The Girl Next Door
The Kennedys begins filming Monday in Toronto
On Location Vacations
The History Channels eight-part drama about Jackie O and JFK, "The Kennedys," will begin shooting on June 7 in Toronto. The movie will largely be filmed at Dufferin Gate Studio, where theyll build the Oval Office, the Department of Justice and Jack and Jackies bedroom.
Greg Kinnear and Katie Holmes are taking on the lead roles for the film, which Director Jon Cassar thinks is fitting.
I dont want her doing an imitation. Katies a mother and a wife and shes dealing with the press; I want her to grab what shes going through in her own life for the part, says Cassar, who points to Frank Langellas Oscar-nominated work in Frost/Nixon as what hes hoping his actors will achieve. You couldnt do a better job than Langella. He didnt look like Nixon, but he embodied him, and thats what were going for here.
