While he'll be joined on a last-minute swing state trip by Bruce Springsteen, the president will send a whole roster of celebrities to advocate on his behalf.

Whatever happens in Tuesday's election, Hollywood won't be accused of standing on the sidelines.

Already one of President Obama's biggest source of surrogates and financial support, celebrities are going all-in to support the incumbent in the final days of a tight re-election contest.

Bruce Springsteen is flying on Air Force One, playing opener for Obama in must-win Midwest states. Mariah Carey and Ricky Martin are joining the First Lady Michelle Obama in Florida. Anne Hathaway and Scarlett Johansson are lending their voices to top-40 radio stations; Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson are calling in to African-American radio stations. Kate Walsh and Zachary Quinto went door-to-door in swing states; Neil Diamond did phone banking for Obama in Los Angeles on Sunday.

And that's just the beginning.

The Hollywood Reporter has obtained a list of 181 surrogates hitting the trail, the airwaves and the web for the president, which includes Hollywood stars, media members, public figures and elected officials. Other getting out the vote include: John Legend, who helped bring African-Americans post-church in the traditional "soul to the polls" march on Sunday; the cast of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, going door-to-door in Wisconsin; Stevie Wonder, who is performing in Ohio; and Jay-Z, who will join Obama and Springsteen in Ohio.

Jennifer Rosenbaum, the Obama campaign's deputy national director surrogates, said the list of 181 "truly represents efforts of thousands."

"Working with the surrogates, their representatives, production teams, publicists, and members of our Entertainment Advisory Council, has been nothing but exceptional - a true partnership for which we couldn't be more grateful," Rosenbaum told THR.
