Billy Crystal will honour Robin Williams at the 2014 Emmy Awards.
Wiliams was found dead at his Californian home on August 11 and the entertainment community has been in deep grief over his passing.
The men were close friends and they even co-starred in 1997 film Father’s Day together, so Emmy producers thought it fitting Crystal pay tribute to Robin in a special segment during next week’s ceremony.

“We felt we needed to do something powerful and memorable. Billy seemed like the perfect choice,” executive producer Don Mischer said in a statement to E! Online.
