Matthew James Morrison (born October 30, 1978) is an American musical theater and television actor and singer. He is best known for starring in multiple Broadway and Off-Broadway productions, including his portrayal of Link Larkin in Hairspray on Broadway, and most notably for his Golden Globe- and Emmy-nominated role as Will Schuester on the Fox television show Glee (2009–present). He has also received a Satellite Award for this role.
Morrison was born at Fort Ord, California, a U.S. Army base on Monterey Bay. The inspiration for his career as an actor came from attending theater camp as a child and acting in school plays and musicals. He was also a football(soccer) player and was elected prom king and president of his high school. He was educated at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, Collaborative Arts Project 21 (CAP21) and the Orange County High School of the Arts, while at the Los Alamitos High School campusWhile in high school, he did a musical with Jodie Sweetin.[At the early age of 19, he landed a role in a chorus line of the Broadway adaption of Footloose. By sophomore year at college he was a regular performer on Broadway. He states in Details (magazine) "There were all these beautiful, beautiful dancers. As a straight guy I had some room. There were the shared interests in singing and dancing, and I always find dancing with someone very evocative and sexual. I definitely hooked up with a lot of girls when I was a young guy on Broadway. It was exciting. Very joyous and free." Morrison joined a Bible-study group in college. He became sexually active in his 20s.
Morrison was engaged to actress Chrishell Stause. However, Stause called off their engagement after suspecting the actor was cheating on her. The pair both dismissed claims of a romance, and while Stause insists it was a "false rumor," she admits Morrison did little to calm her fears of his infidelity - and she dumped him in September, 2007, just months before they were due to exchange vows.
