Katie Holmes and Rachel Weisz are both slatted to play Jackie O. in two different productionRachel on the big screen and Katie on the small screen)…there is still a question…who will play Jackie better?
Rachel Â told People,
“She’s a fantastic actress,” Weisz, referring to Holmes, told PEOPLE at Thursday’s NYDG’s Rx Haiti benefit in New York. “She will be fabulous.”
With the possibility of critics comparing and contrasting their performances, Weisz insists, “It’s not a competition. I’m surprised more people haven’t played her thus far. It seems strange there hasn’t been many versions. But it’s great she has the opportunity to play her as well.”
The 2006 Oscar winner (forÂ The Constant Gardener), 40, will star in the big-screen drama to be directed by husband Darren Aronofsky that chronicles the days immediately following President John F. Kennedy’s 1963 assassination. Meanwhile, Holmes, 31, will star in the History Channel’s eight-hour miniseries,Â The Kennedys, costarring Greg Kinnear and due to premiere next year.
Katie- Kinda looks like Jackie, but can she pull it off?
Rachel- Does not look like Jackie as much, but is a great actress!
Who will be a betterÂ JackieÂ O.?
