The actresses will help honour Murray on Sunday night as he is given the Mark Twain Prize for American Humour during a ceremony in Washington.

Jane performed alongside Murray on Saturday Night Live, while Emma co-starred with him in the little-seen movie Aloha.

Also new to the line-up are musician Rhiannon Giddens and Ivan Reitman, who directed Ghostbusters.

Bill's Ghostbusters co-star Dan Aykroyd has dropped out of the event because he is due to perform elsewhere.

Previously announced performers include David Letterman, Sigourney Weaver and Aziz Ansari.
