Morton, Headey keep Emmys rehearsals casual

– Joe Morton and Lena Headey are ready for their moment in the Emmys spotlight.

The “Scandal” actor and “Game of Thrones” actress were among the celebrity presenters on hand Sunday afternoon to rehearse ahead of Monday’s NBC broadcast.

Headey was looking relaxed in a pair of denim cutoff shorts and a white shirt as she ran through her lines. In addition to presenting, she’s up for her first-ever Emmy in the outstanding supporting actress in a drama category. Headey, who plays Cersei Lannister on “Game of Thrones,” seemed surprised at how heavy the trophy was when she was handed one to mockingly deliver to a stand-in.

Morton, dressed in a black shirt and slacks, pretended to present an Emmy to “House of Cards” just once before dashing off stage at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. He won his first-ever Emmy for outstanding guest actor in a drama series at last week’s creative arts ceremony for his fatherly role on “Scandal.”

Other presenters scheduled for Monday’s 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards include Ricky Gervais, Katherine Heigl and Hayden Panettiere. “Late Night” talk show host and former “Saturday Night Live” cast member Seth Meyers is serving as the ceremony’s host.
