Mike Tyson wants a role on Downton Abbey.
The boxing legend wants to take on more acting roles since his retirement from the sport, and would love Julian Fellowes to write him a part in the British period drama set in the early 20th century. When asked whether he wanted to act more, Mike said, "I would. I'm coming to the West End soon for my one-man show, so maybe when I fly to the UK they'll give me a part on Downtown Abbey [sic]. I like that show. I'm sure they could give me a part."
The former world heavyweight champion found it tough reminiscing about the past for his new memoir, Undisputed Truth, and claims his childhood was harder to bear than the "good days" he spent in jail in the 90s in the intimate company of his female counselor. "There were some horrific things [in my childhood] that I did not enjoy. Jail was a lot easier ... I had a female counselor and we'd do it for a long time. I had some good days in there," Mike quipped.
Now that the buzz has died down from the excitement (which was quickly followed by disappointment) of the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who, BBC fans have something new to look forward to: the season premiere of Sherlock!
Announced via public stunt that was later posted to the show's Twitter account, Sherlock will return to the BBC on New Year's Day while us American folks can catch it air on PBS January 19th. Season three - which begins with the episode titled "The Empty Hearse" - will be divided into three 90-minute episodes. Episode two and three of this season are titled "The Sign of Three" and "His Last Vow," respectively.
Check out the season three trailer for Sherlock after the jump!

Emma Thompson would have "loved" to have become the first female time lord in Doctor Who.
The Oscar-winning actress denied speculation that she was offered the role given to The Thick of It actor Peter Capaldi, but said she would have jumped at the chance to join the BBC series.
"I would have said 'yes,' I'd have loved to have played Doctor Who. Maybe women need their own kind of new time traveling person?" she said, appearing alongside former Doctors Matt Smith and David Tennant on The Graham Norton Show.
On the upcoming 50th anniversary episode "The Day of the Doctor," the tenth Doctor David and eleventh Matt remain tight-lipped about the show's plot and only revealed Peter will "join at Christmas."
There can never be too many promotional videos/mini episodes/prequels/extra shenanigans/etc. of Doctor Who.
With less than two weeks from the premiere of the special 50th anniversary episode of the sci-fi BBC series, titled "The Day of the Doctor," showrunner Steven Moffat releases a mini episode in order to connect the Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann) with John Hurt's "Warrior" incarnation.

Allons-y! The official trailer for Doctor Who's 50th anniversary special is finally out, and although it doesn't really give much away, it will definitely please fans of the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant).
In addition to showing Ten uttering his trademark French line, fans catch a glimpse of the banter between Ten and his successor: "Oh, you've redecorated! I don't like it," Ten tells Eleven (Matt Smith) in regards to the T.A.R.D.I.S. interior design. There's also some quick shots of the pair comparing their sonic screwdrivers and realizing they have similar taste in eyeglasses.

The upcoming Doctor Who 50th anniversary special -The Day of the Doctor - is around the corner, and folks over at the BBC gave fans a little Eleventh Doctor treat via YouTube.
In the quasi-PSA aimed at ensuring viewers raise as much online buzz about the show as possible, Eleven (Matt Smith, sporting a nice wig after having had to shed his locks for his role in Ryan Gosling's How to Catch a Monster) urges fans to embrace hashtags. He also recommends putting hashtags on your kittens - which was apparently a thing until "a bizarre incident with a chicken put an end to them all."
Tune in to BBC America for The Day of the Doctor, which premieres on November 30.

While some fans were probably relieved that Doctor Who's team didn't cast an even younger regeneration for Twelve, many were skeptical of the explanation for casting Peter Capaldi, who has not only previously appeared in the show's fourth season episode "The Fires of Pompeii" but also in the series spin-off Torchwood (for more than one episode, might I add).
Showrunner Steven Moffat attempted to address this issue, claiming that it still follow's the show's mythos:
“We are aware that Peter Capaldi’s played a part in Doctor Who before and we’re not going to ignore the fact. I’ll let you in on this. I remember [previous showrunner] Russell [T. Davies] told me he had a big old plan as to why there were two Peter Capaldis in the Who universe, one in Pompeii and one in Torchwood. When I cast Peter, [Russell] got in touch to say how pleased he was, I said ‘Okay, what was your theory and does it still work?’ and he said ‘Yes it does, here it is.' So I don’t know if we’ll get to it… we’ll play that one out over time. It’s actually quite neat."

The time is nigh, Whovians! The 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who - whose title has been revealed as "The Day of the Doctor" (were the writers legitimately aiming to come up with one of the least exciting titles ever?) - is just around the corner. As such, the publicity team has unveiled a new poster for the grand event, this time featuring all three regenerations appearing in the episode: Matt Smith, David Tennant, and John Hurt.
Smith and Tennant are naturally in their Serious Pretty Boy poses while Hurt looks like a bada** walking away from an explosion of Daleks, a Bald Wolf sign, and a bunch of other neat-o things that are likely relevant to the plot. Tune in to BBC America on November 23 to witness the epic event!

Peter Capaldi is the new Doctor.
The 55-year-old actor was announced as Matt Smith's replacement during a BBC One special Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor earlier today.The TV show - hosted by Zoe Ball - featured live and pre-recorded appearances from Matt, previous Doctors Peter Davison and Colin Baker and former companions Katy Manning, Anneke Wills, Janet Fielding, and Bonnie Langford.
The Eleventh Doctor will perish in this year's Christmas special.
Prior to the announcement, executive producer and head writer Steven Moffat, had teased the identity of the new Doctor, saying, "The decision is made and the time has come to reveal who's taking over the TARDIS. For the last of the Time Lords, the clock is striking twelve."
After four years of playing the eleventh regeneration of the world's favorite (and currently only) Time Lord, Matt Smith has announced that he'll be hanging up his bow tie at the end of the year.
The youngest actor to take on the title role of Doctor Who, Smith released a touching statement today regarding his departure: "Doctor Who has been the most brilliant experience for me as an actor and a bloke, and that largely is down to the cast, crew and fans of the show... The fans of Doctor Who around the world are unlike any other; they dress up, shout louder, know more about the history of the show (and speculate more about the future of the show) in a way that I've never seen before."
Smith will appear in the upcoming, highly-anticipated 50th anniversary episode of the show, as well as the Christmas special, where his character will regenerate and pass the Doctor Who torch to someone else.
