Now that the wait is over and the new season of The O.C. has finally begun (finally!), we wanted to find out what some of the sexy cast members are really like. So we asked someone on the inside: fellow sexy castmate Melinda Clarke, who plays Julie, hot-to-trot mom of Marissa (Mischa Barton). "Adam Brody kind of reminds me of my husband, in that he's very quick-witted, and he's very creative," Clarke told us at a party benefiting the International Foundation for Terror Act Victims at L.A. hotspot Tokio, hosted by producer-director-writer Chris Weitz (American Pie, About a Boy). "Adam Brody is much more of a man in real life than (his character) Seth Cohen is." As for the girls, Clarke told us that Rachel Bilson, who is "such a cutie," baby-sits for her 4-year-old daughter, Kathryn, on the set, while "Mischa's more of a young, talented lady." Also at the party: Weitz's girlfriend Heather Graham, That '70s Show star Topher Grace, O.C. executive producer McG and Barton's boyfriend Brandon Davis. As for what to expect this season on the show, McG says: "Just be prepared to be taken way down. I think we showed in the finale of Season 1 that we're not afraid to have things not work out. It's not always sunny, and it doesn't always end well. There's a lot of pain and difficulty. It's not like things reconcile immediately and we let the audience off the hook. We're all in this thing together."

Whether he ends up the next James Bond or not, Julian McMahon, 36, has already shaken things up. The rumored successor to Pierce Brosnan wraps up the second season of his devilishly funny drama Nip/Tuck as Dr. Christian Troy, a wealthy, womanizing plastic surgeon. The actor, who has also signed on to play Dr. Doom in the comic-book inspired Fantastic Four movie, recently talked to PEOPLE about playing doctor, showing off his assets and primping like a girl.

Bono issued a warning along with the commencement address at the University of Pennsylvania recently: "Don't get me too excited because I use four-letter words when I get excited," he told the crowd. "The only four-letter word I'm going to use today is 'Penn.' " But he had spoken too soon: "Come to think of it, Bono is a four-letter word," he added. The rock star and activist, who picked up an honorary doctorate of law at the Ivy League school, reminisced about his last visit to the campus seven years ago for a U2 concert. "I was wearing a mirror-ball suit at the time and I emerged from a 40-foot-high revolving lemon," he said. "I guess it was at that point when your trustees decided to give me their highest honor."
