Inside Peter Capaldi's Wild First Season of Doctor Who

Peter Capaldi

Peter Capaldi remembers the car that came to his London home last August to drive him to the live TV special that revealed him to be Doctor Who's newest star. Because it only took him to a parking lot. "Like in a cheap British spy movie, I was dropped off and told to wait for another car to pick me up," says the actor, whose first full episode in the title role is the Season 8 premiere, airing August 23. "Then I was put in the backseat, covered in a blanket, and taken away to become the Doctor. This is a true story."

Here's the thing about Doctor Who: Its hero is a time-traveling alien (species: Time Lord) who periodically regenerates into a whole new being. Many actors have portrayed the "numbered" Docs — First... read more

Maggie Gyllenhaal Opens Up About Her Intense TV Debut In The Honorable Woman

Maggie Gyllenhaal

Maggie Gyllenhaal knows a thing or seven about taking on audacious roles. Since she broke out as James Spader's submissive assistant in the 2002 film Secretary, she's played heroines in major blockbusters (The Dark Knight) and heroin addicts in indie sleepers (Sherrybaby). The Oscar nominee has also shunned the typical Hollywood-celebrity scene, instead living a quiet life in Brooklyn with her husband, actor Peter Sarsgaard, and their two daughters. For her series-television debut, she's chosen The Honorable Woman, an eight-episode SundanceTV drama about the very real, very violent, and very current troubles between Israel and Palestine.

Video: The Beastie Boys visit Steve Buscemi on AOL's Park Bench

Steve Buscemi, Mayor Bill de Blasio

Very few episodes of Steve Buscemi's AOL talk show Park Bench actually take place on a bench. Or in a park. But the actor-host still gets his guests to talk as candidly as if they were simply hanging outside with a friend. "I'm no Dick Cavett, but I did manage to squeak by," Buscemi says of hosting the show, which unveils its final seven episodes simultaneously on Thursday, July 10. Among the guests: Method Man, the Beastie Boys, Daily Show correspondent Jessica Williams, artist Julian Schnabel, and Buscemi's Boardwalk Empire co-stars Michael Kenneth Williams and Bobby Cannavale.

"Method Man likes corny jokes, so he's my kind of guy," Buscemi says. "The Beastie Boys are very funny, and are also very good at sports. And Jessica Williams does a mean pigeon impersonation." For a sample, check out this exclusive outtake with the Beasties.
