People around the DNC

CHARLOTTE, N.C. Eva Longoria, one of the co-chairs of the president’s re-election effort, will be among nine women to speak at the convention. We don’t yet know when.

Jeff Bridges will attend the nonpartisan Impact Film Festival at Mez on Wednesday. He narrated “Hunger Hits Home,” a film about childhood hunger that’s part of the festival.

“People have been saying for years: These conventions are too scripted. … A guy who went up there who wasn’t slick … and killed with the crowd? I gotta give him props for that.”

Bill Maher on Clint Eastwood’s RNC speech.
