LOS ANGELES – Jack Nicholson is ready to take your call.
So are Adam Sandler, Meg Ryan, Brad Pitt and Goldie Hawn, not to mention Danny DeVito, Cindy Crawford and Al Pacino.
These celebrities have agreed to join volunteers on a phone bank Friday night at a telethon aimed at raising money for victims of last Tuesday's terrorist attacks, according to program publicist Barbara Brogliatti.
America: A Tribute to Heroes will be seen across the nation on more than 27 networks, including the Fox News Channel, from 9 to 11 p.m. EDT.
Tom Hanks, Bruce Springsteen, Julia Roberts, Jim Carrey, Clint Eastwood, Paul Simon, Will Smith and Billy Joel are among the stars who have agreed to take the stage during the event.
The show will be broadcast live on the East Coast from stages in New York and Los Angeles. There will be no live audience, and organizers refuse to say where the events will be held for security reasons.
The United Way announced that its "September 11 Fund" has been designated to receive donations raised from the benefit.
Other stars planning to answer phones during the two-hour simulcast include: John Cusack, Salma Hayek, Chris Rock and Sylvester Stallone.
