Matthew Morrison

Chances are, you are one of the many people worldwide addicted to the hit show Glee. If this is the case, you probably love adorable Will Schuester, and want to know more about Matthew Morrison, who plays Will on the show. Right? Well we have the inside scoop on how Morrison got his start, and some other roles he has held before becoming a resident of McKinley High.

Acting was an easy decision for Morrison, even at a young age. Though in high school he was an avid soccer player, student body president and prom king, he knew acting was his calling. He even went to New York University for acting, but dropped out after only two years. For good reason, however. Gaining a part in the cast of Footloose, Morrison began his Broadway career. He went on to star in Rocky Horror Picture Show and Hairspray, playing the original part of Link Larkin. He also earned a Tony nomination for his performance in The Light in the Piazza.

During this time, Morrison had a quick stint in the boy band LMNT, but left even before their first CD was released, since explaining that he hated the experience. He then moved on to television, making guest appearances in shows such as CSI: Miami, Sex and the City, Numb3rs, Guiding Light and Law and Order: Criminal Intent. This all, obviously, before his casting on Glee, a role for which he has won a Satellite award and SAG award.

Look for more of Morrison on Series 2 of Glee (release TBC) as well as the release of his new album in the autumn…
