Special recognition will also be paid to honor actress Jean Stapleton, producer Gary David Goldberg and comedian Jonathan Winters.
Edie Falco will pay tribute to "Sopranos" co-star Gandolfini with Jane Lynch honoring Monteith, Michael J. Fox honoring "Family Ties" producer Goldberg, Rob Reiner honoring "All in the Family" star Stapleton and Robin Williams honoring "Mork & Mindy" co-star Winters.
"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."
