TRENDING: First on CNN: DNC secretly scheduled guests: Actresses Johansson, Portman, Washington
CNN ^ | 09/05/2012 | Shannon Travis

Charlotte (CNN) - Clint Eastwood meet Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman and Kerry Washington.

The three actresses, firmly anchored in Hollywood's royalty, have been secretly scheduled to speak at the Democratic National Convention, according to a tentative schedule provided by a source to CNN.

– Check out the CNN Electoral Map and Calculator and game out your own strategy for November.

The schedule lists the three actresses as speaking on Thursday evening, the same night that President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will accept their party's respective nominations. Johansson, Portman and Washington are listed as following The Foo Fighters on the itinerary. Convention officials announced that the alternative rock band would perform last week.

A source told CNN the hope is to have the three actresses appear on stage together.

It's unclear if the schedule has been finalized or is subject to change. When contacted by CNN, a DNC official said that no final details about the Thursday program would be divulged at this time.

CNN reached out to representatives for each actress but did not receive comment for Johansson and Portman. A representative for Washington would only say the actress is currently filming in Los Angeles.

Though several celebrities are slated to attend the DNC, appearances by Johansson, Portman and Washington would surely invite special political scrutiny.

Anyone who could be persuaded by these three dingbats to vote for Obama...would never be smart enough to vote for a Republican anyway.

I hope Scarlett Johansson appears as the Black Widow and Natalie Portman as Queen Amidala in Star Wars... Now that would even be MORE memorable than Clint Eastwood...

Oh isn’t that adorable, Obama hates the 1 percent yet he is going to parade them at the DNC. Maybe while these three “Actresses” are on stage Obama can rummage through their wallets and spread their wealth around

Stupid Hollywood women looking to end their careers I guess. Box office is already down this summer. They’ve already written off conservatives. Guess they don’t need our money. May they all end up broke.

Scarlett Johansson is a great example of how makeup and good lighting can have a huge impact.

A completely average girl.

Ah, yes, Scarlett. A Hollywood braniac who's famous for boinking elderly Sean Penn at the White House Correspondent's Dinner last year.

Who's quoted as saying "it's part of being human to be tested for STDs".

Well, at least HIV testers and, ah, DC-area biohazard-capable janitors (cough) have seen increased employment with Obama's buddies on the scene....

Scarlett was being hit on by an Obama staffer in texts in 2008.

The story came out when it almost started to sound like a sex scandal. She thought it was really Barry.

The DNC had to keep it a secret with Clinton around. He’d be in a froth and dry humping the podium if he knew Hollywood chicks were around.

I saw the trailer for Clint’s new movie when I saw “2016.” Very appropriate, and I was thinking, “I will go see that to support Clint, and it also looks like a very good movie!”
