File under: Kinda freaky
Roger Ebert of Siskel & Ebert fame taped an appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show today. Ebert has been making a long, hard fought battle back from cancer. Ebert had surgery in 2002 to remove a cancerous thyroid, which left him without a jaw.
Now he has a new jaw and a computer generated voice. The voice was compiled by a UK company called Cereproc using hours of DVD commentary footage Ebert had done in the past. Thus, Ebert does not ahve to sound like a Radiohead OK Computer outtake.
