History Channel is producing an 8 hour mini-series called The Kennedys. Greg Kinnear will play JFK. Barry Pepper will play RFK. And Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis will be played by...
Oh wait, sorry, it’s KatE Holmes.
So... we might be fighting but... I think it’s a good casting choice. It’s hard, yes, to remember but try, try to remember her before the GMD’s domination. She had some talent. There’s the possibility she could do a good job. If of course they allow her to. Who? Well... Xenu.
History says this will be an accurate portrayal of the family. As close to an authentic portrait as possible Re: Jackie that means depicting a complicated, often misunderstood, often under and overestimated woman who, as famous as she was, remained a mystery to many right up to the end. How deep into character will Katie go? Here’s a quick example: Jackie chainsmoked in private, and Tom Cruise made Katie quit smoking as soon as he convinced her to become his public girlfriend. Will he let her smoke for art?
Actors say some roles can be transformative. Jacqueline Kennedy holds a lot of promise for Katie Holmes. My smutty sense is tingling already.
Did she tell Armani to use Jackie’s wedding dress as inspiration for her own? Obviously Jackie’s is a classic and FAR superior. Obviously Katie’s was a mess. But still...I feel like the seeds were there long ago.
