Ben Lyons Bio
Lyons has been featured on Access Hollywood and has worked as a segment producer on the nationally syndicated Hip-Hop Nation. His “Day in the Life of Russell Simmons” episode followed the music mogul as he prepared for the opening night of Def Poetry on Broadway. Lyons also hosted My Family’s Got GUTS, on Nickelodeon. Lyons has also appeared in Disaster Movie and The House Bunny. He is a regular contributor to Good Morning America. During Lyons’ tenure on At the Movies, he received criticism for his perceived lack of understanding of films and film history, use of positively phrased quotes in reviews which appear tailored for use on movie advertisements, and for conflicts of interest in posing for photographs with actors whose movies he later reviews. Lyons and Mankiewicz were fired on August 5, 2009, and replaced by Phillips and New York Times critic A.O. Scott as the show’s permanent hosts.
