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

Twilight – Breaking Dawn: it’s Taylor bloody Lautner! The lad who landed his first leads six years in The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lava Girl in 3D talks about how removing his shirt to produce shrieks is all in a day’s work when you’re part of a multi-billion dollar franchise about vampires, werewolves and puppy love.

Snow Patrol: while you have to wonder if anyone really needs more than one Snow Patrol album in their life, millions of punters love the band’s sound and Gary Lightbody has the confidence to keep it that way.

Tabloid: Errol Morris on his documentary about the case of former Miss Wyoming Joyce McKinney, who was charged with abducting, imprisoning and raping a young Mormon missionary – her former boyfriend – in the 1980s.

Oh Land: Denmark’s biggest pop success since Aqua unleashed Barbie Girl on life after ballet – and supporting Katy Perry.

Twin Sister: Q&A with the excellent Brooklyn band who play Dublin’s Grand Social on Saturday night.

Okkervil River: Siobhan Kane talks to singer-songwriter Will Sheff

Booking the Cooks: Royseven dish up a creamy fusili with chorizo.

Plus reviews of new album releases (including David Lynch, New Look, Spectrals, Bonnie Prince Billy, Wakey! Wakey!, Bill Ryder-Jones, The Who, Liz Green, Keith Jarrett, Phil Robson, Dale Ann Bradley and At First Light), movies (Arthur Christmas, The Awakening, Immortals, The Rum Diary, Tabloid, Trespass, Wuthering Heights, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, The Silence, Weekend), 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for length/clarity/common sense and (c) plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. It was all a dream, I used to read Word Up magazine, Salt’n'Pepa and Heavy D up in the limousine
