The poster for the History Channel’s upcoming miniseries “The Kennedys” has been leaked online.
The poster shows Katie Holmes playing Jack Onassis, Greg Kinnear as John F. Kennedy, Barry Pepper as Bobby Kennedy and Tom Wilkinson as Joe Kennedy. Also in the cast is Chris Diamantopoulos, who plays Frank Sinatra.
This is the History Channel’s first scripted series and is already causing some controversy. Historians who read the earlier versions of the script criticized it for factual errors and said it was too right-wing. In the early script, supposedly, Kennedy says, speaking about his infidelity, “If I don't have someone new, I have migraines that wreck me.”
The eight-part mini series will air next year.
