Ebert on Oprah

Couple of quick Roger Ebert updates.  He’ll appear on Oprah Tuesday, where he’ll debut his new computer-enhanced “voice.”

Those things always creep me out, but whatevs, it’s Ebert, right?  Also worth your time, if you enjoy Ebert’s writing, is Will Leach’s story about his interactions with the icon.

It’s pretty good, in the way reflections of our heroes often are, but you have to read because Leach sent a drunk email to Ebert asking if he had sex on a desk while working for the Daily Illini.  Ebert’s email response is pretty priceless.

Update: You can see more clips at Gawker.  But here’s  a taste.
