Matthew Morrison Direct. Matthew Morrison, who plays on Glee, has plans to direct several episodes of the hit show next season. Known to Gleeks as high school heartthrob teacher Mr. Schuester, Morrison said he’ll take on a bigger role “definitely in the third season” of Glee.
He previously told THR that fulfilling his role as an actor on ‘Glee’ while recording his debut album was “the hardest I’m ever going to work in terms of trying to be noticed and seen, so I want to push it until I’m 40. Then, I’d love to get behind the camera, produce films and be more involved in the storytelling process.” It looks like Morrison is way ahead of schedule.
Morrison recently talked about his fear of putting himself out there as a solo artist. Apparently he has gotten over his stage fright and is achieving his dreams — with style. Morrison drops his debut solo album this May following the release of his new single, ‘Summer Rain.’
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 Glee (2009–present). He has also received a Satellite Award for this role. In addition on January 14, 2010, it was announced that Morrison signed a solo record deal with Mercury Records.
