Members of the nominated cast of 'Parasite' will also take the stage during Sunday's ceremony.

Us star Lupita Nyong'o and When They See Us star Jharrel Jerome are among the first group of presenters set to take the stage at the 2020 SAG Awards, The Hollywood Reporter can reveal exclusively.

Nyong'o and Jerome, nominated for best actress in a motion picture and best actor in a limited series, respectively, will be joined on the SAG Awards stage by SAG-AFTRA president Gabrielle Carteris and the stars of best cast nominee Parasite: Song Kang-ho, Lee Jung-eun, Choi Woo-shik, Park So-dam and Lee Sun-kyun.

Parasite's best cast nomination is only the second ever for a foreign-language film and comes 21 years after the first best cast nod for a foreign film (Life Is Beautiful). The acclaimed thriller from South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon Ho earned 10 Oscar nominations on Monday, including a nod for best picture. It's rare for a film to win the best picture Oscar without a best cast SAG Award nod, although recent best picture Oscar winners Green Book and The Shape of Water prevailed despite the lack of a best cast SAG nomination.

The other nominees for best cast in a motion picture, the SAG Awards' equivalent of best picture, are the stars of Bombshell, The Irishman, Jojo Rabbit and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Additional presenters set to take the SAG Awards' stage, announced Friday, include Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Sterling K. Brown, Kaitlyn Dever, Jason Bateman, Lili Reinhart and Jojo Rabbit stars Roman Griffin Davis, Scarlett Johansson and Taika Waititi, who also wrote and directed the Fox Searchlight film.

In addition to sharing in Jojo Rabbit's best cast nod, Johansson is a double SAG Awards nominee for individual acting awards, nominated for best actress for her role in Marriage Story and best supporting actress for her role in Jojo Rabbit. Waller-Bridge is nominated for best ensemble in a comedy series as well as individually for her role in Amazon's Fleabag. Brown is the lone broadcast TV nominee, earning a best actor in a drama series nod for his role on NBC's This Is Us.

And other presenters include Steve Buscemi; Glenn Close; Daveed Diggs; America Ferrera; Jennifer Garner; Danai Gurira; Pedro Pascal; Rocketman's Taron Egerton; A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood's Tom Hanks; Stranger Things drama ensemble nominees Millie Bobby Brown and Cary Elwes; Game of Thrones' drama ensemble nominees Gwendoline Christie and Sophie Turner; Schitt's Creek comedy ensemble nominees Dan and Eugene Levy; The Irishman's Harvey Keitel, Anna Paquin and Ray Romano; Once Upon a Time in Hollywood's Bruce Dern, Dakota Fanning and Margaret Qualley; Bombshell's Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman, also a best drama ensemble nominee for her role in Big Little Lies; and Margot Robbie, who appears in both Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Bombshell.

SAG Awards ambassador Logan Browning and SAG-AFTRA Foundation president Courtney B. Vance will present the outstanding action performances by film and TV stunt ensembles during the official red-carpet preshow.

The 26th annual SAG Awards will air live on TNT and TBS on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, during which Robert De Niro is set to receive the Life Achievement Award, presented by Leonardo DiCaprio.
