'Glee': Are Lea Michele and Ryan Murphy teaming for a real 'Funny Girl' Broadway revival? -- EXCLUSIVE

This season of Glee has seen Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) win her dream role as Fanny Brice in a Broadway revival of Funny Girl. But are Michele and series co-creator Ryan Murphy, who owns the rights to the show, planning their own real-life revival of the iconic musical? Earlier this year, Michele gave interviews saying that the pair were indeed interested in bringing Girl to the stage.

Now, Murphy is confirming those discussions. While sitting down with EW for this week’s cover on his adaptation of HBO’s The Normal Heart, Murphy revealed, “I have the rights to it. It’s something that we’re talking about. I’ve never done Broadway. I’ve always wanted to. Right now, we’re just sort of testing the waters with different people.” READ FULL STORY

'Backstrom': First Look at Fox's new Rainn Wilson crime procedural -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

Rainn Wilson is coming back to TV, but this time, he’s left the tie at home.

Above is an exclusive First Look at The Office alum in the new series Backstrom, from Bones creator Hart Hanson. Picked up for 13 episodes by Fox back in January, the show — billed as a “subversive and comic crime procedural” — follows the story of Everett Backstrom (Wilson), a brilliant but irascible Portland detective who returns to the job five years after being exiled for his often offensive behavior.

On the show, based on Leif G.W. Persson’s series of books of the same name, Wilson stars alongside (from left) Page Kennedy, Beatrice Rosen, Dennis Haysbert, Thomas Dekker, Kristoffer Polaha, and Genevieve Angelson.

Backstrom does not yet have a premiere date.

 

'American Horror Story: Freak Show': A bearded lady? A scary clown? Details on the new season -- EXCLUSIVE

FX’s American Horror Story: Freak Show, about a 1950s Florida freak show run by a German (Jessica Lange, naturally), won’t premiere until later this year — but co-creator Ryan Murphy is revealing some more details on what he and the writers have in store for the series’ fourth iteration.

“It was always a concept that Jessica and I talked about really early on,” says Murphy of Freak Show. “It was always her favorite one, which I thought was funny. I’ve had many different versions that I’ve run by her. I just love it. It feels really right. I thought it was going to be light but it’s turning out to be quite terrifyingly dark, which it feels much more like the Asylum season. But look — if you have a character named the Clown Killer, it’s going to be dark.” READ FULL STORY

'The Originals': Joseph Morgan on Klaus' greatest threat; plus, a fatherhood edition of 'What Would Klaus Do?'

With every episode of The Originals, Klaus’ list of enemies seems to grow longer. And at this point, he’s got a number of people to worry about (as much as an all-powerful hybrid needs to worry.) There are the witches, who want to kill his unborn child, his father, who’s trying to come back from the dead to kill him, Marcel, who’s readying for battle, and whatever’s going on with that key the humans have … to name a few. But heading into the penultimate episode, Joseph Morgan is most worried about two specific members of the Originals universe.

On the one hand, there’s Mikael, who Morgan identified as “the most terrifying threat,” for Klaus. But in terms of Klaus’ potential for redemption, Morgan is more focused on Klaus’ unborn child. “The emotional investment that Klaus has finally made in his child and the potential for the child to save him, to redeem Klaus is huge, so the witches, Genevieve, particularly, being a threat to his child is pretty worrying as well,” Morgan said.

So basically, Klaus needs to keep his eye on the unborn and the potentially undead. “For Klaus’ person, for his physical form, if Mikael gets his way and is able to get a body and come back somehow, I think Mikael is the biggest threat, but for Klaus’ redemption, for his sanity, for everything that’s good in him, I think that Genevieve at the moment along with Monique is the biggest threat because they take his child and he’ll be going down a pretty dark path, I would imagine.”

And speaking of Klaus’ children, he and Marcel had a great moment last week, in which both affirmed their father-son relationship, and yet, also prepared for a bloody battle. So does Morgan think Klaus will let his feelings get in the way on the battlefield? “[That] is going to be answered on Tuesday,” he said with a chuckle. “He has before let his feelings get in the way at the last minute, [but] he’s also charged at his sister with the white oak stake and only because he was stopped by Elijah did it not happen. I think he tried to stab her a couple of times and was ready to kill her, was ready to end her and then was stopped. I think he’s capable of doing very rash things, which he will deeply regret later, but the potential is there. We’ve seen how much of a monster he can be. He does care for Marcel deeply, Marcel is his adopted son, he raised him and he sired him. There’s a huge love there between those characters, but in the moment, could Klaus do something terrible? Absolutely.”

While we’re talking family, what ever happened to that one member of Klaus’ wolf bloodline that we met? Well, Morgan doesn’t know, but Klaus’ wolf family is a story he’s dying to delve into next season. “That’s a huge untapped resource we have, and I would hope moving into season 2, that we’ll see more of his background, his wolf side. We saw one of his bloodline, and we found this ring that his mother made for his true biological father, so I think the idea of exploring that, certainly for me, is very interesting, because the Klaus we met was very much a vampire. We’ve seen more of the beast in him certainly over the last season, but definitely, we could explore more of that. Wouldn’t it be amazing if we discovered a pack that was descended from his bloodline, so there’s another family of which Klaus is a member, and then you have these two families, and he’s a member of both? I should be pitching this to Julie [Plec]. Season 2, I think we just figured it out!”

So now that we figured that out, we asked Morgan to play a game called What Would Klaus Do: The Fatherhood Edition. It’s pretty much exactly what you think it is. Read his answers below: READ FULL STORY
