The History Channel’s 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 they’ll build the Oval Office, the Department of Justice and Jack and Jackie’s bedroom.

Greg Kinnear and Katie Holmes are taking on the lead roles for the film, which Director Jon Cassar thinks is fitting.

“I don’t want her doing an imitation. Katie’s a mother and a wife and she’s dealing with the press; I want her to grab what she’s going through in her own life for the part,” says Cassar, who points to Frank Langella’s Oscar-nominated work in Frost/Nixon as what he’s hoping his actors will achieve. “You couldn’t do a better job than Langella. He didn’t look like Nixon, but he embodied him, and that’s what we’re going for here.”
