Christina Applegate will present an award at the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards later this month.
The actress - who underwent a double mastectomy earlier this year after being diagnosed with breast cancer - is nominated for one of the prestigious accolades for her role in hit US TV show 'Samantha Who?' but will also hand out one of the other prizes at the ceremony.
Other presenters at the exclusive event - which takes place in Los Angeles on September 21 - include Kiefer Sutherland, David Boreanaz, Lauren Conrad and Jimmy Kimmel.
Christina, 36, recently revealed she can't wait for new "cute boobs" after the operation, in which both her breasts were removed.
The 36-year-old actress - who is due to have reconstructive surgery in the next few months - said: "After looking at all the treatment plans available to me I had a prophylactic double mastectomy. I just wanted to be rid of this whole thing for me. This was the choice that I made, and it was a tough one.
"I'm going to have cute boobs until I'm 90. I'm going to have the best boobs in the nursing home!"
