"I will wear the prosthesis on the new television show. That's not to fool anyone, because my appearance is widely known. It will be used in a medium shot of me working in my office, and will be a pleasant reminder of the person I was for 64 years." -- Film critic Roger Ebert on his new silicone face prosthesis. Ebert's lower jaw was removed when he was battling thyroid cancer.

The long-time critic's new show, "Roger Ebert Presents At The Movies," debuts Friday night.

Friday love to Roger Ebert, who's suffered through so much, but been sustained by strength of character, great medical care and the love of a good woman.
