Barbara Walters has announced seven of the 10 people who will appear on her annual "Barbara Walters Presents: 10 Most Fascinating People 2015" on ABC.

Trainwreck writer and star Amy Schumer, whose everywoman series, "Inside Amy Schumer," is as humorous as it is enlightening and who recently posed for the Annie Leibovitz-shot Pirelli calendar, will be featured. Tracy Morgan, whose welcome return to the screen was hard-won after fighting for his life after the 2014 car accident that left him comatose, will also appear on the show.

As with previous years, Walters' picks are wide-ranging, with her choices including actor Bradley Cooper, American Ballet Theater principal dancer Misty Copeland, presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders, UFC Champion Ronda Rousey and designer Donna Karan, who stepped down from the label that bears her name this year.

The most fascinating person of 2015 will be announced during the ABC News special, "Barbara Walters Presents: 10 Most Fascinating People 2015," set to air on December 17th at 9:30 p.m. ET.
