The Oscars will feature special appearances by Academy Award winner Charlize Theron, Channing Tatum, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Daniel Radcliffe at the upcoming Awards ceremony.
"We are quite excited to have Charlize, Chan, Joe and Dan join us on the show," said telecast producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. "We are happy to feature them as special guests in our production."
This will be Gordon-Levitt, Radcliffe and Tatum's first time appearing on the Oscar show.
Theron won an Oscar for her leading role in "Monster" and received her second nomination for her leading role in "North Country" (2005). Theron starred in 2012's "Prometheus" and "Snow White and the Huntsman."
Tatum, who starred in five films of 2012, including "Magic Mike," "21 Jump Street" and "The Vow," will next be seen in "Side Effects," due out this week, and "White House Down," due out this Summer.
Gordon-Levitt had a very busy year, with roles in "Dark Knight Rises," "Looper" and the Best Picture nominee "Lincoln." He most recently starred in "Don Jon's Addiction," which he also wrote and directed, and which premiered at Sundance last month.
Radcliffe starred as the title character in the "Harry Potter" series, which is the highest grossing film series of all time. In 2012 he starred in "The Woman in Black," and this year will be seen in "Kill Your Darlings," "Horns" and "The F Word."

Jackson, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo; returning 2011 Oscar winners Jean Dujardin, Christopher Plummer, Octavia Spencer and Meryl Streep; co-stars Mark Wahlberg and Ted; and, musical performers including Adele, Norah Jones and Barbra Streisand.
