Lindsay Lohan Will Attend White House Correspondents' Dinner

It’s not exactly “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” but Lindsay Lohan will be attending the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner with her attorney, Shawn Holley.

Speaking to the Washington Post, Steve Honig confirmed that they’ll be guests of Fox News personality Greta Van Susteren. So we’re pretty sure the “Mean Girls” actress won’t be launching a filibuster and taking over the Senate floor like the 1939 movie. But this is Lindsay, so anything can happen!

The annual star-studded event takes place on Saturday, April 28 at the Washington Hilton (not the White House, despite the name) with over 3,000 guests. Proceeds from the dinner go toward scholarships and awards that recognize aspiring and accomplished journalists.

Other celebrities expected to attend include: George Clooney, Paul Rudd, Steven Spielberg, “Hunger Games" stars Josh Hutcherson and Elizabeth Banks, Sofia Vergara, and Charlize Theron.

Late night host Jimmy Kimmel will headline the event this year, taking over duties from last year's featured speaker, "Saturday Night Live's" Seth Meyers.

As tradition dictates, President Obama will also take to the podium to deliver some jokes. We hope he slips in a one-liner about Lindsay, but with so many celebrities to choose from, the Commander-in-Chief has ample fodder for comedic relief!

Lohan, whose name is more often connected with “courthouse” than “White House,” recently finished working at the L.A. County Morgue to complete her probation stemming from a 2007 drunk driving case. Earlier this week, it was announced that she'll be portraying Elizabeth Taylor in the upcoming Lifetime movie, "Liz & Dick."

Do you think comedian Louis C.K. is kicking himself now for quitting the hosting gig?
