(Newser) – Democrats have some surprise celebrity guests of their own—ones who presumably don't intend to yell at chairs. Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, and Kerry Washington have all been secretly scheduled to speak at the convention tomorrow night, sources tell CNN. Organizers are hoping to get all three onstage at the same time. They're not the only celebrities speaking at the convention, but they're some of the highest profile, and represent some of the Democrats' core demographics: women and young voters.

So far, however, none of the three actresses' representatives have confirmed that they'll be there; Washington's pointed out that she was filming in LA. (Read more Scarlett Johansson stories.)
