With the Emmys just days away, producers didn’t have much time to plan a tribute to the late Robin Williams.
Still, it sounds like they’ve come up with a fitting way to honor the beloved actor and comedian, with a little assistance from his friend, Billy Crystal.
Producer Don Mischer confirmed to E! News today that Crystal would lead the tribute when the Emmys air next week.
“We felt we needed to do something powerful and memorable. Billy seemed like the perfect choice,” Mischer told E!
Crystal has been radio silent regarding his peer’s passing, his only message to date reading, “No words.”
Williams himself delivered an inspired speech honoring Jonathan Winters at the 2013 Emmy Awards, after his former “Mork & Mindy” co-star passed away last April.
The Emmy’s will air this coming Monday live on NBC. What is your favorite Robin Williams moment that you hope Billy touches on in his speech? Weigh in below!
