Roger Ebert remains one of the most influential voices in film, but when a failed surgery related to thyroid cancer left him without the ability to eat, drink or speak, he had to reinvent the way he communicated with the world.
Roger Ebert pissed off more than a few people with his comments yesterday about Ryan Dunn’s death (allegedly, the Jackass star was drink driving). Apparently enough people complained (or trolled) that Facebook took Ebert’s page down.
A battle with cancer left film megacritic Roger Ebert without much of the lower half of his face. But he will appear on his new TV show looking quite like his old self. How? A meticulously sculpted prosthetic chin.
