Those who will provide special tributes include Edie Falco, who will remember Sopranos co-star James Gandolfini; Michael J. Fox who will pay tribute to "Family Ties" producer Gary David Goldberg; Jane Lynch will remember her friend and "Glee" co-star Cory Monteith; Rob Reiner will pay tribute to his long time "All in the Family" cast member Jean Stapleton; and Robin Williams will remember his friend and mentor Jonathan Winters ("Mork and Mindy").
"The In Memoriam is a very emotional and evocative segment for the Emmys, or any annual awards program," said Executive Producer Ken Ehrlich. "These five individuals brought us such great entertainment and joy, so having their close friends share personal remembrances is something that will be very meaningful for television audiences across the country and across the generations. And, our traditional In Memoriam segment will be presented in a unique new format that will give added importance to an already much anticipated segment of the Emmy show."
Ehrlich was one of the first producers to enhance the In Memoriam feature when he added a live musical component during the "Grammys" 10 years ago. Following the traditional remembrance segment, he produced a live performance of The Clash's "London Calling" with Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Dave Grohl and others in tribute to Joe Strummer, who died earlier that year.
