Minka Kelly, James Marsden Star As Jackie O And John F. Kennedy (PHOTOS)

Minka Kelly certainly makes a ravishing Jackie O.

Kelly stars as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, opposite actor James Marsden, who will play John F. Kennedy, in "The Butler." The film is about the true story of Eugene Allen, a White House butler who served eight American presidents over the course of three decades.

The 32-year-old actress was photographed with Marsden on the set of the film in New Orleans on Aug. 14.

Kelly donned a simple shift dress, a string of pearls and Jackie's quintessential pillbox hat with her hair coiffed in a short style. Marsden wore a simple black suit with a skinny black tie.

For the two stars, playing one of America's most prominent and scandal-ridden couples should not be too difficult. Both have been ensnared in issues as of late, including a sex tape and an unexpected pregnancy.

A fetching couple for sure, but Kelly and Marsden are not the only two cast members who will have fans awestruck.

The star-studded cast includes the likes of Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, Jane Fonda, John Cusack, Robin Williams, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Lenny Kravitz, according to Us Weekly.

Director Lee Daniels previously discussed Whitaker and Winfrey's roles, telling USA Today: "Forest (Whitaker) plays the butler who serves many presidents and Oprah plays his wife. [Oprah] was looking for something and we're friendly and we were just trying to figure out the right thing." This will be the first time Winfrey has acted since 1998.

Quincy Jones is set to score "The Butler," according to IndieWire. He provided work for films like "The Italian Job," "The Hot Rock," "The Getaway," "In The Heat Of The Night" and "The Anderson Tapes."
