Kim Allen will play Jackie Kennedy in Rob Reiner’s upcoming Lyndon B. Johnson movie “Lbj,” starring Woody Harrelson.

Bill Pullman has been cast as Ralph Yarborough and Richard Jenkins will portray Sen. Richard Russell.

Reiner will direct from a script by Joey Hartstone, which follows Johnson’s ascension from the poor hill country of West Texas to the corridors of power in Washington. He was thrust into the presidency by the 1963 assassination of John F. Kennedy and signed civil rights legislation banning racial discrimination in public facilities, the workplace and housing.

Jackie Kennedy was seated next to her husband when he was killed in a motorcade, dressed in a pink Chanel suit. After the president’s death, she refused to remove her blood-stained clothing and was wearing the suit while standing next to Johnson when he took the oath of office as President.

11 stars using body doubles for nude scenes: Keira Knightley, Mila Kunis, Owen Wilson

19 June 2015 11:20 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Game of Thrones star Lena Headey's 'Walk of Shame' nude body double has been revealed as actress Rebecca Van Cleave.

Headey opted out of going naked for the harrowing six-minute sequence "for several reasons", one of which was so she could fully focus on the emotions in her performance.

The actress also wasn't involved in the casting process for her double, adding: "I was like, 'Listen guys, she happens to have a beautiful body, but I don't do casting'. If somebody is brave enough to do this, I applaud it."

We've found 11 other actors and actresses who've spoken candidly about choosing a body double instead of baring their naked bits on the big screen.

And you may find some film scenes quite surprising (it wasn't really Kevin Costner frolicking naked in a waterfall!).
