Will Rothhaar and Michelle Trachtenberg’s first photos as Mr. & Mrs. Oswald were released yesterday, another exciting moment for Killing Kennedy, National Geographic Channel’s latest docudrama to be released in November. The docudrama follows the events in the lives of both the Kennedy family and the Oswalds, leading up to the assassination of America’s 35th President. As history would attest, the tumultuous turning points in 1965 for both the future president and his assassin would ultimately culminate in not one but two horrifying deaths that would stun a nation.
The first look at their co-stars, Rob Lowe and Gennifer Goodwin, who are set to play Mr. & Mrs. Kennedy were released earlier this month. Will Rothhaar plays the role of the disturbed and complicated Lee Harvey Oswald. Oswald, as former marine and Marxist, troubled by his past and disillusioned by his renounced U.S. citizenship struggles with his internal torment.
Michelle Trachtenberg’s role as Marina Oswald, widow of Lee Harvey Oswald, brings light to the family dynamic of the Oswalds. Michelle is pictured here as Marina Oswald, a housewife and mother of two children.
Releasing in November, 50 years following the assassination of President Kennedy, Killing Kennedy is an event not to be missed this fall.
