Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announce that multiple Oscar-winners Jack Nicholson ("One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," "As Good as It Gets," "Terms of Endearment") and Dustin Hoffman ("Kramer vs. Kramer," "Rain Man") will present at the February 24 awards show.

Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announce that multiple Oscar-winners Jack Nicholson ("One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," "As Good as It Gets," "Terms of Endearment") and Dustin Hoffman ("Kramer vs. Kramer," "Rain Man") will present at the February 24 awards show.

They join previously announced Oscar-winner Jane Fonda ("Klute," "Coming Home"), Jennifer Garner, Kristen Stewart, Kerry Washington, Jennifer Hudson, Paul Rudd, Oscar winners Michael Douglas ("Wall Street," "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest") and Jamie Foxx ("Ray"), Salma Hayek Pinault, Melissa McCarthy, Liam Neeson, John Travolta, Ben Affleck, Jessica Chastain and Jennifer Lawrence, as well as Best Actress winners Halle Berry ("Monster's Ball"), Reese Witherspoon ("Walk the Line"), Sandra Bullock ("The Blind Side") and Nicole Kidman ("The Hours"), plus last year's winners Meryl Streep ("The Iron Lady"), Jean Dujardin ("The Artist"), Octavia Spencer ("The Help") and Christopher Plummer ("Beginners"). "The Avengers" cast members Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo will also present on-stage.

Charlize Theron, Channing Tatum, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Daniel Radcliffe will make "special appearances" on the Oscar show--not specifically as presenters. This suggests that they may be playing in some Seth MacFarlane skits. All four enjoyed box-office success this year: "Prometheus" and "Snow White and the Huntsman" (Theron); "Magic Mike," "21 Jump Street" and "The Vow" (Tatum); "The Dark Knight Rises" and "Looper" (Gordon-Levitt); and "The Woman in Black" (Radcliffe). Theron has won an Oscar for "Monster" and received a second nomination for "North Country." This is the first time the three male stars will appear at the Oscars.

While the telecast will feature a special 50th anniversary celebration of the James Bond franchise, the rumor that each actor who played Bond will make an appearance has been confirmed as untrue.

We will update this list as more presenters are announced. The Academy Awards take place at Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland.
