Katie Holmes To Play Jacqueline Kennedy

With her serene presence and classic fashion sense, Katie Holmes was seemingly born to play Jacqueline Kennedy.

She'll have the opportunity to play history's most famous first lady in "The Kennedys." The eight-hour mini series will premiere in 2011 on the History Channel, according to Access Hollywood.

The "Dawson Creek" star has signed up alongside Greg Kinnear who will play John F. Kennedy and the great British actor Tom Wilkinson who will play Joe Kennedy. Barry Pepper will play brother-in-law Robert Kennedy.

Actress Jeanne Tripplehorn most recently depicted Jacqueline Kennedy on the small screen in 2009 in HBO’s “Grey Gardens.”
