That's what'll happen if this year's batch of giant movie-and-TV-stars-turned-theater-actors gets nominated! (Or even if they're just asked to present--or usher.)
This will probably be the most glittering bunch to ever grace a Tonys, where most of the nominees usually have the home audience going "Huh? Who? Wha'?"
Among the possible (some more possible than others) contenders are:
Denzel Washington...Catherine Zeta-Jones...Jude Law...Scarlett Johansson
Kelsey Grammer...Christopher Walken...Daniel Craig...Hugh Jackman...Tony Shalhoub
Sienna Miller...Sean Hayes...Laura Linney...
And throw in Liev Schreiber, Nathan Lane, and Viola Davis from Doubt and this is an extravaganza to rival Night of 100 Stars, but way classier.
But there's one celebrity from last year who I assure you will NOT be on this year's telecast: Bret Michaels.
