Matthew James Morrison (born October 30, 1978) is an American 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.

Matthew Morrison 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 campus. While in high school, he did a musical with Jodie Sweetin.

At age 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 "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."
