Billy Crystal To Pay Tribute To Robin Williams At Emmys

The two have been friends for a while...
E! News reports that Billy Crystal will pay tribute to his friend and Father's Day co-star Robin Williams during the Emmy awards ceremony in Los Angeles on Monday. Producer Don Mischer said: "We felt we needed to do something powerful and memorable. Billy seemed like the perfect choice."
Fans have been wondering if Williams would get a special segment during the normal in memoriam segment at the Emmys, which Mischer confirmed last week.
Mischer added: "Plans for the In Memoriam segment are in discussion. While we are all still coming to terms with this week's tragic news, we are working to give Robin Williams the proper and meaningful remembrance he so well deserves."
This will be the first time Crystal speaks about Williams' death. He just wrote "no words" on Twitter several days ago. Williams passed away on August 11 after committing suicide.
