The third set of presenters for "The 60th Primetime Emmy� Awards" includes Kristin Chenoweth, Kathy Griffin, Neil Patrick Harris, Conan O'Brien, Christian Slater, Don Rickles and Kate Walsh. The telecast will originate live from the NOKIA Theatre in Los Angeles on SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21 (8:00-11:00 p.m., ET/PT) on ABC.

"As we near the telecast, there will be more sets of presenters that will surprise almost everyone," said Executive Producer Ken Ehrlich. "We are pleased to have such comedic figures as Kathy Griffin and Don Rickles presenting together. In addition, we are excited to re-pair Kristin Chenoweth and Neil Patrick Harris together, as the chemistry they displayed at this year's Primetime Emmy nominations was just terrific."

Kristin Chenoweth received her first Primetime Emmy Award nomination this year for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her portrayal of Olive Snook on ABC's "Pushing Daisies." Her television credits include "Ugly Betty," "The West Wing," "The Music Man," "Annie" and her own series, "Kristin." She recently starred in the original Encores! Production, "Stairway to Paradise," which celebrated the great Broadway revue. This past spring she starred in the critically successful "The Apple Tree" at the Roundabout Theatre Company's Studio 54. Other stage credits include her Tony Award-winning performance in "You're a Good Man Charlie Brown" and her Tony-nominated portrayal of Glinda the Good Witch in "Wicked." She also performed in the Broadway comedy "Epic Proportions," "Steel Pier," and in the off-Broadway production of "Scapin." Film credits include "Deck the Halls," "RV," "Bewitched," "Running with Scissors" and "The Pink Panther." Currently Chenoweth's voice can be heard in the comedy animation adventure "Space Chimp" with Cheryl Hines.

2007 Primetime Emmy Award winner Kathy Griffin received her third Primetime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Reality Program for the Bravo reality series "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List." She has also received another nomination for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special for "Kathy Griffin: Straight to Hell." Television credits include "Suddenly Susan," "ER," "Seinfeld," "The X-Files," HBO's "Half Hour Comedy Special" and "A Hot Cup of Talk." She has also lent her voice to such animated television series as "Dilbert" and "The Simpsons."

Neil Patrick Harris received his second Primetime Emmy nomination this year for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his performance as Barney Stinson on CBS' "How I Met Your Mother." A television favorite since his Golden Globe Award-nominated role in "Doogie Howser, M.D.," Harris has firmly established himself in all mediums. Onstage he most recently starred in Arthur Miller's "All My Sons" at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles. Other recent theater credits include star turns in the London musical production of Jonathan Larson's "Tick, Tick�Boom," the Tony Award-winning musical "Assassins," "Cabaret" and "Proof." Harris' television credits include the series "Stark Raving Mad," "Will & Grace," "NUMB3RS," the miniseries "Joan of Arc" and the CBS television movie "The Christmas Blessing." His film work began with "Clara's Heart" and includes the recent release, "Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay."

Primetime Emmy Award winner Conan O'Brien received an Emmy Award in 2007 for Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Program for NBC's "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," a first for the show. In 2002 he brought his signature wit and style to his hosting duties on "The 54th Primetime Emmy Awards." He returned to host "The 58th Primetime Emmy Awards" in 2006, captivating the crowd with filmed pieces and a full-tilt song-and-dance number. Prior to his tenure as host of "Late Night," O'Brien was a writer/producer for "The Simpsons" and an Emmy-winning writer on "Saturday Night Live." Beginning June 1, 2009, he will take over the reins on NBC's "Tonight Show."

This fall Christian Slater will be seen in NBC's new drama series, "My Own Worst Enemy," as both Henry Spivey and Edward Albright, a man with two lives and personalities. Slater recently returned to London to star in "Swimming with Sharks," directed by Wilson Milan, playing producer Buddy Ackerman, the mastermind of a top studio's high grossing, ultra violent horror slate and one of Hollywood's most powerful men. In 2006 Slater reprised his critically acclaimed role as Randle P. McMurphy in the Really Useful Group's production of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," which earned him a Whatsonstage Best Actor Award and the Favorite Actor Award two years in a row at the Big Star Awards. Slater's producing credits include "Basil" and "Hard Rain," in both of which he also starred, and he served as an executive producer on Peter Berg's "Very Bad Things." In 1996 he made his directorial debut with "Museum of Love," a short film for Showtime. Recent film credits include "Slipsteam," "He Was a Quiet Man" and "Bobby."

Don Rickles received his first Primetime Emmy Award nomination this year for Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program for "Mr. Warmth: The Don Rickles Project." The special features behind-the-scenes conversations with Rickles, interviews with almost 40 comedians, actors and industry notables, including Bob Newhart, Clint Eastwood, Whoopi Goldberg, Chris Rock, Robin Williams, Billy Crystal, Robert DeNiro and Martin Scorsese, as well as a wealth of memorable TV and film clips. Still going strong at 81, Rickles is a national institution, as he continues to sell out concert venues and clubs around the country.

Kate Walsh can be seen as Dr. Addison Montgomery in the ABC drama series "Private Practice," the spin-off to ABC's "Grey's Anatomy." While on "Grey's Anatomy," she and her fellow cast members received the 2007 Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series. Walsh recently finished production on the Screen Gems thriller, "Legion," opposite Dennis Quaid and Paul Bettany. Other feature credits include "Kicking and Screaming," "Under the Tuscan Sun," "After the Sunset," "Inside Out" and "The Family Man." Television credits include "The Mike O'Malley Show," "The Mind of the Married Man" and "The Drew Carey Show."
