Well, nobody saw this coming!
Well... it's who he left the club with that's causing a stir:
The world lost an amazing human being Thursday when Roger Ebert passed away, and whether or not you agreed or even liked his signature style of film critique, he was undeniably a larger than life, kind human being who inspired many throughout his lifetime.
Roger's partner-in-critique, Richard Roeper, appeared on Anderson 360 Thursday evening to talk to Anderson Cooper about his late friend, stating that the native Chicagoan had an "everyman quality."
Watch the sweet, sad interview (above)!
There will never be another film enthusiast quite like Roger…
How will we know which movies to watch/avoid without the presence of his famous thumbs?!
Oh we jest, but only to break the tension of what is otherwise a very sad occasion.
You will be sorely missed, Roger! We hope your spirit rests in peace!
