Michelle Trachtenberg takes on the role of Marina Oswald in National Geographic Channel’s Killing Kennedy, a biopic chronicling the final years of JFK.

Oswald, of course, was the wife of Lee Harvey Oswald, the man who killed the President of the United States nearly 50 years ago in November 1963.

A photo of Michelle in character as his Russian immigrant wife has just been released. Check her out look as a nearly unrecognizable ’60s housewife:

Based on the book by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard, Killing Kennedy stars none other than Parks and Recreation star Rob Lowe as John F. Kennedy.


Once Upon a Time‘s Ginnifer Goodwin will play Jacqueline Kennedy, and Will Rothhaar will play Oswald, whose life is also documented in the film.

“It’s been an amazing week on the set of #KillingKennedy,” Trachtenberg tweeted. “Seeing @RobLowe on set today in his JFK glory is breathtaking!”

Goodwin added, “Just saw Rob in JFK GLORY. Overcome!”

The main takeaways from this: Bill O’Reilly produces literary hits as well as TV ratings, there are cool costumes, and Rob Lowe is gloriously, overwhelmingly breathtaking.
