Orpheus parade organizers named the pair as their celebrity monarchs Wednesday.

Mardi Gras is Feb. 21, but Orpheus is among the dozens of parade krewes rolling before Fat Tuesday.

Orpheus was founded in 1993 by actor and crooner Harry Connick Jr., who is from New Orleans. The star-studded parade is scheduled to roll the Monday night before Mardi Gras.

For last year’s Mardi Gras, the stars of the HBO television series “Treme” led the Orpheus parade.
