J.J. Abrams, John Legend, Morgan Freeman, Sacha Baron Cohen and Henry Cavill have joined the list of Oscar presenters while Dave Grohl will give “a special performance,” Oscar producers David Hill and Reginald Hudlin announced on Thursday.

Freeman and Legend are Oscar winners.

“We’re thrilled to be joined by a movie icon, a filmmaking dynamo, a larger-than-life action hero, a master of satire and two world-renowned music power-hitters,” said Hill and Hudlin. “This year’s show reflects a commitment to showcase cinematic contributions from a variety of genres, and this latest list of presenters reflects just that.”

The Oscars, hosted by Chris Rock, will be presented Feb. 28 at the Dolby Theatre. The show will air live on ABC and around the world.
