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 about how he wished he'd lived in a world in 2009 where he had "access to" the "talent" of Platt and Feldstein, imagining how he would have written a "new pilot" where they starred alongside Lea Michele, who played Rachel Berry in the original.
Murphy's post seemed to throw considerable shade at his original cast, including Cory Monteith, who died of an overdose in 2013, and Chris Colfer, the only actor aside from Jane Lynch to actually win an individual Golden Globe for the show, speaking of, uh, talent.
"I WANT TO SHOOT THIS DO OVER PILOT," Murphy nevertheless wrote, likely sending the Glee alums scrambling for the group text they presumably have for situations like this. "Maybe I will?" Jeva Lange
