Roger Ebert's New Chin: Critic Posts New Face Photo
Roger Ebert Has Undergone An Amazing Medical Transformation, and He Has a New Prosthetic Chin
Ebert gave his fans a sneak peak in a blog post that took two years to complete, after doctors created various molds to closely resemble what Ebert's face looked like before he had to have a portion removed due to cancer.
He said he will wear the prosthesis on his new television show, not to fool anyone, but will be a "pleasant reminder of the person I was for 64 years."
The longtime critic is producing and will appear in brief segments in his new show "Roger Ebert Presents At the Movies," which launches on PBS stations nationwide this weekend. The two main co-hosts of the show will be Christy Lemire, a critic from The Associated Press, and Elvis Mitchell from National Public Radio.
