Participants from the entertainment world include actor Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games), singers Common, Ne-Yo and Trey Songz, and reality TV stars Kevin Hart and Nick Cannon, both from "The Real Housewives of Hollywood." Three members of the on-air media will play in the game, highlighted by ESPN's Ryen Russillo. E! News' Terrence Jenkins and John Schriffen of ABC News will be on-hand as well.

The final participant in Friday's NBA All-Star Celebrity Challenge will be Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, who scored 17 points in last year's game.
