Rachel Weisz to Play Jackie Kennedy in Movie 2010-04-14 10:30:00

Rachel Weisz to Channel Jackie Kennedy

Rachel Weisz might want to clear off a space on her mantel for another future Oscar: the actress is attached to star in Jackie, as the former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. The movie, which her fiance, Darren Aronofsky, will direct and produce, follows the days after husband John F. Kennedy's assassination in the '60s.

All I have to say is bravo — there are few actresses who could pull off the je ne sais quois of the regal Jackie O, but Weisz is one of them. There's no question of acting chops, and I think her look will suit the sublimely elegant political icon just fine. Am I gushing too much, or can you see Weisz as Jackie too?

I wonder what she's going to do about the voice. RW has a deep, rich voice, and Jackie had that breathy voice.Otherwise I think she's a great choice.
