During his battle with thyroid and salivary gland cancer, part of Roger's jaw was removed.

He wrote that his new look was "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. Symbolically, it's as if my illness never happened and, hey, here I still am, on the show with these new kids," he wrote.

The new show Roger Ebert Presents At The Movies premieres on Friday night.
