Even if Keri Russell doesn't win her first Emmy on Sept. 18, the Americans actress will still take the stage at the Jimmy Kimmel-hosted awards ceremony. Russell, who is nominated in the best drama actress category for her role on the FX series, is just one of the stars in the second batch of Emmy presenters announced Wednesday. The group also includes former Oscar host Chris Rock, up for two Emmys this year; Orange is the New Black star Laverne Cox; and Emmy nominee and Game of Thrones star Kit Harington.

Other Emmy nominees set to present include Kerry Washington, Transparent star Jeffrey Tambor and Black-ish's Tracee Ellis Ross.

Meanwhile, several stars of upcoming fall TV shows will get some time in the Emmys spotlight: Friends and Episodes alum Matt LeBlanc, whose new show is CBS' Man With a Plan; Community and The Soup alum Joel McHale, whose new show is CBS' The Great Outdoors; singer-actress Mandy Moore, who stars in NBC's highly anticipated dramedy This Is Us; and Damon Wayans, star of Fox's new Lethal Weapon reboot.

Superstore star America Ferrera and Fresh Off the Boat actress Constance Wu also will present. The latest batch of presenters joins previously announced stars Aziz Ansari, Taraji P. Henson, Anthony Anderson, James Corden and Larry David.

The Emmys are set to air live on Sunday, Sept. 18, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on ABC from Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater.
