LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - "Intolerable Cruelty" star Catherine Zeta-Jones and hubby Michael Douglas will host this year's annual Nobel Peace Prize concert.
Initially, organizers for the concert had only asked for Douglas. When the actor asked if his wife could help out, however, "It didn't take us long to say `yes,'" says organizer Odd Arvid Stroemstad, according to the AP.
In fact, Stroemstad adds, "That was our first choice, but we didn't dare to ask for both at the same time."
The superstar couple will act as co-masters of ceremony at the concert featuring an array of artists: Tim McGraw, the Chieftains accompanied by Rosanne Cash, the Cardigans, opera stars Roberto Alagna and Angela Gheorghiu, Senegal's Orchestra Baobab and Broadway performer Martin Yates.
The traditional Nobel concert, which takes place Dec. 11 in Oslo, Norway, will be carried live in more than 100 countries. The day before, Iranian lawyer, writer and human rights activist Shirin Ebadi will accept her 2003 Nobel Peace Prize.
Douglas, 59, last starred in the summer comedy "The In-Laws" opposite Albert Brooks. Zeta-Jones earned an Oscar for best supporting actress in last year's "Chicago." Her current romantic comedy with George Clooney, "Intolerable Cruelty," has earned over $29 million in ticket sales so far in its third week out.
