Michelle Trachtenberg: 'Killing Kennedy' Star!

Michelle Trachtenberg is set to star in National Geographic’s upcoming two-hour original drama Killing Kennedy, according to Deadline.

The movie, based on Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard‘s book of the same name, is also set to star Rob Lowe and Ginnifer Goodwin as John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy, respectively.

The movie will follow Kennedy (Lowe) — a member of one of the United States’ most wealthy and powerful families — and his assassin Lee Harvey Oswald — a disillusioned former Marine and Marxist — until their lives collide in Dallas.

Hours after the news broke, Michelle shared her thoughts about the project!

“I am so excited for the challenge to portray Marina Oswald, and to do my first role speaking only in Russian,” Michelle told Us Weekly. “I’m the only actor playing someone who is still alive, so I want to stay as true to her as possible. This is a story about JFK’s assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald and his wife Marina. And it is fascinating.”

Production begins in June – be sure to check it out when it hits the small screen!
