Back of Katie Holmes Makes Her Debut as Pregnant Jackie Kennedy! Katie Holmes was in a faux baby bump and a bobbed hairdo yesterday to film The Kennedys in Coburg, Ontario. She signed on to play the role of Jackie Kennedy in the upcoming History Channel miniseries, which is the brainchild of 24 cocreator Joel Surnow. Katie headed north with Suri after a stay in NYC, where she joined Tom Cruise for a date night and met up with her costars from The Romantics. Over the weekend, Katie and Suri were able to get acquainted with their temporary hometown and even ventured out to do some strawberry picking.

I'm skeptical about whether she'll be able to pull this role off, but since it is made-for-tvand not a film I think that should take the preasure off a bit. noonehere 7 years wow.. She's just it!! juicebox07 7 years I don't think Katie fits the role. bryseana 7 years I think the actress who played the mom in The Lovely Bones would have been a good choice for this role. But I'm sure Katie will to great. sparkliegirl 7 years Shes so wrong for this role. She has a "cute" face like a little girl. Jackie O was chisled beauty and looked like a woman not a girl. I agree, no grace. Studio16 7 years ... I was hoping this was just a rumor. I think Jennifer Connelly would have been absolutely to die for in this role. I really do. Katie doesn't look like Jackie and doesn't have the same air of confidence and class that Jackie had. That said, the guy playing JFK is hotttt. Bobby, notsomuch. cdelaney 7 years I don't think she is the right fit for the role. She doesn't seem like a "serious" enough actress for the part, and doesn't have the right look. anya82 7 years Katie looks adorable! I think she could pull this role off. Spartygirl03 7 years I think she'll be great in this role! Can't wait to see it. Miss-Infamous 7 years who the hell was in charge of hair/makeup/wardrobe?! FAIL! BorgesMarquez 7 years I just don't see her as Jakie O. Portman and even Jennifer Goodwyn, but Holmes is not a very good actress and she does not project style, grace, or even poise.
