5 of 13: 'I started watching/reading @EbertChicago in 1984. He was a good man and a fierce advocate for great film. #RIPEbert," Rainn Wilson Tweeted, in reaction to the news that Roger Ebert had passed away at age 70.

In his review of the 2011 film 'Super,' published in the Chicago Sun Times, Ebert said about Rainn Wilson's performance: 'This isn't necessarily funny. It approaches humor, however, with the work by Rainn Wilson and Ellen Page, and with the cool mocking detachment of the Kevin Bacon character, who visits as if an ambassador from another, better, movie. There's something I like very much about Wilson, who plays an unaffected klutz with about as much grace and humor as possible. He never seems to be trying to be funny, and that's a strength.'
