Guess it really does pay to Mrs. Tom Cruise. Katie Holmes recently landed the coveted role of Jackie Kennedy in the History Channel’s upcoming eight-hour mini-series, The Kennedy’s.
Greg Kinnear will star as President John F. Kennedy, with Barry Pepper and Tom Wilkinson attached to play Robert F. Kennedy and family patriarch Joe Kennedy Sr., respectively.
The miniseries is the History Channel’s first foray into scripted drama. It will explore the family’s rise to prominence and JFK’s early years in office before his 1963 assassination.
