“Tonight Show” host Jay Leno will guest host on Buena Vista Television’s syndicated movie review program “Ebert & Roeper” for the Aug. 5-6 episode as a fill-in for Roger Ebert, who is recuperating from surgery.

Usually shot in Chicago, “Ebert & Roeper” will tape next week in Los Angeles to accommodate Mr. Leno’s schedule.

Along with co-host Richard Roeper, Mr. Leno will review the feature films “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby,” “Miami Vice,” “Little Miss Sunshine,” “The Night Listener” and “Shadowboxer.”

The following week, director Kevin Smith (“Clerks II”) will take over from Mr. Leno as the second guest co-host.
