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!

Matthew Morrison says that the Glee cast are over the "hump" of Cory Monteith's tribute episode.
The actor admits it was "hard and emotional" to say goodbye to both the actor - who overdosed on heroin and alcohol in July - and his character Finn Hudson in a one-off episode, but says the tragedy has brought them all closer together:
"We've kind of got over that hump of the Cory tribute episode. I'm so happy we did that, it was incredibly tough, hard and emotional for everyone but we all came together, we were happy to be on the other side of that. We're a family and we all have a great relationship with each other, but that just really solidified us and made us stronger."
Matthew was scheduled to play a concert the night he heard Cory had passed away and though he considered cancelling the show, he was happy it went ahead as he found performing "therapeutic." He explained to Britain's OK! magazine, "I had two shows after he passed and thought about cancelling them but I didn't want to let people down, I didn't think Cory would want me to. The shows were so hard to do but I'm happy I did because there is nothing more therapeutic than singing."
Kanye West doesn't like how Keeping Up With the Kardashians is filmed.
The 36-year-old rapper, who is engaged to the reality show's star, Kim Kardashian, admits he refuses to appear on the E! series because he doesn't think the production is up to his "meticulous" standards. "I don't do her show just because I don't like the way the producer shoots some of the shots. I'm very particular to that. I'm meticulous right. And I like to get a different DP [Director of Photography] or whatever," The "Bound 2" hitmaker told New York's 92.3 NOW radio station.
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."
Dianna Agron is finding it "hard" to be away from the Glee cast.
The 27-year-old actress is upset at claims there was a rift between herself and the other stars of the show after she failed to appear in last month's special Cory Monteith tribute episode, and admits it has made dealing with the death of her co-star even more difficult.
Dianna - who played Quinn Fabray on the show - told Ireland's Independent newspaper, "Bad news spreads faster than anything good. And I think it's just such a shame, especially involving someone that we love so much, that the good old internet has taken everything that they want to say about it and spread it like wildfire. So I've nothing but love for that show and everybody involved in it and it was such a huge part of my life, so I think it's equally hard when I'm not there every day anymore, I don't see all of them every day anymore to have things like this fly around. It's more heartbreaking than it would be if I was there with everybody. It makes me feel even farther away from our show."
"I love Portlandia! I would do that show, in a heartbeat. I would love that. You know when Saturday Night Live did a sketch of The Walking Dead, and Bill Hader played me? He invited me to the after-party, and Fred [Armisen] was there, and I was such a big fan, I just spent the entire time trying to hug Fred over and over and over again. I think he thought I was a complete weirdo. He might be scared of me now... I'm a hugger, too. But it was literally like seven hugs, and he was looking at me like, 'Again? You want to hug again?' I might have hugged him to death. But I love the feminist bookstore skit. I love that whole show. It's awesome."

Britney Spears is to appear in her own E! documentary.
The "Work B***h" singer has let cameras into her life to show viewers what is happening with her career and family in the television special entitled I Am Britney Jean, which has been confirmed to air on December 22.
Fans will also see how she prepares for her two-year Las Vegas residency in addition to looking after her children Sean and Jayden - her sons with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
According to E!, the one hour program will offer "an intimate look at one of the most overexposed yet under-revealed stars of today as she faces one of her biggest challenges ever while finishing her album, shooting videos, doing press and being a mom." The special follows Britney as she completes recording on her eighth studio album Britney Jean and she will give her "most candid and revealing interviews ever" as she discusses her personal life.
Kerry Washington thinks her success is a "miracle."
The Scandal star, who is expecting her first child with her NFL star husband of four months, Nnamdi Asomugha, was terrified of becoming famous but she decided to become an actress because she loves telling stories.
"It's a miracle to even work in this industry. I didn't become an actress to be on the cover of magazines. That was always a little scary to me. What I love about acting is the craft of becoming different people and telling a story," the 36-year-old beauty told the December/January issue of Lucky magazine.
Despite being considered one of the most beautiful and fashion savvy women in Hollywood, the New York-born star insists it takes a lot of work to make her look good and she doesn't compare herself to other actresses: "Even for me, I think it's a real danger to compare yourself to someone on a television show. I know that I am not going to look like [Scandal character] Olivia when I wake up and go to the bathroom at 4 o'clock in the morning. On the set, it's somebody's job to follow me around all day with spackle."
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.
