The details of Robin Williams’ Emmy Awards tribute have been confirmed. The late actor, who died on Aug. 11, will be honored at this Monday’s award show by his friend, Billy Crystal.
“We felt we needed to do something powerful and memorable,” show producer Don Mischer explained. “Billy seemed like the perfect choice.”
Robin and Billy are longtime friends, as well as costars. So far, the comedian has yet to make a statement regarding his friend’s passing — instead, he simply tweeted, “No words,” just hours after the news of Robin’s suicide broke.
