Hollywood stars Jane Fonda and Jack Nicholson are among the latest notable figures being inducted into the California Hall of Fame.

Musicians Dave Brubeck and Quincy Jones, fitness guru Jack LaLanne, sculptor Robert Graham and chef Alice Waters will also be inducted at the Dec. 15 ceremony in Sacramento.

"Dr. Seuss" author Theodor Geisel, photographer Dorothea Lange, architect Julia Morgan, scientist Linus Pauling and former Gov. Leland Stanford will be inducted posthumously.

First lady Maria Shriver started the program in 2006 to honor those who've helped shape the state.

Fonda's induction comes nearly 30 years after the state Senate rejected her nomination to the California Arts Council because of her campaign against the Vietnam War.
