Pleasantly Surprised: Minka Kelly Makes A Lovely Jackie O

5 comments

If we were playing our own little game of Caption This! for this photo, we would assume that Minka Kelly is thanking costar James Marsden for compliments on her uncanny resemblance to one Mrs. Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. "Oh, go on!" says Minka (perhaps). Aside from our own amusement, the latest image to surface from the set of The Butler does raise questions, if not captions. For instance, wasn't Kelly that actress who dated Derek Jeter and played your worst co-ed nightmare in The Roommate? She was on Friday Night Lights, too, right? Did you even see The Roommate? Yes, so many questions.

However, if Kelly's performance is as outstanding as her Jackie-O style, then we may be hearing her name much more often. Mardsen (you know him as the guy Rachel McAdams didn't marry in The Notebook, womp) plays the John to Kelly's Jackie in the new Lee Daniels-directed movie about a White House butler. While we think the latest Kennedy doppelgängers are fairly spot-on, we'll leave the final verdict (or, caption suggestion) up to you: Do you think this unexpected choice for Jackie O is a pleasant surprise, or is this a case of you've seen one look-alike, you've seen them all?
