News Round-up: Jackson, V, Franco, Catfight, Martsolf

INTERVIEW: DAYS stars Lindsay Hartley & Eric Martsolf (Arianna & Brady)
Martsolf: After PASSIONS, it’s so strange being on DAYS. The walls don’t bleed! No one’s putting you under a witch’s spell in order to have sex with you. It’s weird to be on something so character-driven. On Days we get inside the minds of our characters. We actually have conversations where we talk about our emotions.
Hartley: I like the fact that if DAYS tells the audience that something is about to happen it actually happens—and within like the next two or three episodes. And then we move on! One time on PASSIONS it took us six weeks of episodes to play out one day in Harmony time. I was in the same dress for six weeks!

Alec Baldwin & Steve Martin: Oscar's most unflappable hosts?
"They are men of elastic talents who have proved themselves on the requisite stage, screen and television," says Mary McNamara.

She adds: "Together, they have played to virtually every sort of house in every sort of role — if nothing else, they will no doubt be the most unflappable hosts in Oscar history."
