Angelina Jolie has been added to the growing list of Oscar presenters.
Telecast producers Brian Grazer and Don Mischer announced Wednesday that the actress will take the stage on Sunday, Feb. 26 to present one of the coveted Academy Awards. Jolie won an Oscar of her own back in 1999 for her supporting role in Girl, Interrupted. In 2008, she received a nomination for her lead performance in Changeling.
Jolie recently made her directorial debut with the Bosnian War-set love story In the Land of Blood and Honey. She is reported to be in talks for the Disney project Maleficent, with Robert Stromberg tapped to direct.
