Glee 5×03 The Quarterback Spoilers From Ryan Murphy, PLUS Farewell To Finn Promo
Here’s the spoilers for Glee from Lesley Goldberg at The Hollywood Reporter on Oct. 3rd, 2013.
Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy opened up about crafting next week’s emotional tribute episode to the late Cory Monteith.
“I’ve never seen a crew that you can’t continue shooting because they’ve left the room sobbing. It was very hard. I struggled even working on it,” the showrunner says.
Following a screening and Q&A with reporters promoting FX’s American Horror Story: Coven, Murphy shared that the episode — titled “The Quarterback” in a nod to former football star Finn Hudson — was “incredibly difficult to work on” and “very difficult to shoot.”
“The episode is called ‘The Quarterback,’ and Cory really was that to that group of people — and to me particularly,” said Murphy, who locked the Glee episode Thursday. “That group of kids particularly went through the limelight and became world famous at a very difficult age and many of them really struggled with it.”
“What you will see in the episode is what really happened,” Murphy said of the hour. “Brad [Falchuk] and Ian [Brennan] and I wrote that episode and Brad directed it and those performances that you’ll see almost everything in that episode is from the first take of every performance because the actors and the crew had a really hard time shooting it.”
Murphy also noted that he received an outpouring of calls from former Glee cast members asking to appear in the episode who weren’t under contract, including Iqbal Theba (Principal Figgins).
