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?
