Phil McGraw is a TV therapist who tells people what to do to fix their terrible lives, and they love him for it. That sure sounds like a recipe for becoming a power-hungry madman.

We’re not saying he is. But man, that recipe

As an example of his possible power-hungry madness, consider the former employee of the Dr. Phil show who recently filed a lawsuit claiming the host kept 300 employees captive in a locked, guarded room. This was apparently done so he could try to figure out who leaked some information to the media – in addition to the kidnapping, the good doctor allegedly took everyone’s phones and warned them “If you fuck with me, I’ll fuck with you.”

McGraw and his producers deny that version of events, and have claimed it was a simple work meeting. For now, at least, a judge has refused to dismiss the charges.

This isn’t the first run in Dr. Phil has had with this bizarrely specific charge, though.

You have done a lot of TV. I feel like that’s something people who know you best through your theater work might not know about you. What about TV work has continued to be appealing to you as you’ve experienced all this success in theater?

Well, theater is kind of my life blood. Not kind of – it is my life blood. It’s informative in a way I think no other medium is because you’re having a very real and immediate connection with an audience and with the material in front of you and you get response in real time. I’m coming to terms with the idea of shooting [a TV show]. We’re about to start our sixth episode and very few people have seen it because we haven’t premiered yet. And so I’m curious as to what my response is going to be watching it. [In theater] you’re an ensemble working in real time, but you’re going to know at the end of the night how it went by the audience’s response.

What makes TV work something you still seek out as a supplement to your theater “life blood,” as you call it?

I never really got into the business thinking that I just wanted to do one thing. You know, I never said, “I want to be a moviestar and that’s it.” I came into the business where Will Smith was pretty much taking over the world – or defending it, if you will. [Laughs] He was showing success on so many different fronts – television, recording, movies. So that was really my prototype in terms of looking at the business and seeing where you fit in. And I’ve studied people like Gordon Parks, a true renaissance men. That’s always been my ideal. To be in a situation where I am in a Broadway show, I am shooting a TV show, I am writing a new album – those are things that are exciting to me.

How are you finding that balance between being on the show and being on “Hamilton” at the same time?

Scheduling is tricky. But fortunately my producers at “Hamilton” and my producers at “Bull” have been very patient and very understanding. CBS saw what we were doing at “Hamilton” and how important it was not only for the world at large, but for me personally. They they were interested in letting me continue that as long as I felt it was possible. “Hamilton” is something I’ve done for quite a while. When I walk through the door, I know what the process requires, and it requires a lot. It’s just one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life. So while I’m not going to do it forever, it certainly is a very satisfying and fulfilling thing to be able to try to do good work on television and then go to Richard Rodgers [Theater] and try to climb that mountain again.

Are you still feeling good there? We saw some pretty big departures over the summer...

It’s really, at this point, just about being able to do justice to the role with what I have in the tank. Right now my tank is pretty full, and when I feel like I’m not really able to perform at the level that has been established, then I’ll move out of the way and let another fantastic artist come in and tell the story. That’s the beautiful part about “Hamilton”: It’s not going anywhere and the enthusiasm that [people] have showed for it has kept us going quite a while. Right now, I’m just taking everything day by day.
