Hollywood celebrities Chris Evans and Gabrielle Union love Maya Wiley, counsel to Bill  de Blasio, but stars like Spike Lee and Steve Martin have aligned behind Citigroup exec Ray McGuire.

Andrew Yang and Scott Stringer also have celeb support.

With less than three months until New York City's June 22 mayoral race primary, there is still a crowded field of candidates and no clear frontrunner: A March 24 poll from Fontas Advisors and Core Decision Analytics revealed 50 percent of likely Democratic voters are still undecided. Hollywood, though, has begun making its selections, with Maya Wiley, Ray McGuire and Andrew Yang bringing in some A-list backing.

Wiley, a lawyer and civil rights advocate, has gotten early support from Chris Evans, Gabrielle Union, Rosie O'Donnell, Cedric the Entertainer, Kathy Griffin and Debra Messing.
