If President Obama didn't have enough big names at his last dinner honoring South Korea in October, he sure is making up for it as he honors British Prime Minister David Cameron on Wednesday night.
Actors George Clooney and Damien Lewis (the star of one of Obama's favorite shows, "Homeland") are expected to attend the black-tie dinner. They will be alongside singer John Legend, movie studio boss Harvey Weinstein, Richard Branson and billionaire Warren Buffett (minus his much publicized secretary.)
