Take a first look at Katie Holmes playing Jacqueline Kennedy in "The Kennedys".

Katie landed the role of the famous first lady in the upcoming miniseries and "Little Miss Sunshine's" Greg Kinnear will star as John F. Kennedy.  The HISTORY channel miniseries is currently filming in Canada.

She flew by helicopter back to NYC on Monday night to attend the premiere of her movie "The Extra Man" (pictured below) and then had to fly back to the set in Canada to continue shooting.
