1. Ryan Murphy says he wants a Glee 'do over pilot' with Ben Platt and Beanie Feldstein

To paraphrase Ryan Murphy, "OG Glee cast, don't read this. Ben Platt and Beanie Feldstein … hello." On Friday, the Glee co-creator posted on Instagram that he wished he'd lived in a world in 2009 where he had "access to" the "talent" of Platt and Feldstein, imagining a "new pilot" where they starred alongside Lea Michele. Murphy's post threw obvious shade at the rest of his original cast, including Cory Monteith, who died of an overdose in 2013, and Chris Colfer, the only actor aside from Jane Lynch to win an individual Golden Globe for the show. "I WANT TO SHOOT THIS DO OVER PILOT," Murphy wrote, likely sending the Glee alums scrambling for the group text they presumably have for situations like this. "Maybe I will?"
