Roger Ebert has got himself a new chin. Ebert’s cancer took his jaw and voice. His voice was replaced using a voice synthesizer that was built around audio clips from his numerous interviews, TV appearances, and, of course, At The Movies clips. Now he’s had a facial prosthetic made based on, get this, a pre-existing a bust of his face.
Ebert’s commentary in recent years has been among some of the best out there. It’s strange to think that just as his voice was taken from him, he found so much more to say. I’m glad he’s getting a little help from technology to help him get back the gift of gab and put on a face for the camera. Can’t wait for his new show to air.
