Eric Martsolf has been playing Brady Black on the daytime soap opera Days of Our Lives since 2008. But Booster Gold fans know him better as the only person to date to play a live action Booster Gold on television.
Martsolf was recently interviewed by Canadian television website, GlobalTV.com, where he doubled down on his earlier comments about the legacy of playing Booster Gold.
GlobalTV.com: From playing various roles in shows such as Days of Our Lives, Passions, and Global's own NCIS, what has been your favourite role to date?
Eric: Besides Brady Black it would have to be Booster Gold from the Smallville series because I got to fly. I got to show Clark Kent how to be Superman and it was just cool. I got a lot of credit with my kids because at the age that they were at, they truly believed that I could shoot lasers out of my wrists and if they misbehaved they thought I was going to shoot a laser at them. That role has just given me a lot back.
Booster Gold is the role that keeps on giving.

Booster Gold fans will recognize actor Eric Martsolf as the first (and so far only) actor to play our hero in a live action production. (For the record, that was on the Smallville episode "Booster" airing April 22, 2011 as the 18th episode of the series' 10th season. Remember this?)
Martsolf is still acting on daytime television and was recently interviewed by Michael Maloney for TV Insider during which he reminisced about his Smallville days.
TV Insider: You got to play humor when you played Booster Gold on Smallville. How much fun was that?
Martsolf: That was my favorite role to date. It was funny, heroic, a comic book come to life; I loved getting to play someone who’s completely larger than life. I got credit from my kids for playing a character who’s a member of the Justice League. I still have [fans] from the DC Universe and the Smallville world hit me up on social media, trying to get a Booster Gold movie going on, but now I may have to settle for playing his dad. Then again, he is a time traveler.
TV Insider: Was there anything from the Smallville episode you got to keep? Probably not the Booster Gold costume!
Martsolf: No, that custom-made to my body leather outfit, I think, was more expensive more than my first house was! I did get to keep several of the Booster Gold fan club shirts [that were in the show as a story point]. At the end of the episode, I, as Booster, throw one to Clark (Tom Welling) and say, ‘You’re an XL, right, Clark?’ I remember after the scene I gave Tom a hug [goodbye] and he said take as many of those shirts as you want.
Booster's dad, Jonar Carter, is a thoroughly bad seed.
If When Booster ever returns to the screen, Jonar would make a great antagonist. And Martsolf would get another shot at keeping his own "body leather outfit," this time as the masked Supernova. Yes, I would definitely watch that.
(The t-shirt Martsolf mentions seen in the episode, by the way, was the Booster Gold Fan Club t-shirt released in 2009 by Graphitti Designs under license of DC Comics with art by Dan Jurgens.)

Discovered this week: the website of Regal Cinemas, a theater chain with almost 600 locations worldwide, now has a page for Booster Gold the movie.
MOVIE INFO & CAST
DIRECTOR: Greg Berlanti
WRITER: Dan Jurgens, Zack Stentz
RUNTIME: 2hr 40m
Booster Gold is a superhero from the 25th century and travelled back to the 20th century to become rich and famous
Given that they haven't even started filming, much less editing, how in the world do they know it's going to be 2 hours and 40 minutes long? (Please, please, Warner Bros., don't let any Booster Gold movie run longer than 120 minutes, tops. If you can't tell your story in two hours, make it a television show!)
I'm pretty sure this isn't official. Presumably, Regal Cinemas is pulling this data from IMDB.com, which has identical details down to the same "sky-seller.com" watermarked pic of Smallville's Eric Martsolf, who, at the age of 46, is unlikely to be playing Booster on the big screen.
There hasn't been much news out of Warner about when, if ever, we'll be seeing that Booster Gold project Berlanti has been working on for the better part of a decade. The studio still has holes in its release schedule, so late 2019 remains a possibility. We'll see.

I finally found a picture of another Eric Martsolf jacket. This one belongs to cosplayer Michael Boruff.
Boruff doesn't just have a jacket; he has a Skeets! Boruff indicates on his DeviantArt page that he's put a speaker inside Skeets so that it will talk. Now that's Boosterrific!
Great job, Michael.

Do you like leather jackets? Do you want to dress like actor Eric Martsolf from Smallville? Do you have $178? If you answered yes to all three of those questions, Sky-Seller.com might be the site for you!
Or maybe you'd prefer to save $3 and order from LeatherJackets.com:
Hmm. That image looks awfully familiar. Where have I seen that before? Oh, yes, I remember now:
Sky-Seller.com is registered to a private company in Panama. LeatherJackets.com is registered to an apparel company in San Francisco (B.L.K. International) which claims to have been in business for 20 years. If you look closely, you'll see that the LeatherJackets image is a poorly retouched version of the Sky-Seller image (you can clearly see the use of the clone tool to cover where the "Sky-Seller.com" watermark has been removed).
So Sky-Seller "borrowed" and retouched the image from thomdave's original forum post, and LeatherJackets "borrowed" that image and retouched it. Neither of them appear to have anything to do with Polakow, who has her own craft store on etsy.com.
The moral of today's post, boys and girls, is before you trust someone with your $175, you might want to do a bit of homework. Anyone who takes credit for someone else's work might not be the most trustworthy vendor.
