· Here's one way to impress your boss. Writer/director Richard Levine based Eddie Izzard's character in the excruciating Every Day on Glee creator Ryan Murphy. (Levine worked for Murphy on Nip/Tuck.) Was Levine's former boss happy with being portrayed as a crass and desperate producer? "I gave it to him and waited anxiously, and after a few days he told me he read it, and that he really liked it," Levine told the Times. "What had been gnawing at him is that he felt the script, which was obviously based on my life, revealed that I had contempt for my job. I really explained to him that at that point fiction had taken over from fact. Our relationship was tender for a bit until he trusted that I didn't look down on the job. I truly see Ryan as a mentor, and without his support on Nip/Tuck I would have never had the courage to direct a film." Shorter answer: He wasn't happy. [NYT]
