The roster of A-Listers already set to present at this year's Academy Awards
just got a little sexier.
Upping the va-va-voom factor is Scarlett Johansson
, it was announced Monday. And Russell Brand will be bringing his delightful comedic talents and no-holds-barred cheekiness. This will be his first Oscar appearance.
The 83rd annual Academy Awards will air live Sunday, Feb. 27, at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT) on ABC from Hollywood's Kodak Theatre.
