George Clooney, Natalie Portman and Justin Timberlake are among the potential witnesses listed by Ed Asner and the 15 other plaintiffs in the lawsuit against SAG-aftra over $130 million in unpaid funds.

Thursday’s serving of the witness list comes a week and half before an Oct. 7 hearing in federal court over the union’s motion for a dismissal of the suit, which alleges extensive misconduct by the union in how it has handled foreign royalties and residuals. SAG-aftra has repeatedly brushed off the suit’s allegations and insisted it has done nothing wrong.

The plaintiffs — who have alleged that SAG and AFTRA have not made significant efforts to locate high-profile actors to pay the royalties and residuals — have  named more than two dozen highly recognizable thesps as possible witnesses  including Clooney, Portman and Timberlake.

Other possible witnesses include Julie Andrews, Gael Garcia Bernal, Nancy Sinatra, Anderson Cooper, Jamie Lee Curtis, John Goodman, »
