Soap fans and especially those of Days of our Lives, do not miss tonight’s episode of Smallville (8/7c  CW) featuring Eric Martsolf  (Brady Black) in the role of the comic hero, Booster Gold!  The episode directed by series star, Tom Welling looks to be a thought-provoking one.  Eric filled in TV Guide about Booster, the difference between DAYS vs. Smallville, his love of comics as a kid, and a possible Booster spin-off!  Here are a few excerpts below:

Martsolf on the meaning of the episode: “Essentially what this episode is about is style versus substance. You have the epitome of style and glitz and self-promotion in Booster Gold, versus Clark Kent, who prefers to remain in the shadows as the Blur. And once you put these two guys together it’s a really interesting rivalry. Booster Gold is a glory-seeking showboat from the future.”

Martsolf on if a Booster Gold spin-off could be the order of the day: “I think that Warner Bros. would be crazy not to entertain it. [Laughs] I’m waiting for The Adventures of Booster Gold to come to fruition. It’s interesting because that always goes through your mind: How can this guy come back? Being from the future he could fly around to any time period and get into trouble, so it opens up some possibilities for a series. Anything can happen in the world of superheroes. I wouldn’t be surprised if Booster Gold showed up on my soap opera!”

Martsolf on the difference between DAYS vs. Smallville: “I think the two genres have more similarities than you think. I think the biggest difference would be that Booster Gold is clothed most of the time and Brady Black of Days of Our Lives rarely has any clothes on!”
