ITK has learned that other guests at the intimate gathering will include "X-Men" director Bryan Singer, screenwriter and "Martian" producer Simon Kinberg and musician JC Chasez.

A host of celebrities will be in D.C. for the annual White House Correspondents' Association event, which features roasts of politicians and members of the media who are often in attendance.

Comedy Central's Larry Wilmore will serve as the entertainer at this year's dinner and talked with The Hill about how he's preparing, describing the black-tie gig as "one of the highlights" of his career.
