The star of “The League” will be featured among over 60 sessions discussing film, music and techology. The festival is also expanding its convergence programming, where discussions will include topics straddling the cultural and technological intersection at the center of SXSW.

Other speakers at the festival will be Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, producer Brian Grazer and comedian Russell Brand.

“Our convergence programming exists throughout the event, and embodies some of the most unique elements of SXSW, where topics organically overlap between our core industries of music, film and interactive,” according to the organization. “The word ‘convergence’ is not just a thematic concept, but also a practical term.”

Other sessions at SXSW will cover: the Future of TV, Digital Domain and SXsports tracks, curated by Interactive & Film.
