Things are not awesome sauce between Cory Monteith and Glee creator Ryan Murphy. Monteith has been vocal about the cast being overworked and underpaid, and Murphy is getting sick of hearing about it. “Cory was the show’s golden boy but has most recently been the most vocal member of the cast complaining. He feels they are being overworked. They were filming and toured without any time to recover,” a source told Page Six. It’s gotten to the point where Murphy is reconsidering Monteith’s role on the Fox show, so says the source. Ruh roh.
Monteith believes that the cast deserves more compensation for the work they’ve been doing on the show, but Murphy “thinks Cory is causing trouble.” In a radio interview last year, Monteith said, “I got 400 bucks from it going No. 1. But you know what, that’s OK, because if I’m patient, and if this thing does really well, maybe I’ll see another 400 bucks.”
Monteith’s rep denise any friction between Monteith, who was spotted at the Windsor Arms Hotel in Toronto yesterday (September 11th) and Murphy.
