Katie Holmes Sexes Up The History Channel


Ladies and gentlemen, we are pleased to present Jackie O-my-god-that’s-Katie-Holmes. Alright, we’ll be the first to say we were skeptical when we heard that the former Dawson’s Creek dweller would portray iconic first lady Jackie Kennedy in the upcoming miniseries, The Kennedys. The eight hour epic TV movie will be the History Channel’s first attempt at a scripted drama, documenting the scandalous, private lives of the famous family. While we haven’t seen her act the part, we’ve got to admit that she looked amazing while shooting in Toronto. Nice doppelganger work, girlfriend.

‘”We have these wonderful seamstresses who are creating beautiful dresses that are obviously replicas of real things she wore,” Katie told UsMagazine.com. Two of the dresses she wears were stitched by her friend Georgio Armani. Legendary designers tackling classic style?  Screw Glee, Katie should try for a guest spot on Mad Men!

Does Katie Holmes Have What it Takes To Play Jackie Kennedy?


“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?
