Hollywood stars Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, and Kerry Washington have been secretly scheduled to appear at the Democratic National Convention, CNN reported.

According to a tentative schedule obtained by CNN, the three actresses are scheduled to speak on Thursday, the same day U.S. President Barack Obama will accept his nomination and give his acceptance speech.

According to CNN, it is unclear if the schedule has been finalized or is subject to change. A DNC official refused to reveal any information regarding the schedule when asked by CNN.

An appearance by the three actresses would come one week after the Republicans' secret guest, Clint Eastwood, took the stage at their national convention in Tampa.

In his much-talked about speech, the famed director had an imaginary conversation with Obama, who was represented by an empty chair.

Bill Clinton, the popular former president who oversaw America's 1990s boom days, is scheduled to nominate Obama for a second White House term Wednesday night.
