GLENDALE, Ariz. — Chicago White Sox slugger Adam Dunn says he will attend this year's Academy Awards.

Dunn said Thursday that he met with manager Robin Ventura and general manager Rick Hahn. The schedule has been worked out and Dunn says he'll be attending the Oscars with the contingent from the Matthew McConaughey film "Dallas Buyers Club."

Dunn has a small role as a bartender in the film, which is nominated for best picture. The player invested in the film as a friend of the producer, former minor-league baseball player Joe Newcomb.

Ventura encouraged Dunn to attend Sunday's ceremony in Hollywood. Dunn says he has a tuxedo and that he has to "step it up a little bit."
