Seven-time nominee Louis C.K. and Ricky Gervais, creator of "The Office," are among the stars who will be handing out this year's prime-time Emmys, The Associated Press reports.

Producers of the awards show made their first announcement Tuesday of Emmy presenters.

Others will include Ginnifer Goodwin, star of ABC's "Once Upon a Time," and Mindy Kaling, star and creator of the upcoming Fox comedy "The Mindy Project." In addition, Jim Parsons, who's nominated for CBS's "The Big Bang Theory," and Amy Poehler, nominated for NBC's "Parks and Recreation," are set to be on hand.

Louis C.K. is creator, writer, producer and star of the FX comedy "Louie."

The 64th Primetime Emmy Awards will air live from the Nokia Theatre in L.A. at 7 p.m. Sept. 23. Jimmy Kimmel is the host.


The "True Blood" twins have arrived.

"We can confirm that Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer recently welcomed their twins into the world," reps for the actors tell People exclusively.

"The babies were born a few weeks early but are in good health, and both Mom and Dad are overjoyed."

These are the first children together for Paquin, 30, and Moyer, 42, who were married in August 2010.

Moyer has two children - daughter Lilac, 10, and son Billy, 12 - from previous relationships.

The co-stars just wrapped their fifth season, with the finale of the hit HBO show airing Aug. 26.


Her eyes welling up with tears, actress Angelina Jolie said Tuesday she heard "horrific" and "heartbreaking" accounts from Syrian refugees who fled the civil war in their country to find shelter in a camp just across the border in Jordan, the AP reports.

The Hollywood star and U.N. refugee agency's special envoy spoke as she visited the Zaatari camp, which hosts about 30,000 Syrians displaced by the 18-month conflict that has so far claimed at least 23,000 lives, according to activists.

"I am very concerned, the world is very concerned," Jolie said during her high-profile visit aimed at focusing international attention on the plight of Syrian refugees and attracting more funding to help them. "What is very heartbreaking is when Syrian people ask you why you think no one is able to find a solution for them."

"What they described on the ground, hearing it from them is so horrific," she said, adding that the children's stories were especially moving. "When you meet so many innocent people and civilians, the people of Syria are asking who is on their side. 'Who is going to help us as the months go on?' "

The actress also said some of the refugees expressed fears "there will be no more of us" left in Syria as the relentless bloodshed grinds on.

Jolie met separately with Syrian refugee women and toured the sprawling tent city in the company of U.N. refugee chief Antonio Guterres and Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh.

"This mission that we are sharing has a key objective. It is to draw attention to the international community to express a much more stronger solidarity with Syrian refugees and the host countries that have kept their borders open to all those fleeing the conflict," said Guterres.


Michael Clarke Duncan, the Oscar-nominated star of "The Green Mile," was most commonly described as having a "big heart" during his memorial service at Forest Lawn in Los Angeles on Monday, People reports.

"Bones" and "The Finder" creator Hart Hanson spoke of fans asking for hugs, not autographs, from the 6-foot-5-inch, 300-pound actor.

But Jay Leno was one of the first to get choked up while speaking of Duncan.

"In this cynical world of Hollywood, here was a guy who was happy for every job he got," said Leno. "Just to see such a pure heart and pure kindness ... and to see him taken so early, there really are no sadder words than what might have been."

Between heavy sobs, Duncan's fiancee, Omarosa Manigault, lightened the mood when remembering the pick-up line he'd used when meeting her at a grocery store.

" 'Aren't you that mean girl from "The Apprentice?" ' " she said. "And then he worked every single day of our relationship to change that perception of me. The man you knew as an actor was my best friend."

The two had planned to marry in Gambia, West Africa, in December. Duncan, who died Sept. 3 after two months of treatment for a heart attack, was 54.

As an imprisoned convicted murderer in the 1999 hit film "The Green Mile," John Coffey was Duncan's breakout role. Said author Stephen King, "No one has ever done a character I wrote more justice."

Tom Hanks, who also attended the service, spoke in dedication to both Duncan and his mother, Jean Duncan, who sat front and center.

Other attendees included "The Green Mile" director Frank Darabont, Holly Robinson Peete, "Bones" co-stars David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel, "The Finder" co-star Geoff Stults, singers Angie Stone, Shanice, Kenny Lattimore and Stevie Wonder, who sent a video message.


Los Angeles prosecutors have charged a man with trespassing after his weekend arrest at the home of actress-singer Miley Cyrus, the AP reports.

A city attorney's spokesman says Jason Luis Rivera was charged Monday with two counts of trespassing and one count of resisting arrest.

Rivera was arrested early Saturday after police say he attempted to force his way into Cyrus' home. Police said at the time that Rivera was carrying a pair of scissors and claimed to be a friend of Cyrus. Police say he repeatedly threw himself against an outside wall as if he was trying to break into Cyrus' home.

Rivera pleaded not guilty Monday and was ordered held on $100,000 bail. He is scheduled to return to court Monday.
