The Academy unveiled its next round of Oscar presenters and performers, a list headlined by previous winners Morgan Freeman and John Legend. J.J. Abrams, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Henry Cavill will also present during the ceremony on Feb. 28, and Dave Grohl will give a special performance.

“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,” Oscar producers David Hill and Reginald Hudlin said in a statement. “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.”
