“The Kennedys” is going to be the History Channel’s first scripted miniseries and they recently announced that Katie Holmes will portray Jacqueline Kennedy while Greg Kinnear is taking on the role of President John F. Kennedy. (What, was Tom Cruise busy?) Barry Pepper has been cast to play Robert Kennedy, who served as U.S. attorney general in his brother’s administration while Tom Wilkinson is taking on the role of the patriarch, Joseph Kennedy.
According to the channel, the eight-hour miniseries, which will air on the History Channel in 2011, will include the family’s personal drama along with major events of their time. Katie’s going to have to bring back the bob – and also her acting skills. Do you think she has what it takes to play the most famous First Lady ever?
