    In one month, John Fitzgerald Kennedy will have turned 100 years old, a man whose 1963 murder became the most infamous political assassination since Caesar (to heck with that Abe Lincoln thing) largely because most people don't believe the official explanation for his killing even after more than half a century.

    But another thing that distinquished Kennedy's presidency is that he, his administration and his family -- and crew of co-horts -- seemed so perfectly cast that no subsequent movie or mini-series about them (and there have been dozens and dozens) could ever really compare to the real thing.

    Both DALLAS (both brothers, lothario John and little brother Bobby, were shot, while the other brother, Ted, was a drunk who nevertheless outlasted his siblings) and certainly DYNASTY had parallels, one assumes intentionally, to the Kennedy dynamic.

    Perhaps they could have had their own TV series, cast with the family members themselves, known appropriately as....

    ... or maybe Jackie can have an updated one, especially if she starred in the sequel/spin-off, THE ONASSISES.

    I am only just realizing that Dallas used the same names as three of the Kennedy brothers. *gasp*

    And both JR and Bobby are shot four years apart. And the first shooting, TV's most infamous, was wrapped up on November 21, 1980, some seventeen years almost to the day after that real life Dallas shooting occurred.

    And then, 32 years later, Larry died on, what?, November 23rd... :eek:

    Absolutely, by design. I should've guessed what the "J" in "JR" stood for. Duh!

    And set in DALLAS.

    Also, DUH!!!

    And JR's wife would have been much better cast in that 1981 TV movie about Jackie Kennedy than all-wrong Jaclyn Smith (Smth, with her Libra Rising vocal trill, would now be much better suited to play Nancy Reagan. Seriously.)
