On Monday, Fox Searchlight released the first full trailer for the highly anticipated Kennedy biopic Jackie. There's been buzz about Natalie Portman's performance for months, but this trailer gave us our first glimpse of Caspar Phillipson as John F. Kennedy. Take a look at our side-by-sides of the actors from the trailer with their real life counterparts.

Billy Crudup as 'The Interviewer' (Presumably based on Theodore H. White)

Although IMDB and Fox Searchlight refer to Billy Crudup's character as simply "the Interviewer," Theodore H. White was given the first interview with Jackie Kennedy following JFK's assassination. His name may have been purposefully left out to allow Jackie to combine other interviews given by Jacqueline Kennedy into one film.
