Star Student

Matthew Morrison grew up in Orange County, California. He attended a special high school that catered to students with special talents in performing and visual arts.

On Broadway

He began his climb to fame with roles on Broadway in the musicals Footloose (based on the movie) and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. In 2002 he landed a key role in Hairspray, a musical that ran for several years. After this he made guest appearances in TV shows and movies like Dan in Real Life with Steve Carell before making it big on Glee.

Head Gleek

In 2009 Matthew landed the sought after role of Mr. Schuester on Glee. The series follows a group of high school students who band together to form a singing group (also called a glee club).
