Richard Roeper will have a few guest hosts to work with while good ol’ Roger Ebert recovers from recent surgery, and it looks like he’ll have a fun time with episode #1. Writer/director/movie-geek Kevin Smith will be stopping by to share his thoughts on some new releases. (No, not "Clerks 2.")
From Smith’s blog: "Looks like I’ll be sitting in for Roger Ebert next week, as a guest critic on "Ebert and Roeper." Kind of a cool honor, I feel. We’ll be checking out "Miami Vice," "Ant Bully," "Talladega Nights," "Barnyard" and maybe (fingers crossed) "World Trade Center." We’ll be taping next week, just prior to the Chicago WizardCon. I’ll let you know how it goes."
But there seems to have been a schedule switch, as mentioned by the man himself, at Hollywood Elsewhere:
"Yes, I was originally slated to review the flicks I’d listed, but due to a scheduling change, I’ll be reviewing "World Trade Center," "Little Miss Sunshine," "Scoop," "Accepted," and "Step Up" instead."
