Also in those L’Oreal commercials? Eva Longoria, who’s one of seven Californians with a co-chair post on Obama’s re-election team. She’ll be speaking later in the night, after former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm and before Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer.

5. Alexis Bledel

It’s a little unclear what Alexis Bledel’s role at the DNC is, but she told Just Jared readers to “tune in tonight for a special live feed (at 8pm EST) to see what I’m up to here just before President Obama addresses the nation.” (But it’s good to know that Rory Gilmore is still on the Obama beat after all these years.)

6. Natalie Portman

And then there are the after parties…

She’s hosting a closing fundraiser called Super-O-Rama at the Fillmore in Charlotte with husband Cash Warren. Pitbull and Scissor Sisters are scheduled to perform. The party is a joint effort of Priorities USA Action, Majority PAC and House Majority PAC.

8. Kim Kardashian


The most famous Kardashian will be at the DNC after party at Club Hush in Charlotte, or so she tweeted.
