Although Newark Mayor Cory Booker hasn’t officially declared his Senate candidacy, Hollywood mega-donors are already fundraising for the rising Democratic star.

Industry bigwigs including Steven Spielberg, Kate Capshaw, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Bruce Willis, Bob Iger, Rob Reiner, J.J. Abrams, Troy Garity and Steve Bing are shelling out $5,000 to support the Senate hopeful, according to THR.

The event will be held at the Beverly Hills mansion of producer Jerry Weintraub on April 25. Both Winetraub and Willis are thought of as more conservative figures in the Hollywood community.

Last month, after serving three decades in the Senate, current New Jersey Senator Frank Lautenberg announced he would not seek reelection in 2014. Booker is thought to be the favored candidate on the Democratic side.
