Also being included in the star-studded line-up for the celebration which will air on NBC are Jay Leno, Carol Burnett, Joel McHale, as well as White's former and current co-stars.
Betty White's 90th birthday party is going to be a star-studded one. NBC has unveiled a list of celebrities who will help the comedienne celebrate her milestone, naming Hugh Jackman, Amy Poehler, Jay Leno, Joel McHale, Carol Burnett and William Shatner among others.
White's former co-stars from "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" are also tapped, with Mary Tyler Moore, Ed Asner, Valerie Harper and Gavin MacLeod confirming to show up. Cloris Leachman was invited as well and she was reportedly enthusiast, but a previous commitment prevents her for coming to the gala.
Beside her old co-workers, TV Guide reports that the Emmy Award-winning actress will be joined by her "Hot in Cleveland" co-stars, Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick and Jane Leeves, at the special event.
"Betty White's 90th Birthday: A Tribute to America's Golden Girl" will air Monday, January 16 at 8/9c on NBC. The special will feature musical performances and surprise appearances, while White will take the stage to share some memories and express her gratitude to those who've come to honor her.
