SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Slain gay rights activist Harvey Milk, "Star Wars" creator George Lucas and feisty football commentator John Madden are among those entering the California Hall of Fame.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and first lady Maria Shriver will induct 13 people into the hall after a red carpet walk Tuesday night.

Among those attending the event are Lucas and Madden, actress Carol Burnett, author Danielle Steel, bodybuilding pioneer Joe Weider and Air Force test pilot Gen. Chuck Yeager.

Their profiles will be displayed for the next year at The California Museum in Sacramento, along with memorabilia of their achievements.

They include Star Wars droids R2-D2 and C-3PO, legislation by inductee Gov. Hiram Johnson creating suffrage, recall and referendum and Madden's 1977 Super Bowl trophy.
