Who would win a Presidential race between Frank Underwood and Selina Meyer?

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

Director Peter Jackson is a longtime fan of Doctor Who, and last year told EW he would dearly love to direct an episode of the long-running British science-fiction show, which returns to BBC America on Aug. 23. “They don’t even have to pay me,” Jackson said. “But I have got my eye on one of those nice new gold-colored Daleks.”

Spoiler Room is back! Get scoop on 'Supernatural,' 'Teen Wolf', more

I still remember the first time a spoiler truly failed me. It was the season 3 finale of The O.C., and I had read that someone was going to die. Everything I found online pointed to Sandy Cohen having a heart attack. The rumors crushed me to read—but after weeks of preparation, I was ready to try and come to terms with it. But as I sat on my couch, two minutes before the finale was scheduled to end, I realized that Sandy was nowhere to be seen. Instead, the show was focused on a car containing Ryan and Marissa. I started to panic. Sure enough, the spoiler had led me astray: Marissa died, and my favorite couple was torn apart. I’ll never let that go.

So why am I telling you this? Because I promise you, roomies, that I will do my very best never to lead you astray. With the return of Spoiler Room, you have my word that you will know what I know—because that’s how being roommates works, right? Just be sure not to, you know, open my mail or anything. Deal?

As always, you can tweet questions to me @samhighfill or email them to spoilerroom@ew.com.

Jenna Coleman of 'Doctor Who' talks about new season's guest stars

One of the great things about travel is the people you meet—especially if you’re traveling in a TARDIS. From Timothy Dalton to David Morrissey to Michael Gambon to Kylie Minogue, Doctor Who has welcomed a raft of guest stars over the years. That tradition is being continued in the new season, the first to star Peter Capaldi as the Time Lord, which premieres on BBC America Aug. 23. EW asked Who actress Jenna Coleman, who plays the Doctor’s traveling companion Clara Oswald on the show, to talk about working with three of the season’s new faces.

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.”

J.R. Ramirez joins 'Arrow' season 3 as Wildcat

For those Arrow fans wondering how Laurel might start to make the transition from feisty district attorney to leather-wearing vigilante, well, we might have just figured it out.

EW has confirmed that J.R. Ramirez is joining Arrow‘s third season as Ted “Wildcat” Grant. Ted is an ex-boxer who will run a gym for underprivileged youth in Starling City. But how might Laurel fit into this picture? Well, in the comics, Ted is a member of the Justice Society of America, and it just so happens that he specializes in training crimefighters such as Black Canary. So maybe Laurel will be putting that leather jacket to good use after all.

Arrow returns for season three on Wednesday, Oct. 8 at 8 p.m.

Lea Michele to appear on 'Sons of Anarchy' (Updated)

UPDATE: Michele will appear in the coming season of Sons of Anarchy‘s sixth episode, which will air Oct 14.

From the Broadway stage to … a truck stop? That seems to be the way things are headed for Glee star Lea Michele, and she seems excited about it.

Michele recently took to Twitter to announce that she is going to appear on an episode of her favorite show, Sons of Anarchy. Sons is heading into its final season, and based on all of the “Fear the Reaper” promos, there’s no telling why Michele is only sticking around for one episode.

EW has confirmed that Michele will play Gertie, “an empathetic truck-stop waitress and single mother, who connects with Gemma (Katey Sagal) during a difficult time.”

'Arrow' producer says that Olicity date is not a 'fake-out'

When Arrow fans first met Oliver Queen in season one, he was Laurel’s ex-boyfriend. You know, the one who had cheated on her when he took her sister, Sara, on a boat trip, only to have the boat sink and Sara die. Or, at least, that’s what viewers thought.

By the end of the first season, Ollie is a changed man, and he and Laurel rekindle their flame—for a time. But by that point, another girl had caught the audience’s eye. Enter Felicity Smoak, the witty IT girl who nearly drooled every time Oliver walked into a room. Their relationship seemed so impossible that fans started rooting for it.

But as time went on, romance didn’t seem so impossible anymore. To recap: By the penultimate episode of the second season, Oliver and Felicity have exchanged loving glances, had loaded conversations, and even hugged, but it wasn’t until the season-two finale that fans got something bigger. When Slade kidnapps Laurel in the season-two finale, Oliver hides Felicity at the Queen mansion, where he tells her that Slade is after the woman he loves and that Slade had taken the wrong woman when he took Laurel. He then tells the awestruck Felicity that he loves her. READ FULL STORY

Pornstache will not return for season 3 of 'Orange Is the New Black'

When Orange Is the New Black returns, it will be missing a little facial hair.

Pablo Schreiber, who plays Mendez—a.k.a. Pornstache—told the New York Post that he will not appear in the show’s third season. It’s not a huge surprise, considering that the last time we saw his character—spoiler!—he was being carted away to prison. But then again, this entire show takes place inside a prison, so there’s that.

Schreiber told the Post: “I’m not taking part in the third season. I’m a member of a show called The Brink that’s going to be on HBO. It’s a half-hour comedy with Jack Black and Tim Robbins and me [as] the three leads. I’m really excited about it.”

He went on to say that he was never a series regular on OITNB, which he is on The Brink, so really, “it’s a no-brainer,” he said. “It was a better move for me as an actor.”

That being said, Schreiber does still love OITNB, and specifically its creator, Jenji Kohan. “I feel so grateful to Orange. Jenji obviously means a ton to me. I respect her to no end. I think she writes the best dialogue on TV right now. While season three is out of the picture, beyond that is open.”

So it sounds like Pornstache could show up at a later date. As Schreiber put it, “I would go anywhere that [Kohan’s] working, and I know that our paths will cross again soon, whether it’s on Orange or on a future project.”

Schreiber later went on Twitter to calm some of the upset fans:

Reps for the show did not immediately respond for comment.
