Playing the role of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is no easy task – and an impressive list of actresses have portrayed the former First Lady onscreen, including Katie Holmes in The Kennedys last year. And now a new star can add Jackie O. to her resume: Minka Kelly.
The Friday Night Lights actress, 32, is set to appear as Onassis in The Butler, which premieres in 2013 and stars James Marsden as John F. Kennedy.
Kelly was recently snapped in full Jackie O garb with Marsden on the film's New Orleans set, which recalls a similar picture of Holmes in costume last year.
Do you think Kelly has what it takes to play the beloved Jackie O? Or did Holmes look better as the wife of the 35th President of the United States?

Minka Kelly fares just fine in the celebrity dating world.
The actress – who has dated Derek Jeter and been linked to Wilmer Valderrama – says that while some stunning stars grumble about never being asked out, she does not have that problem.
"I like to think I'm pretty accessible," she told PEOPLE Saturday at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic at Liberty State Park. "And if [guys] are intimidated, I wouldn't know it."
Does this mean she gets inundated with offers of romance from a slew of eligible men?

Minka Kelly was feeling fishy on Wednesday night when she popped into Pearl Dive Oyster Palace for dinner with two friends in Washington, D.C.
Tipping back a dozen raw oysters, the actress gave her pals a hands-on demonstration of how to slurp down the delicacies, in between munching on blue crab cakes and Kentucky Derby pie.
"She [seemed] very happy," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "[The group] was all laughing with each other. Minka was very sweet, at ease and casual. She [seemed] really fun."
Kelly was in such a good mood that when she was approached by a fan who was being deployed to Afghanistan the next day, she ended up paying for his meal.
