An Oscar winner and three blockbuster stars have been added to this year’s Academy Awards slate. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced today that Charlize Theron, Channing Tatum, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Daniel Radcliffe will all make “special appearances” at the ceremony on Feb. 24.
Theron won a Best Actress statuette for Monster in 2004 and was nominated again for North Country in 2006. Magic Mike star Tatum, Dark Knight Rises star Gordon-Levitt, and ex-Harry Potter Radcliffe, on the other hand, will be making their first Oscar appearances.
“We are quite excited to have Charlize, Chan, Joe and Dan join us on the show,” telecast producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said in a statement. “We are happy to feature them as special guests in our production.” No further details about the quartet’s role in the program have been revealed.
Theron, Tatum, Gordon-Levitt, and Radcliffe join a list of previously announced Oscar presenters, including most of the cast of The Avengers, last year’s acting awards recipients, and Mark Wahlberg and CGI teddy bear Ted (voiced by Academy Awards host Seth MacFarlane).
