Tuesday kicks off the two-week countdown to Election Day. As the presidential candidates ramp up events on the campaign trial, celebrities are throwing their A-list weight behind President Barack Obama during the home stretch.

Sarah Jessica Parker hit the battleground state of Ohio on Saturday, stumping for the Commander-in-Chief with his senior adviser Valerie Jarrett. “You’re doing the real work,” said the Sex and the City star, who hosted an Obama fund-raising dinner at her downtown New York City brownstone in June. “I’m just here to say thank you — and to say that we must win Ohio!”

And this week brings more star support for the democratic ticket. On Wednesday, Katy Perrywill lend her voice to an “America Forward” rally in Las Vegas, headlining Obama’s multi-state campaign swing. And this isn’t the first time Perry performed on behalf of the POTUS. Earlier this month, she joined Jennifer Hudson, Jon Bon Jovi, Earth, Wind & Fire and Stevie Wonder at the “30 Days to Victory” concert fundraiser at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre.

On Thursday, Michelle Obama will head to Los Angeles for another star-studded re-election event. Hollywood power couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are opening their Calabasas, Calif., home to the First Lady for a lunch co-hosted by Salma Hayek.

While a $2,500-per-person contribution to the Obama Victory Fund earns admittance to the luncheon, guests can shell out $10,000-per-couple for a prime photo op with Michelle. Or guests can opt for the all-inclusive package, paying $40,000-per-pair for lunch, a photo with Obama’s wife and an exclusive post-meal meet-and-greet.

Throughout this year, Smith has voiced his support of the president’s policies, on everything from gay marriage to raising taxes on the wealthy. And Michelle sees such similarities between the big-screen star and her husband, that she would even cast him as the leader of the free world in a biopic.

“You’d need to find someone pretty cute to play Barack,” she said. “Will Smith or Denzel Washington might be able to pull it off. Will’s got those ears, though, which might give him an edge.”
