LOS ANGELES (January 17, 2013) - Ben Affleck, Robert De Niro, Taye Diggs, Liev Schreiber, Kerry Washington and Naomi Watts will be presenters at the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, Executive Producer Jeff Margolis announced today.

They join a growing roster of actors who will honor their colleagues at the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards that already includes Alec Baldwin, Bradley Cooper, Jeff Daniels, Viola Davis, Neil Patrick Harris, Anne Hathaway, SAG-AFTRA Co-President Ken Howard, Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lawrence, Julianna Margulies, Busy Philipps, SAG-AFTRA Co-President Roberta Reardon, Carl Reiner, Justin Timberlake and Sigourney Weaver.

Golden Globe recipient Ben Affleck is a three-time SAG Award nominee and was an Actor(R) recipient in 1999 as a member of the "Shakespeare in Love" cast. He is nominated again this year, as a cast member in "Argo," a film that he also directed and produced. He will next be seen in Terrence Malick's "To the Wonder" with Rachel McAdams and Javier Bardem; and the crime drama "Runner, Runner" opposite Justin Timberlake and Gemma Arterton.

Oscar nominee Robert De Niro earned his first SAG Awards nomination in 1997 as a cast member in "Marvin's Room." He is nominated twice this year, for his supporting role as Pat, Sr. in David O. Russell's "Silver Linings Playbook" and as a member of the film's cast. He will soon be seen in a quartet of films: the comedy "The Big Wedding" with Amanda Seyfried; the thriller "Killing Season" opposite John Travolta; Luc Besson's "Malavita" co-starring Tommy Lee Jones and Michelle Pfeiffer; and Jon Turteltaub's "Last Vegas" opposite Morgan Freeman and Michael Douglas.

Taye Diggs shared the 2003 SAG Award for outstanding performance by a motion picture cast for his work in director Rob Marshall's "Chicago." He recently completed his role of Dr. Sam Bennett on "Private Practice," a character he played for five years and originated on ABC's "Grey's Anatomy." He will next be seen in the independent feature film "The Trials of Cate McCall" opposite Kate Beckinsale, James Cromwell and Nick Nolte.

Liev Schreiber counts more than 40 feature films to his credit. This year, he has a number of upcoming projects including Showtime's "Ray Donovan"; the Mira Nair thriller "The Reluctant Fundamentalist"; John Turturro's comedy "Fading Gigolo" with Woody Allen and Sharon Stone; the sci-fi thriller "Last Days on Mars"; and Lee Daniel's "The Butler," portraying Lyndon B. Johnson.

Kerry Washington was nominated for a motion picture cast SAG Award in 2005 for her role in "Ray," opposite Jamie Foxx. She can currently be seen in Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained," alongside Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson. In May, Washington will star in the comedy "We the Peeples" opposite Craig Robinson. On the small screen, Washington stars in the critically acclaimed "Scandal" on ABC, now in its second season.

Oscar nominee Naomi Watts earned her first SAG Awards nomination in 2004 for her role in "21 Grams." She is a nominee again this year for her portrayal of Maria in "The Impossible." Upcoming films include the comedy "Movie 43" with Hugh Jackman and Emma Stone; the drama "Two Mothers" with Robin Wright; and "Diana," in which she portrays Princess Diana.
