Paula Abdul and Joey Pants in the DaySide Studio!

Amid the breakings news of the day, a couple of celebs are paying us a visit — Joey Pantoliano (search), who's starring in a new movie, and Paula Abdul (search), who's kicking off a new season of "American Idol" next week.

They're both willing to take questions and comments from viewers, so fire away — any topic is fair game — the e-mail address is dayside@foxnews.com.

A political story we're tracking is the expected announcement by Howard Dean (search) that he is officially running for chairman of the Democratic National Committee. (Primal scream optional...) What do you think of that?

See you Wednesday,

Linda
