(Newser) – Casting for an upcoming History Channel miniseries on the Kennedys is all but complete, with Greg Kinnear as JFK and Katie Holmes as Jackie, reports Variety. Kennedy fans have been nervous about the series because executive producer Joel Surnow is a conservative, writes Michael Schneider. Among other things, it will delve into the sometimes rocky relationship between patriarch Joe (Tom Wilkinson) and sons John and Bobby (Barry Pepper).
