The White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner – sometimes affectionately referred to as “Nerd Prom” – is a gala to which media types through D.C. very much look forward. While it’s a fancy-pants event to begin with, the dinner often attracts a wide array of politically active celebrities to visit the District to enjoy the prom.

Mike Allen has the scoop (I mean, it’s Mike Allen, of course he has the scoop) on the types of stars you can expect to grace the event. Among others, it looks like the press corps can join Alec Baldwin, Betty White, Jeremy Piven, the Jonas Brothers, Jimmy Fallon, John Cusack, Morgan Freeman, Mariska Hargitay, and even new Redskins QB, Donovan McNabb. It looks to be another A-list caliber WHCD.
