George Clooney hosts Hollywood’s Night Under The Stars, an evening of musical performances and special presentations celebrating Motion Picture & Television Fund’s 95th year of helping those who entertain, October 1 at the MPTF Wasserman Campus in Woodland Hills, CA.

Matt Bomer, Yvette Nicole Brown, Bryan Cranston, Loretta Devine, Michael Douglas, Kate Flannery, Derek Hough, Hugh Jackman, Zachary Levi, Norm Lewis, Jane Lynch, Johnny Mathis, Sheryl Lee Ralph and Jeremy Renner are also set to appear at the event, which is directed by Richard Jay-Alexander.

“We are thrilled that our show director Richard Jay-Alexander, who just co-directed the incredible multi-city Barbra Streisand concert tour this month, is putting together a dynamic celebration of 95 years of entertainment and the people who made the magic happen,” said Ken Scherer, CEO of the MPTF Foundation, in a previous statement. “There are a few surprises that you will have to be there to enjoy.”

The event is chaired by Ann and Jim Gianopulos. Jay Landers produces, and Emmy winner William Ross serves as musical director, conducting a 17-piece orchestra.

Hollywood’s Night Under The Stars is presented by AARP Foundation, American Express, Delta Air Lines and Target, with in-kind support from Heineken, Monsieur Marcel, Red Truck and Sprinkles.
