Apt. 23"), and Damon Wayans, Jr. ("Happy Endings").

Previous Emmy champs already announced as ceremony presenters are Andre Braugher ("Homicide: Life on the Street"; "Thief"), Louis C.K. ("Louie"), Jon Cryer ("Two and a Half Men"), Claire Danes ("Temple Grandin"), Tina Fey ("30 Rock"; "Saturday Night Live"), Michael J. Fox ("Family Ties"; "Spin City"; "Rescue Me"), Ricky Gervais ("The Office"), Ron Howard ("Arrested Development"), Julianna Margulies ("E.R."; "The Good Wife"), Melissa McCarthy ("Mike and Molly"), Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory"), and Kiefer Sutherland ("24").

2012 Emmy nominees appearing on the show will be Connie Britton ("American Horror Story"), Zooey Deschanel ("New Girl"), Giancarlo Esposito ("Breaking Bad"), Jon Hamm ("Mad Men"), Julianne Moore ("Game Change"), and Amy Poehler ("Parks and Recreation").

Ginnifer Goodwin ("Once Upon a Time"), Mindy Kaling ("The Mindy Project"), Lucy Liu ("Elementary"), Emily VanCamp ("Revenge"), and Kerry Washington ("Scandal") will be presenting as well.
