Counting Down to the Dinner

Washington is already awash in Hollywood types, in anticipation of the White House Correspondents dinner on Saturday.

Examples: Jessica Alba and Keri Russell visited the West Wing this morning, Goldie Hawn lobbied lawmakers on behalf of children’s mental health (and appears on CBS News.com’s Washington Unplugged on Friday), and Rosie O’Donnell declared of the whole scene, “It’s like Disneyland meets Hollywood, only with lawmakers.”

On WHC Insider, there is a complete list of who is coming to the dinner (the latest: Robert DeNiro and Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, and rumors of Elton John making an appearance), as well as live streaming of some of the weekend event, including a book party for Sam Haskell.

C-Span is planning live streaming of the dinner on Saturday at 8 p.m., as well as a feature on its Website reflecting the latest rage in D.C.: Twitter feeds from those at the event.
