Can you tease how Amelia will fit in on Grey’s Anatomy next season? — Carla
How she’ll fit into Grey Sloan will all depend on whether or not Derek takes the D.C. job, which causes some “frustrating complications,” executive producer Shonda Rhimes tells me. But Amelia will make a surprising connection at the hospital, just not with who you’d think. “There’s a moment early on when she finds herself the keeper of some secrets that Richard didn’t necessarily want her to know by being at an AA meeting that he didn’t know she was at,” Rhimes says. “It draws her into the world in a deeper way than she anticipated.” Hmm, I wonder what that secret could be.

They’re both the leads on political series. They both crave power. They’re both the focus of this week’s EW cover story on The 25 Best Characters on TV. But what would happen if House of Cards‘ Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) ever met Veep‘s Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus)?

“I’m not even sure she’d be alive,” laughs Spacey. “First of all, Frank would probably find a way to manipulate the little guy that carries her purse around. So I’d have a mole in her office. I do have this hilarious notion that at some point on either of our shows we should be walking down a hallway and having a discussion and pass each other, and just stop, and then keep going.” READ FULL STORY

Why Peter Capaldi of 'Doctor Who' thought he'd never play the Time Lord

On August 23, Peter Capaldi will begin his first season starring in Doctor Who when the long-running British science-fiction show returns to BBC America. But it wasn’t so long ago that the Scottish actor and lifelong Who fan was certain he would never get his hands on the controls of the Time Lord’s TARDIS. “I wouldn’t have thought I would be the guy,” Capaldi says. “I wouldn’t have thought it would be me.” Why not? “Because of my age. I would have thought they were automatically heading younger.”

Kiefer Sutherland joined executive producer Jon Cassar at San Diego Comic-Con to talk about the latest installment of 24, subtitled Live Another Day, and his parting thoughts on playing Jack Bauer again. Here are the highlights:

The final season of 'Glee' will be 13 episodes

Glee won’t be returning for its final run until 2015, but it will be a shorter season than previously expected. EW has confirmed that the Fox series’ last batch of episodes will be 13 instead of the previously announced 22.

Former Fox head Kevin Reilly told reporters in May that the order for the series could change. “We need to sit down with [creator] Ryan Murphy on how to end it,” Reilly said. “The advantage of  airing it later in the season is that it doesn’t have to feel the pressure of delivering.”

First look: Yaya DaCosta as Whitney Houston in Lifetime's biopic

Lifetime’s early-2015 biopic Whitney Houston (working title)—directed by the singer’s Waiting to Exhale costar Angela Bassett and starring ­former America’s Next Top Model contestant Yaya DaCosta—just began shooting. But DaCosta has already re-created the iconic cover of the pop diva’s 1987 Whitney album. And her ­modeling background came in handy for the quick shoot. Laughs the star, “I just looked at the picture and did the pose!” Somewhere Tyra is smizing proudly.

First look: Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman in 'Doctor Who'

Brace yourselves, Whovians: Long-running cult obsession Doctor Who returns to BBC America on Aug. 23 with a new star, Peter Capaldi, and a new attitude.

'True Blood' EP Brian Buckner talks final season: 'Heads are gonna roll'

True Blood‘s final season begins this Sunday at 9 p.m. on HBO, and a warning to viewers: Prepare for major Blood-shed. “It’s the final season of True Blood, so gone are the days where we pull our punches,” teases showrunner Brian Buckner. “Heads are gonna roll.”

The premiere picks up immediately after the events of the season 6 finale, which found Bellefleur’s Bar and Grill under siege by a group of Hep-V-infected vamps. “Mayor Merlotte, Sheriff Bellefleur, and Jason Stackhouse are going to have their hands full, because not only do they have to fend off these H-vamps, but also they have to fend off this [Bon Temps] vigilante group,” he explains. In a deliberate nod to Hurricane Katrina, adds Buckner, Blood‘s tiny Louisiana town will be left on its own in the wake of the Hep-V outbreak, getting no support or protection from the government.

'The Strain': Guillermo del Toro on the creation of his FX series' big bad vampire -- EXCLUSIVE

Getting the flu is a major bummer. But it’s waaay preferable to a contagious virus that turns you into a vampire, the all-too-creepy premise behind FX’s July horror epic The Strain. Based on the book trilogy by director Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim) and author Chuck Hogan, and executive-produced by Lost’s ­Carlton Cuse, the 13-episode series focuses on an epidemiologist (House of Cards’ Corey Stoll) who must battle a parasitic sickness threatening to transform New Yorkers into plasma-loving monsters.

The main carrier of the ­disease? The Master, one of the oldest vampires in existence. The Strain’s brutal behemoth is so complicated to operate that it takes two men (actor Robert Maillet and dancer Roberto Campanella) plus several visual-effects artists to bring him to life on screen. Del Toro shares this exclusive early sketch of the villain and talks about creating the ultimate bloodsucker. READ FULL STORY

'Glee': Are Lea Michele and Ryan Murphy teaming for a real 'Funny Girl' Broadway revival? -- EXCLUSIVE

This season of Glee has seen Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) win her dream role as Fanny Brice in a Broadway revival of Funny Girl. But are Michele and series co-creator Ryan Murphy, who owns the rights to the show, planning their own real-life revival of the iconic musical? Earlier this year, Michele gave interviews saying that the pair were indeed interested in bringing Girl to the stage.

Now, Murphy is confirming those discussions. While sitting down with EW for this week’s cover on his adaptation of HBO’s The Normal Heart, Murphy revealed, “I have the rights to it. It’s something that we’re talking about. I’ve never done Broadway. I’ve always wanted to. Right now, we’re just sort of testing the waters with different people.” READ FULL STORY
