Ryan Murphy on 'Glee' Cast: 'I Thought They Wanted a Parent'

Ryan Murphy clutches a baby on this week’s cover of The Hollywood Reporter.

Here’s what the 49-year-old TV showrunner shared with the mag:

On backstage problems on Glee: “To this day, I’m devastated by everything that happened with that show.”

On his relationship with the cast: “I was there with them all day long, and then we’d finish work and we’d go out and have fun all night, and I guess in a weird, twisted way, I was trying to relive the childhood I never had. I thought they wanted a parent, and they didn’t. They didn’t want me to tell them what to f—ing do. They didn’t want me to tell them how to treat each other or what the world was like at the end of the day. I wish I could go back and do that differently with a lot of those actors. Some of them I’m still very close to: Lea Michele, Chord Overstreet, Darren Criss — but there were some that didn’t work out well, and I regret that. I guess I just wish I had been able to let them figure it out for themselves.”

On originally having the rights to Orange is the New Black: “I just could never figure out how to do it. And then the option lapsed, and it became this great big thing.”
