George Clooney, Brad Pitt, U2 Among Guests at Toronto International Film Festival

Salman Rushdie, Cameron Crowe and Nicolas Cage are also expected to attend, along with hundreds of other familiar names

The Toronto International Film Festival announced its guest list Tuesday, and from the looks of it, seemingly half of Hollywood is heading to Canada for the September event.

George Clooney will be there. So will his "Ocean's Eleven" pal Brad Pitt. The bands U2 and Pearl Jam will mingle with Catherine Deneuve and Salma Hayek.

But the list goes on — and on. Adam Brody? Check. Werner Herzog? Yes, sir. Nicolas Cage? Indubitably! Jon Hamm, Adam Scott, Catherine Keener, Christopher Plummer, Ryan Gosling, Clive Owen, Salman Rushdie — all of these celebrities will be in Toronto at some point during the event, which runs from September 8 to 18.

The full list of bold-faced names expected to be at the festival is as dizzying as it is impressive, and it all begins with an "Arrested Development" alum:
