OSLO, Norway Uma Thurman will join Tommy Lee Jones as co-host of the Nobel Peace Concert honoring former Vice President Al Gore and the U.N.'s climate change panel, organizers announced Wednesday.
The Dec. 11 concert, held the day after the Nobel Peace Prize is presented in Oslo, draws top music and film stars, and is broadcast to more than 100 countries, a news release said.
Organizers earlier announced that Jones, who was Gore's roommate at Harvard University, would be one of the concert's hosts.
The lineup of performers includes Alicia Keys, Annie Lennox and Melissa Etheridge.
Thurman, 37, starred in such movies as "Pulp Fiction," "Dangerous Liaisons," and the "Kill Bill" films. She is also politically active in supporting gun control and fighting poverty.
Geir Lundestad, the secretary of the Nobel Peace Prize committee, said they were delighted that Thurman had agreed to host.
"She brings iconic style and substance to the event and will help us tremendously in our mission of spreading the global message of peace," Lundestad said.
Gore and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change share the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts to help spread awareness about man-made climate change.
