Ryan Murphy Wants To Re-Do 'Glee' Pilot With Lea Michele & These Celeb BFFs

Ryan Murphy Wants To Re-Do 'Glee' Pilot With Lea Michele & These Celeb BFFs

Ryan Murphy has an idea to do-over the Glee pilot!

The co-creator of the series recently shared on Instagram that he wants to re-make the series with Lea Michele, Ben Platt and Beanie Feldstein.

“Imagine it’s 2009, and I lived in a world where I knew Lea Michele, Ben Platt and Beanie Feldstein (Ben and Beanie, I believe, were in high school then…and I think they dressed up as Glee characters once for Halloween?)” Ryan wrote. “If I had access to that talent, here’s the new pilot: Lea and Ben are frenemies who fight for the heart and soul of Glee Club. Ben is also on the football team, and pretty much sleeps with the entire school and is the heartthrob of McKinley.”

“Beanie is their mutual best friend, and torn. Suddenly, Beanie joins forces with Sue Sylvester, joins Glee Club and becomes the main soloist and the ruthless star of the club. Lea and Ben have to then join forces to dethrone her. I WANT TO SHOOT THIS DO OVER PILOT. Maybe I will?” he added.

UMM… YES, PLEASE! Can we make this happen?!

And THAT’s what you missed on Instagram!

Camila Cabello & Ben Platt Perform a 'Fame' Song for Grammys Tribute

A lot of stars gathered on stage at the end of the night at the 2020 Grammy Awards to pay tribute to music education!

Camila Cabello and Ben Platt are just two of the many celebs who performed during the special tribute on Sunday (January 26) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The two young stars joined lots of other artists like John Legend, Cyndi Lauper, Gary Clark Jr., Joshua Bell, Misty Copeland, Lang Lang, Common, The War and Treaty, and Lee Curreri during the performance.

As part of a tribute to Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich and his commitment to music education, the artists all performed “I Sing the Body Electric” from the movie Fame.

“It was pretty plain to me that, you know, rather than to put together a montage of great Grammy moments, which everybody has seen now a lot of times, … that this was a fresh way of doing something that really represented what I’ve tried to do with the Grammys,” Ehrlich told the Associated Press. “And it’s consistent with what the mission of the Academy is with regard to music education and music of the schools.”

FYI: Ben is wearing a Coach look.
