(WAPO) Below is an approximate schedule for speakers at the podium on the Democratic National Convention’s third night in Charlotte, courtesy of the Obama campaign. Rep. Barney Frank (Mass.), originally scheduled to speak Wednesday, will appear tonight. Other notable speakers include Wisconsin Senate candidate Tammy Baldwin, Caroline Kennedy, former Florida governor (and former Republican) Charlie Crist, Rep. John Lewis (Ga.), Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer, Sen. John Kerry (Mass.), Jill Biden, Vice President Biden, and of course, Obama.
Three famous actresses — Eva Longoria, Scarlett Johansson and Kerry Washington — will also speak. Former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is scheduled to deliver the Pledge of Allegiance, but she isn’t listed.
There will be videos devoted to the end of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” and gay marriage.
Musical interludes include live performances by James Taylor, Marc Anthony (singing the national anthem), Mary J. Blige, and the Foo Fighters.
