Picks and Pans Review: Joshua Jackson from Creek to Shriek

UPDATED 03/31/2008 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 03/31/2008 at 01:00 AM EDT

The Dawson's Creek alum, 29, dives back in for his new Tokyo-based thriller Shutter, playing a newlywed photographer haunted by a ghost.

HOW DID YOU LIKE TOKYO? It is so big. Getting lost is easy, but easily solved because most people will help you get to places. You can get by with English, pointing and begging.

SO YOU WERE ABLE TO FIND YOUR WAY AROUND? I knew the route from my hotel to the noodle house to the movie theater to the sushi joint and back to the hotel.

DO YOU BELIEVE IN GHOSTS? I've never personally had a ghostly experience. I'm plenty arrogant but not nearly arrogant enough to think that there's no possibility.

THEN WHAT SCARES YOU? Big roller coasters still scare me to death 'cause I always have that moment right before you come down, like, "Why did I do this?"

NEXT SEASON YOU'LL STAR IN A NEW FOX SCI-FI SHOW CALLED FRINGE. ARE YOU EXCITED TO PUT PACEY BEHIND YOU? Yeah, I can't play that character anymore. I'm not 19! As good as Dawson's Creek was, that's never been my kind of show. I'm a geek, and I'm coming back to geek home, so that excites me.
