The modern icon of film criticism beloved for his opinion-having presence on At the Movies with Siskel and Ebert (and, of course, Oprah and The Critic) will be back on small screens soon enough when Roger Ebert Presents At the Movies finds its way down to earth from satellites in space. Although he won’t be the main fixture, Ebert will use his computer-powered voice to shine the spotlight on the overlooked films of the past and present.

The co-hosts will be heavy hitters Christy Lemire – who has written for the Associated Press for over a decade – and the dreadlocked Elvis Mitchell – who is best known for his erstwhile presence at the NY Times, guest spot on an episode of Entourage, and famous love of Cuban cigars. The show will air starting January 2011 and will hopefully make its way beyond the borders of Chicago. Ebert inspired an entire generation of film fans and aspiring critics. It’s good to have him back. [Roger Ebert]
