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.

@beckie. oo I agree I think ann hathaway would be better in this role. I lost respect for katie when she married that weirdo(in a cult) husband of hers.I think a better,more classy actress could have been chosen.

So much negativity here! I’m sure all those who posted these comments, could do SO much better than KH could. NOT!!!

I can’t believe some of the dumb comments I’m reading. Katie has more class and talent than all of you whiners put together. She’ll be great in the role of Jackie. I don’t normally watch the history channel but I’ll watch for this one.

I can’t say whether Katie will be good or bad at her role, until I watch it for myself. Good luck to Katie in her role as Jackie.

Katie doesn’t have enough life experience to play the sophisticated Jackie Bouvier Kennedy. And too all-american. Marion Cotillard would play her well. Jackie loved her French background.

JOKE !

I liked when Jacqueline Smith played Jackie O. It’s hard to imagine anybody topping that.

Katie is definitely a poor CHOICE for this role! Katie is too tall to play Jackie and not a great actress.

I like her as a person but never was a fan. Her personal life I could care less… but her daughter is very cute.

Katie Holmes wouldn’t make a good pimple on Jackie’s butt. How dare she even think for a second that she is in the same class as Jackie.
