Everyone who’s gone through American history knows that President John F. Kennedy died a tragic death at the hands of an assassin, but not everyone knows the full backstory behind why it happened.
That’s where Once Upon A Time star Ginnifer Goodwin and The West Wing’s Rob Lowe come into play!
National Geographic is putting together a two hour historical drama documenting what led to the ultimate clash between John F. Kennedy and his killer.
The uber seksi Rob Lowe will have to brave up and feign death (tear), as he's been cast in the role of the president himself! Goodwin will play the lovely first lady, Jacqueline Kennedy. We LOVE the idea of Ginnifer as Jacquline; she kind of DOES resemble the former first lady!!
We’re sure this role will be a far cry from Ginnirfer’s enchanting role as Snow White in OUAT, but we have no doubts that she’ll totes get the Jacqueline down pat!!
Compare pics of Ginnifer and Rob with some old photos and the very realistic wax figures of Mr. and Mrs. Kennedy! (below)
Michelle Trachtenberg will also have a role, as the assassin's Russian wife.
Can't wait to see the final product!!
