Kevin Smith is filling in for Roger Ebert

kevin smithIs this Ebert and Roeper's way of sticking it to fellow critic Joel Siegel? For next week's episode of Ebert & Roeper, director Kevin Smith will fill in (he says so on his website). Smith, you probably recall, is in a bit of a bouhaha with Siegel, who walked out of Clerks II in a big huff. He'll be filling Ebert's shoes for one week as the legendary movie critic recovers from emergency surgery. Smith and Roeper will review Miami Vice, Ant Bully, Talladega Nights, Barnyard and (maybe) World Trade Center.

I, for one, am totally interested in what Kevin Smith has to say about all of those movies. He's a huge movie fan and will probably formulate very insightful opinions. I can't decide what I want to see more: Smith bashing Roeper or Miami Vice.

They're both doing it. Leno on August 5th and 6th weekend. Smith on August 12 and 13 weekend.

Hollywood reporter via CNN is reporting that Jay Leno will be stepping in and no mention of the man from Red Bank.

Kevin is a bigger fan than a writer, a better critic than a director. He should be doing this and only this, permanently.

PS The Michael Mann Miami Vice is actually good.

It's good to see they're sticking with the formula of one fat guy and one thin guy.
