone call. Use your brain… if you have one.

Karly on

She may look the part, but I am afraid I’m nervous to see how her portrayal of Jackie comes across in her acting skills.

This girl can not act, sing, or dance. She would have been back in Toledo a long time ago if she wasn’t married to Tom Cruise!

Jenn on

I find it hard to see her playing Jackie. I have seen Katie’s movies before and she comes off a immature on screen.

Debra Evans on

Oh.. the History Channel…She can’t act and has no film presence. Spare me and save some money. Why do we care?

Tee on

She is cute and lives a nice scandal-free life, but not exactly a great actress. But it’s really not a big deal, it’s the history channel. Hopefully she has a good time with it!

C on

It’s obvious that she was cast for the part just because it would generate a lot of publicity. She’s just a very mediocre actress, but I still want to see the mini-series.

Ana on

Shocked that Katie Holmes has been cast in this role….she doesn’t look like Jackie O, she has a completely different body type, and does not carry herself as Jackie did. This would be difficult to watch.
