DNC Plans Secret Hollywood Guest Speakers

As big supporters of President Barack Obama, actresses Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman and Kerry Washington are reportedly scheduled to appear at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday.

CNN reports there has been no official confirmation if the three women will speak at the convention, but their attendance will add a Hollywood flavor to the DNC, much like it was hoped Clint Eastwood would do for the Republican National Convention last week.

DNC organizers have made a conscious decision not to schedule a bevy of Hollywood celebrities as in previous Democratic conventions, in effort to reflect tougher economic times.

There will also be musical performances by Foo Fighters, Mary J. Blige and Earth, Wind & Fire before President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden accept their nominations.
