The roster of stars set to take the stage at the 68th Annual Tony Awards ceremony on June 8 has been announced.

Hosted by Tony Award winner Hugh Jackman, the evening will feature appearances by Kevin Bacon, Will Ferrell, Liev Schreiber, Emmy Rossum, Kate Mara, Lucy Liu, Clint Eastwood, Matt Bomer, Anna Gunn, Gloria Estefan, Wayne Brady, Emilio Estefan, Kenneth Branagh, Tony Goldwyn, and Vera Farmiga.

A number of performers from this past Broadway season will also make appearances during the show, including Zachary Quinto (The Glass Menagerie), Zachary Levi (First Date), Fran Drescher (Cinderella), Zach Braff (Bullets Over Broadway), Ethan Hawke (Macbeth), Leighton Meester (Of Mice and Men), and current Tony nominee Audra McDonald (Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill).

Bradley Cooper, Alessandro Nivola, and Patricia Clarkson, who are set to star in the upcoming Broadway revival of The Elephant Man, will also be on hand at the Tonys, as well as Maggie Gyllenhaal, who is slated to make her Broadway debut in Tom Stoppard's The Real Thing this fall. The most highly anticipated cameo of the evening, however, is a scheduled appearance by legendary singer/songwriter Carole King, the subject of the Tony-nominated musical Beautiful.

Presented by the Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing, the awards ceremony will be broadcast live from Radio City Music Hall on Sunday, June 8, on CBS from 8pm-11pm.
