The annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner is just a couple of weeks away, and many of our favorite fandom stars have been invited to Hollywood’s big night in Washington, DC.
The annual dinner, which is a tradition hosted by the association of journalists who cover the White House and the President, will take place on April 28. Politico.com has kept a running tally of the guest lists announced, and reports that The Huffington Post table will host Darren Criss of Glee, True Blood‘s Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, and SNL‘s Nasim Pedrad. ABC News will seat Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Julie Bowen, and Eric Stonestreet, as well as Elizabeth Banks of The Hunger Games, while co-star Josh Hutcherson will be at the People Magazine table. Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas of Once Upon A Time will be guests of NPR.
Other Hollywood stars attending the event include Reese Witherspoon, Viola Davis, George Clooney, Pierce Brosnan, Paul Rudd, Dakota Fanning, and Claire Danes. The celebrity guests will rub shoulders with leading politicians, media personalities and influential figures in the public eye, including, of course, President Obama.
