TRENTON, N.J. – The newest members of New Jersey's Hall of Fame include actors Jack Nicholson and Danny DeVito, musicians Les Paul and Count Basie, and authors Philip Roth and Judy Blume.

The Associated Press obtained the list of the 15 inductees in advance of Thursday's 1:30 p.m. announcement.

The list includes former President Woodrow Wilson, Olympian Carl Lewis, architect Michael Graves and former Supreme Court Justice William Brennan.

Rounding out the list of 2010 honorees are baseball player Larry Doby; women's rights advocate Alice Paul; actress Susan Sarandon; astronaut Wally Schirra; and singer Frankie Valli.

The winners were chosen online by New Jerseyans and by the hall's Voting Academy of 100 state organizations.

This is the third class to be elected. The induction ceremony will be in May.
