What you’ll find in The Ticket on your newstands, app and online tomorrow:

Christina Ricci: does she actually like being an actress? Donald Clarke attempts to find out ahead of her appearance in Bel Ami.

Choice Music Prize: co-founder Jim Carroll (that’s me) spills the beans on what really happens. Plus our guide to the runners and racers on this year’s shortlist.

Spiritualized: Jason Piece on his band’s new album “Sweet Heart Sweet Light”

This Means War: director McG (aka Joseph McGinty Nichol) on why he is completely unashamed about his commercial, populist movies.

Future Islands: Q&A with the band ahead of their appearance at Dublin’s Grand Social on March 10.

Plus reviews of new album releases (including Bruce Springsteen, The Jezabels, Blondes, Fanfarlo, The Civil Wars, Young Magic, The Decemerists, “Rough Trade Counter Culture 11″, Verneri Pohjola Quartet, Hank Roberts), movies (Wanderlust, Carancho, Blank City, Michael, This Means War, Project x, Hunky Dory, Khordorkovsky), games, apps, listings, news and much, much more.

That’s your winning Ticket in The Irish Times tomorrow in print, online and the best of The Ticket on the app.

The OTR plugs service is now open for business. Please feel free to plug and recommend stuff away to your heart’s content, but remember some simple rules: (a) declare an interest where one should be declared, (b) plugs are accepted on the whim of OTR and may be edited for length/clarity/common sense and (c) plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. The sweet, sweet smell of silage.
