George Clooney has signed on to host Hollywood’s Night Under the Stars, an evening of performances celebrating the Motion Picture & Television Fund’s 95th year of helping Hollywood entertainers.

Also appearing at the event will be Matt Bomer, Yvette Nicole Brown, Michael Douglas, Derek Hough, Hugh Jackman, Norm Lewis, Jane Lynch, Johnny Mathis, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Anika Noni Rose, and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Chaired by Ann and Jim Gianopulos, the event takes place Oct. 1 at the MPTF’s Wasserman Campus in Woodland Hills, Calif.  Ticket sales via the MPTF website will benefit the foundation.

Jay Landers will produce the evening, with Emmy-winner William Ross as musical director, conducting a 17-piece orchestra.

Sponsors of the celebration include AARP Foundation, American Express, Delta Air Lines and Target.
