Capitol Fourth to Feature Matthew Broderick, Tom Bergeron

Speedskater Apolo Ohno and composer John Williams also due

This year's July Fourth celebration on the National Mall will feature actor Matthew Broderick, country singer Josh Turner, composer John Williams, and a dozen Olympians.

The performers will take the stage on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol at 8 p.m., with the big fireworks show due at 9:10.

Broderick, along with Kelli O'Hara, will perform songs from the Tony-winning Broadway musical "Nice Work If You Can Get It," the Times-Leader reports, along with the following:

Williams will conduct a performance of his "Olympic Fanfare" alongside Olympians competing in this year's Summer Games, including archer Khatuna Lorig, fencer Daryl Homer and weightlifter Sarah Robles.

Gold medal-winning speedskater Apolo Anton Ohno will host that portion of the program, while Tom Bergeron of "Dancing With the Stars" will serve as the main host.
