Katie Holmes and Rachel Weisz to Play Jackie Kennedy

Rachel or Katie — Who Will Make a Better Jackie O.?

Mad Men may say that women are either a Marilyn or a Jackie, but not this year. There are two Jackie O. roles, and two leading ladies to play them.

Katie Holmes will play her in The Kennedys, an eight-hour miniseries to air on the History Channel next year. While Rachel Weisz will take on the icon in a feature film that chronicles the days following President Kennedy's assassination. Either way we're in for some vintage fashion and period drah-mah.

Yesterday Rachel told People there'd be no real-life drama, though, because there's no competition between her and Katie. But that doesn't mean we can't make it one! So big screen or small, who do you think will make the better Jackie?

I have a hard time taking Katie Holmes seriously in anything. Team Rachel!

I think Katie absolutely looks the part but Rachel will probably bring more to the role.

Rachel carries herself so well. Not to mention her superior acting chops. Katie has potential, but she's not quite at the acting caliber as Rachel.

Rachel... no question. She can act and resembles Jackie.

I can't see Katie as anything other than Tom's beard.

agreed skg, although her marriage to tom has made her a household name, for some reason it's hard to separate her as an actress from her as the woman who is married to that crazy guy.

no offense to katie, but rachel is a more legit actress, and plus look at those pictures...rachel looks just like her, and is a little more elegant but i'm sure katie will do well, as well
