Ginnifer Goodwin As Jackie Kennedy And Rob Lowe As JFK In 'Killing Kennedy' For National Geographic (PHOTOS)

Ginnifer Goodwin is definitely channelling her inner first lady in this newly released image featuring the actress as Jackie Kennedy in National Geographic's "Killing Kennedy," a two-hour factual drama based on the book by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard.

Goodwin is co-starring alongside Rob Lowe as 35th president John F. Kennedy, Will Rothhaar as assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, and Michelle Trachtenberg as Oswald's wife Marina. The film chronicles one of the most shocking events in American history, following two men from very different backgrounds on a collision course with fate. Check out images of Goodwin and Lowe in their iconic roles below.
