Anna Kendrick to Perform on TNT's Hugh Jackman-Hosted CHRISTMAS IN WASHINGTON

INTO THE WOODS and THE LAST FIVE YEARS star, Anna Kendrick, is set to join Hugh Jackman for TNT's annual holiday spectacular CHRISTMAS IN WASHINGTON.

Kendrick will perform live on stage along with the Backstreet Boys, Sheryl Crow, Janelle Monáe and Pat Monahan. The concert will also feature a special guest appearance by NBA Hall of Famer and analyst for TNT's Inside the NBA Charles Barkley. Jackman will host.

Celebrating its 32nd anniversary this year, Christmas in Washington is a holiday tradition benefiting the Children's National Health System. The concert is attended each year by the President and First Lady, as well as many other Washington VIPs. This will mark TNT's 15th year presenting Christmas in Washington, which will be taped at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., on Sunday, Dec. 15. The 25-time Emmy-winning team of George Stevens, Jr. and Michael Stevens are the show's producers.

Kendrick is known for her roles in such films as Pitch Perfect, The Company You Keep, End of Watch, The Twilight Saga, Scott Pilgrim Saves the World, ParaNorman and 50/50. In 2010, Kendrick starred opposite George Clooney and Jason Bateman in the film Up in the Air, which earned her a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination. Next year, Kendrick will be seen as Cinderella in the big-screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods. An accomplished theater veteran, Kendrick made her Broadway debut in the 1997 production of High Society, for which she received a Tony Award nomination. Kendrick's additional theater work includes A Little Night Music, My Favorite Broadway/The Leading Ladies: Live at Carnegie Hall and Broadway workshops of Jane Eyre and The Little Princess. Earlier this year, Kendrick's hit song "Cups (When I'm Gone)," from The Pitch Perfect soundtrack, climbed into to the Top 10 on Billboard's Adult Pop Song chart.

The star-studded Christmas in Washington will premiere Friday, Dec. 20, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT), exclusively on TNT.
