watch this, then let’s chat…
so what does it say about me that i am already more excited about this mini-series than i was about the natalie portman film? hmmm….
(1) first and foremost: BOOM.
one hundred thousand times one thousand times yes.
even matthew perry himself is like yeah, i know. i am winning here. this is the part i was destined to play. I AM TEDDY. (i mean, in some ways, we’re all kind of teddy, but still…)
though i do wonder if, in an alternate universe, charlie sheen might have also played this part…
you can see it, non?
(2) MY SWEET LORD, what is happening with diane hardcastle’s rose kennedy voice?
one the one hand, yes, rose kennedy had a distinctive, k.hep-esque voice.
on the other hand, WHOA. i thought portman’s acting was too visible in jackie (at times, it appeared she was literally biting the words), but this is even more arduous.
(3) while we’re here…
(4) and hey, jfk jr. is here:
played by some dude who looks like the love child of matt dillon and jonathan rhys meyers.
(5) jackie’s italian restaurant table cloth valentino midi with bell sleeves, ftw!!!
dear people, please please let this be historically accurate and let her be wearing this dress during a trip to iran.
i do so loathe this tendency to put people in clothes they wore and set them in scenes where they did not wear them. (here’s looking at you, diana.)
alas, given that ari is wearing a white suit in the trailer and a black suit in tehran, i’mma conclude sartorial accuracy is not top priority.
(6) but i do look forward to this…
because 70s skorpios jackie is one of the best jackies.
but will we get to see this??
also (7) could they push the water theme any harder?
lastly, this has literally nothing to do with what we’ve been talking about, but for the record:
