Samuel L. Jackson and Orlando Bloom are to present at the Tony Awards 2014 tonight (08.06.14).

The 65-year-old actor and the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' hunk have joined the long list of stars set to hand out prizes at the show's 68th annual awards ceremony in New York.

Patrick Wilson, Jonathan Groff, Judith Light, LL Cool J and TI have also been confirmed to be handing out the trophies at the glamorous event, which is being hosted by Hugh Jackman and broadcast by CBS Entertainment.

Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music and Live Events, CBS Entertainment, said previously: ''We are thrilled to have Hugh Jackman return to host the Tony Awards. Hugh is the ultimate performer - actor, singer and dancer - he does it all, second to none. He is a consummate entertainer and the one you want out there hosting your live television event.''

Hugh previously fronted the Tony Awards between 2003-2005 and this will be the fourth time the 'Les Miserables' star hosts the annual ceremony, which celebrates achievement in live Broadway theatre.

The actor - who has children Oscar, 13, and Ava, eight, with wife Deborra-Lee Furness - won a Tony Award in 2004 for his Broadway portrayal in 'The Boy from Oz', which is based on the life of singer/songwriter Peter Allen.
