Jon Hamm

A strong and silent ad executive, a desperate housewife and a geeky but lovable science whiz have been added to Emmys' golden list.

Nominees Jon Hamm (Mad Men) and Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory), along with Housewives' Eva Longoria Parker and Blair Underwood (The Event), will be among those handing out golden statuettes when the winners of the 62nd annual Primetime Emmys are announced.

The Aug. 29 ceremony at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles will air live on NBC starting at 8 p.m. ET.

In addition to Hamm, his Mad Men costar January Jones is also scheduled to present, as are Matthew Morrison, John Krasinski, LL Cool J, Matthew Perry, Edie Falco, Laurence Fishburne, Julianna Margulies, Keri Russell and Sofia Vergara.

In the laugh department, Emmys host Jimmy Fallon won't be the only funnyman on stage. Comedians Will Arnett, Stephen Colbert, Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais and Joel McHale will help round out the list of presenters.
