Watch above: Eric Martsolf and Richard Dagenais on the Morning News.
Here are 5 things you may not know about the Emmy award-winner and daytime television hunk, Eric Martsolf.
1. His acting days might be numbered
Beware Ron Burgundy! Eric has had a taste of TV hosting and loves it.
So much so that he is exploring the idea of getting into it professionally.
He even took over the Global Montreal Morning News desk! What do you think of his hosting debut?
2. He sang a duet with Dolly Parton
Before he was a full-time actor, Martsolf was an entertainer and singer on a Hawaiian cruise ship.
He was spotted by Dolly Parton’s “people,” who recruited him to sing in Dollywood with the country star.
Parton’s first words when meeting the gorgeous Martsolf could very well have been “I will always love you” – well, actually “she asked where the bathroom was,” confessed Martslof to Global News.
Nevertheless, his three-month stint in Nashville turned into a three-year sojourn.
3. His super-hero name would be ‘Booster Gold’
“It was an episode directed by Tom Welling,” said Martsolf, adding that filming that episode was the most fun he’s ever had on the job!
Would he ever wear the costume again?
“Only to Costco,” he said in a tweet.
4. Don’t ever buy him a sweater
Especially a Christmas sweater.
If you want to please Eric, know that “gift cards are best.” Then again…
Enough said, right ladies?
5. He’s got strange enemies in strange places
“A woman threw an avocado at me at the grocery store,” he confessed to Global News.
“She was upset about how my Passion’s character Ethan was behaving with his wife.”
