Obama's Hollywood Ambassadors: President Reportedly Shortlists Three Big Donors For Diplomatic Assignments

Four big-time Hollywood donors are on Barack Obama's shortlist for ambassadorships, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

A number of other entertainment and media figures have already been floated. Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour -- one of the campaign's most determined surrogates -- is rumored to be interested in a position in the U.K. or France (and even Donald Trump is a fan of the idea).

The Obama campaign received heavy support from the entertainment industry, with celebrities from Jay-Z to Harvey Weinstein coming through in big ways for the President's reelection bid.

Some of Obama's top donors, however, are unlikely to have time for an ambassadorship. Director Steven Spielberg and DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, who donated millions to reelection efforts, are not among the many names being tossed around as potential appointees.
