Rachel Weisz As Jackie O?
Reports say that Oscar winning Rachel Weisz will play Jackie O in the period after JFK's assassination in a movie directed by her man, Darren Aronofsky--that is if a studio picks up the proposed project.
I've seen several actresses play the First Lady, including Margaret Colin on Broadway and Jeanne Tripplehorn in the Grey Gardens TV movie, and they both came very close.
But maybe Rachel's the one to fully capture Jackie's weird combination of warmth and hauteur.
Even if not, it would still be better than the Aronofksy/Weisz weirdie The Fountain!
