Roger Ebert proudly joins Beard Nation. You, sir, are looking good!

Roger Ebert has a new prosthetic chin after losing much of his lower jaw to cancer in 2006. The silicone piece was sculpted to look like his face before his surgery. “This device would fit over my lower face and neck and, colored to match my skin, would pass muster at a certain distance,” he writes on his blog. He plans on wearing the piece on his new television show, and hopes it “will be a pleasant reminder of the person I was for 64 years.”
