FIRST LOOK: Katie Holmes Channels Jackie Kennedy in New Role

06/29/2010 at 02:00 PM ET

Todd G/Splash News Online

The baby bump Katie Holmes showed off on Monday was not in fact a sibling for Suri, but part of a costume for her role as Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy in the History Channel’s upcoming miniseries, The Kennedys. Coiffed in the famously chic first lady’s signature Camelot-era bouffant, the star was spotted on the Ontario, Canada set in a robin’s egg-blue shift, paired with pearls, a rhinestone circle pin–and a prosthetic belly–evoking Jackie’s classic polished look, even while in maternity clothes. Holmes, a trendsetter in her own right as well as a burgeoning designer, will no doubt feel right at home playing dress up as one of America’s seminal fashion plates. Tell us: Are you excited to see Katie as Jackie O? –Marissa Patlingrao Cooley

I shiver to think what her Jackie accent will sound like.

That’s a nice sneak peek of Katie Holmes as Jackie Kennedy, and I am so excited to see Katie as Jackie O!

Krystal on

She looks great! I know she will be awesome, can’t wait to see it.

S. on

Ugh! What next? Getting Justin Bieber to play Jack????

JE on

An absolute talentless hack. No interest in watching this mess of a movie.

Katie is horrible in everything, including her life. She should go away and hide in all her houses with Cruise. What a mistake to put her in this role, she looks silly – like a girl playing dress-up badly. She has no class.

CANDY on

Does anyone REALLY care ??

NO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Becky on

I just don’t see it. She is not a good actress and she didn’t get the role on her looks, how did she get it? I still think Anne Hathaway would be perfect.

Leelee on

Wow, some of you people are just outright catty you know whats! Jealous much? Im sure she really cares how you feel about her. Keep being spiteful, while she laughs all the way to the bank. Im sure she will do fine, she looks great!

STFU Karen on

Karen you’re comment was less than classy as well. Grow up kiddo. Man I hate when school lets out, all the punks get bored and get online to instigate.
