Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman at Democratic National Convention?

By
Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman will reportedly speak at the 2012 Democratic National Convention (DNC).

A source has apparently provided CNN with a tentative lineup that has the two stars and Scandal's Kerry Washington "secretly scheduled to speak" at the DNC.

The news comes after Clint Eastwood attended the Republican National Convention last week (August 30), where he infamously 'debated' with an empty chair representing President Barack Obama.

Eastwood's speech has since been mocked in the media and by other celebrities, such as Jon Stewart and Kal Penn.

Johansson, Portman and Washington are said to be due to appear after The Foo Fighters on the final night of the DNC - Thursday, September 6 - which is the night when Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will accept the nominations from their party.

A source told CNN that they hope Johansson, Portman and Washington will appear together on stage.

A DNC official and representatives for the actresses have not confirmed the news.

Johansson, Portman and Washington supported Obama during the 2008 US presidential race against Senator John McCain.

The Democratic Party kicked off its convention yesterday in North Carolina.
