Chewbacca To Make A Special Appearance On 'Glee'

December 3rd, 2011 3:32pm EST
Star Wars
"Star Wars" creator George Lucas has put a smile on the "Glee" cast's face by giving them permission to use his wookie creation Chewbacca in an upcoming Christmas episode.

Matthew Morrison, who directed the festive special, reveals not just anyone can play Han Solo's hairy friend - and TV producers needed Lucas' blessing to contact the movie mogul's chosen Chewie.

Morrison, who also plays teacher Will Schuester on the hit show, says, "He (Lucas) gave us Chewbacca. There's only one guy who can officially be Chewbacca and he lives in northern California; they flew him in... It was just grea...

'Glee' Recap: It's Mash-Up Week!

November 16th, 2011 9:50am EST
Glee 305
It seems like ‘Glee’ has just decided to pretend last week’s West Side Virgin Story never happened. Thank goodness! What a relief it is to jump right back into election season and age-inappropriate relationships! Puck leads the boys in a sexually charged performance of Van Halen’s “Hot for Teacher” within the first five minutes of the episode and it's clear that we can put 'The First Time' behind us and have some fun this week.

The good news gets even better when Ms. Corcoran , who has nice scenes with just about every single character in this show, speaks to Mr. Schue about keeping their...

'Glee' Recap: Virgin Scorecard

November 9th, 2011 12:53pm EST
Glee Rachel and Blaine
Like Sandra Dee, this week’s ‘Glee’ was lousy with virginity. Expectations were high after promos showed Rachel, Finn, Kurt and Blaine all getting their sexy on… but as it happened, ‘The First Time’ was kind of disappointing.

Unfortunately, West Side Story just doesn’t lend itself to this theme the way Madonna does. The season one tribute to the Queen of Pop covered similar territory and featured “Like a Virgin,” the most perfect song for the occasion. More importantly, the subject of de-flowering came up naturally and organically. Conversely, this week’s sudden sexual awakening isn’t moti...

'Glee' Recap: Puck Goes To Cougar Town

November 2nd, 2011 1:37pm EDT
GLEE: Quinn (Dianna Agron, L) and Puck (Mark Salling, R)
After yielding its timeslot to Major League Baseball for the past few weeks, “Glee” returned last night with an hour of leprechauns, cougars, and congressional candidates. Picking up where the series left off, this reasonably focused episode advanced several plotlines and introduced some new talent, in the form of ‘Glee Project’ winner, Damian McGinty.

The second of four new cast members that will, at some point, be transplanted from the Oxygen Channel’s competitive reality show to the Fox flagship, McGinty was front and center in his inaugural appearance as foreign exchange student, Rory...

Matthew Morrison Accepts Jonah Hill's Fight Challenge

September 27th, 2011 8:50pm EDT
Matthew Morrison
Matthew Morrison has stepped up to a challenge issued by Jonah Hill after the funnyman outed the Glee star as a party bully.

Hill appeared on late night TV last week and revealed Morrison was less than kind to him at a recent Fox network party, when the singer/actor chastised him for allegedly chatting during a presentation.

The SuperBad star was less than amused when he then attended another Hollywood party and overheard Morrison talking about him again - so he jokingly threatened to show Morrison exactly how he feels the next time they meet.

He said, "Yo, Matthew Morrison you better br...

Jonah Hill Upset With 'Glee' Star Matthew Morrison

September 22nd, 2011 8:35pm EDT
Jonah Hill
Glee star Matthew Morrison's good-guy image has been left in tatters by Jonah Hill - the Moneyball star has outed his Hollywood nemesis as a party bully.

Hill went on late night TV on Wednesday and revealed Morrison was less than kind to him at a recent Fox party, held to promote the network's new season.

During an appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Hill told the host the Glee star had picked on him at the event and left him feeling like an outcast.

He recalled, "This (publicity) woman is giving us these instructions... and no one is paying attention... and Zooey (Deschanel) sta...

Wishes Of A Television-aholic: 'Glee'

August 12th, 2011 9:58am EDT
glee cast
Believe it or not, this television-aholic actually scoffed at the early promos of what would come to be FOX’s mega-hit, “Glee.” The show looked silly and childish, and I thought it would be cancelled before the fourth episode. My initial assumptions were glaringly and wonderfully wrong. “Glee” is the television equivalent of cotton candy—brightly colored, lighthearted and achingly sweet. It makes me feel inspired and happy while most of my favorite shows make me want to curl up in the fetal position and ugly-cry.

Unfortunately, the last season was a little more sour than sweet thanks t...

Matthew Morrison Lands First Major Film Role

July 18th, 2011 8:13am EDT
Matthew Morrison
Matthew Morrison is set to appear in his first big film role since becoming a global star on Glee in new ensemble cast comedy What To Expect When You're Expecting.

The Broadway star got his big TV break on the hit musical series, and although he had previously enjoyed small film roles in Music and Lyrics and I Think I Love My Wife, the new project will be his first leading part.

Morrison will use his dancing training to play Evan, who teams up with co-star Cameron Diaz's character on a celebrity dance show, which leads to the pair expecting a baby.

The movie is a star-studded affair -...

'Glee' Cast To Be Replaced By New Actors Next Year

June 21st, 2011 11:24am EDT
Glee cast
The current cast of "Glee" including Lea Michele and Cory Monteith will be replaced in 2012.

The musical TV hit, set in a high school, has taken the world by storm since it first aired in 2009, and has made stars of castmembers including Michele, Monteith, Chris Colfer and Dianna Agron.

But to maintain the series' realism, creator Ryan Murphy has decided the current class should graduate in 2012 and leave the show for good.

In an interview on Ryan Seacrest's radio show, he says, "That is true. I don't think of it in terms of eliminating or replacing. Because I think the thing about this ...

Matthew Morrison Met President Obama While Dressed As A Nazi

June 8th, 2011 11:35am EDT
Matthew Morrison
Matthew Morrison was mortified when he first met President Barack Obama, because the Glee star was dressed as a Nazi stormtrooper at the event.

The actor/musician was invited to perform at the annual Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, DC, in December to pay tribute to Mel Brooks, and he sang a version of the director's well-known song, Springtime for Hitler.

Morrison dressed in full Nazi uniform - complete with Swastika - for the performance, and he was still wearing the controversial costume later in the evening when he met the U.S. President.

He tells British TV show Loose Women, ...

Season Finales: The Good And The Bad

May 31st, 2011 1:22pm EDT
The Good Wife
Another television season has come and gone with the usual blitzkrieg of shocking deaths, double-crosses, surprise pregnancies, and aggravating cliffhangers. It was a varied batch of season finales: some were amazing; others were lackluster; and a few finales left me counting the jumping sharks. I can’t watch every finale, but here’s a sampling of the awesomely good and the appallingly bad.

Let’s break it down.

The Good:

“The Good Wife” CBS

Julianna Margulies is fantastic as Alicia Florrick, the scorned wife trying to rebuild her life after her husband’s famed infidelities. The seco...

'Glee' Finale: Let's Hear It For 'New York'

May 25th, 2011 11:25am EDT
The glee club visits New York City for Regionals
We made it! ‘Glee’ is in NYC to compete at Nationals and conclude a chart-topping, show-stopping, star-studded, post-Super Bowl time-slot scoring second season.

True to form, our favorite fictional show choir is in a situation that is about as absurd as the Broadway-obsessed Rachel Berry thinking that CATS is still open for business. New Directions has come to Nationals without a song or a set list and now they need to write a couple of hits in as many overstuffed hotel rooms. Brittany, Artie, and Puck offer up the ditty, “My Cup,” and there are enough eyes rolling around the room for som...

Actor-turned-musician Steve Martin and his banjo band will help Americans ring in the Fourth of July by performing a concert at one of the country's most historic venues in Washington, D.C.

The Father of the Bride star and his group The Steep Canyon Rangers will perform Me & Paul Revere at the United States Capitol on Independence Day, according to the Associated Press.

Other singers scheduled for the A Capitol Fourth event include Glee star Matthew Morrison, American Idol winner Jordin Sparks, Little Richard, and You Raise Me Up hit-maker Josh Groban.

'Glee' Recap: Love, Loss, And Pure Imagination

May 18th, 2011 3:12pm EDT
Glee Funeral
This week was a big one! ‘Glee’ is gearing up for Nationals in New York, but before they take Manhattan, Finn calls it quits with Quinn, Rachel and Jesse share a kiss, and all the plans to win get interrupted by a sad and surprising loss. It’s the penultimate episode of the season and as Mr. Schue puts it, the culmination of everything the glee club has worked towards for the past two years. They’ve got to be awesome and this week, they kind of were.

Like Kirsten Dunst hiring a jazz hands-obsessed choreographer in the movie, “Bring It On,” Mr. Schue has made the decision to recruit 4-time...

Music Review: Matthew Morrison, 'Matthew Morrison'

May 12th, 2011 2:15pm EDT
Matthew Morrison
Matthew Morrison, "Matthew Morrison" (Mercury): Glee star Matthew Morrison's self-titled debut album is a guilty pleasure. It's not a CD that I'd admit I own, but it's one I do enjoy listening to.

Make no mistake about it, Morrison can sing; he spent some time as part of a boy band and has credits in several musicals to his name. I'm not a fan of the FOX series, but I loved his version of the Georgia Stitt classic "One Day More" on the 2007 compilation This Ordinary Thursday, so I figured his solo album might be a pleasant listen. It is: aside from the innuendos you're probably alrea...

'Glee' Recap: Bully Whips and Dancing Queens

May 11th, 2011 2:05pm EDT
GLEE: Blaine Darren Criss
Prom Elections are in full swing and New Directions is filling in for Air Supply as the house band. While most of the club is pretty psyched about the news, but our beloved Mercedes is hung up on the fact that she doesn’t have a date. She was really Jonesing for that Cinderella moment and damn it, new best friend to all, Rachel Berry, is going to give it to her. Sam is recruited and agrees that with a little financial aid, he’s up for the job of accompanying both divas to their big night.

Kurt asks Blaine to prom and with a bit of gentle open-minded prodding he agrees. The more important q...

'Glee' Recap: A Whole Lot Of Rumours

May 4th, 2011 11:41am EDT
Glee Kristin Chenoweth
This week is a tribute to the Fleetwood Mac album, Rumours and all the plot points are built around a track list that includes “Dreams” , “Don’t Stop,” and “Go Your Own Way,” among others.

Sue is back after a Gaga-mandated hiatus, and the first item on her agenda is to revitalize the school newspaper and get the gossip mill powered up and running. It’s actually one of her more sensible strategic efforts to take down the Glee Club. Using gossip columnists and tabloid coverage to take down a pop act?!? Look no further than the train-wreck eras of Britney, Whitney, and Lindsay, or Saved By...

Matthew Morrison Feels 'Nervous' About Album Release

May 2nd, 2011 9:53am EDT
Matthew Morrison
Glee star Matthew Morrison is feeling "nervous" about launching his music career because he fears his upcoming album will "expose" his weaknesses.

The actor signed a record deal last year, and his debut album - featuring a mixture of cover versions, duets, and self-penned tracks - is due for release later this month.

However, Morrison is wary of the reaction his music will receive, as writing songs is far more personal than performing for the cameras on Glee.

He tells British magazine Fabulous, "I'm nervous, yeah. I'm an actor first and foremost and I've always been able to hide behin...

GLEE Born This Way
In just a few weeks, the glee club is going to Nationals, prom royalty will be crowned, and Lady Gaga will release a new album. It’s a trifecta of amazing events that deserve to be brought together in a super sparkly, extra-long ‘Glee’ that’s all about self-acceptance.

Rather than hit us over the head with the theme of this episode, Finn clocks Rachel in the nose. In under a minute, rhinoplasty is on the table and New Directions is debating the merits of surgically enhanced vs unconditional self-acceptance. Miss Pillsbury is brought in to help Mr. Schue drive home the message that this we...

Matthew Morrison: 'I Was Scared Of Sex When I Was Growing Up'

April 25th, 2011 9:19am EDT
Matthew Morrison
"Glee" star Matthew Morrison spent his early years too scared to have sex after his midwife father told him horror stories of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and teenage pregnancies.

Morrison's dad often regaled the star with tales from the delivery room and made a point of showing his young son a detailed book about STDs to make sure he was careful when it came to sex.

The actor/singer admits his father's blunt talks "scared" him and he spent years worrying about being intimate with a girl.

He tells Britain's Star magazine, "My birds and the bees talk was epic. My dad is a midwife ...

Matthew Morrison Reveals How He Gets His Silky Hair

Matthew Morrison
"Glee" star Matthew Morrison has the makers of a skincare line to thank for his luscious locks.

The actor has revealed he uses body lotion Lubriderm to give his hair extra life - something that has helped make him a TV stud.

Morrison's perfect hair has even become a standing joke on "Glee" - his character's jealous school rival Sue Sylvester often pokes fun at his coiffure.

He says, "I was in college and I was using some products and stuff and I ran out and the only thing there was Lubriderm, so I did a couple of squirts, put it in and it was, like, the best my hair ever looked... I've n...

Matthew Morrison Forced To Flee His Rat-Infested Home

Glee star Matthew Morrison has been forced to move into a hotel after his home became infested with rats.

The actor recently went away for a few days and when he returned to his house, he found the place had been overrun by rodents. Morrison reveals the property was covered in feces, with rats in every room - and he became determined to catch the intruders.

He tells The Billy Bush Show, "I came home and World War III broke out in my house. There was rat poop all over my house when I got home. I go upstairs (and) there was a huge rat in my bed. And like, poop and faeces all over my bed.....

Matthew Morrison Perplexed By Alumnus Award

April 7th, 2011 4:19pm EDT
Matthew Morrison
Glee star Matthew Morrison was left baffled after receiving a distinguished alumnus award from his alma mater because he never actually graduated.

The actor, who studied at the prestigious New York University Tisch School of the Arts in the late 1990s, dropped out before receiving his degree to star in the Broadway play Footloose, but that decision doesn't seem to matter to administrators.

Morrison says, "It's funny to me... I just got this award, I went to NYU Tisch School of the Arts and I got this award for alumnus of the decade or alumnus of the year. It was the inaugural time, the ...

Matthew Morrison Joins Wango Tango Festival Line Up

Glee star Matthew Morrison has landed his first major solo gig - he'll be joining Ke$ha and Jennifer Lopez on the Wango Tango festival bill.

The actor is about to launch his debut solo album, which features collaborations with Elton John and Gwyneth Paltrow, and he'll kick off a 20-date U.S. tour with a festival spot at Staples Center in Los Angeles on May 14th.

"Glee" star Matthew Morrison isn't phased by false rumors he is gay.

He explained, "I sing and dance for a living and there is that connotation associated with me. I don't care. I know the truth. Does it make it difficult to get with women? No, it makes it easier."

Despite being linked to British model Kelly Brook and Cameron Diaz, Morrison insists he's still single - and lonely.

He said, "It's an awesome, glorious life but it's kind of isolating too and I feel lonely a lot."

Matthew Morrison: 'I Feel Lonely A Lot'

March 31st, 2011 8:10am EDT
Matthew Morrison
Actor Matthew Morrison feels "lonely a lot" since landing a starring role on Glee as he finds fame to be an "isolating" experience.

Morrison started his career performing on Broadway but it was his role as high school teacher Will Schuester on the hit musical TV show that has made him an international star.

However, despite being linked to British model Kelly Brook and Cameron Diaz, Morrison insists he's still single - and lonely.

He says, "I don't actually feel people know the real me, who I am as a person... Fans put me on a pedestal but I'm still on my own at night with my head on ...

'Glee' Recap: Originality Wins Regionals

March 16th, 2011 3:33pm EDT
GLEE: New Directions perform at Regionals in the Original Song
Gwyneth’s gone and ‘Glee’ has a brand new gimmick to trot out this week. The episode, aptly called ‘Original Song’ is designed to showcase just that – brand new never-before-heard tunes that are as irresistible as all the karaoke tracks that have come before.

The concept has been brewing for a while now. Rachel Berry will put her musical genius and emotional baggage on the line for the sake of the glee club and New Directions will perform a completely original ditty at Regionals. However, her current set list (My Headband and Only Child) leaves more than a little to be desired and Finn ta...

'Glee' Takes An 'Original Song' To Regionals

March 16th, 2011 10:41am EDT
GLEE: Kurt 'Original Song'
This week, New Directions decided to work with original songs, rather than the classics they’ve worked with in the past. Will it be the winning combination the club needs to stay in the running?

Coach “World Wide Sue” is all over this episode, thank heavens, and she’s great right out of the gate when she tells Mr. Schue she’s gotten My Chemical Romance to say no to the rights to the song he had his heart set on for the clubs ‘showstopper’ at Regionals. It seems she slept with the drummer. Although it later turns out that she forged the ‘cease and desist’ order, and actually slept with the...

Glee star Matthew Morrison has revealed his new song "Summer Rain" was inspired by a saucy moment on a rooftop.

The TV actor explains he once enjoyed an intimate experience in the open air with an ex and he wanted to capture the magic moment in a song on his debut album.

He explains, "I wanted to capture a moment in time that I had with an ex-girlfriend... It was such a beautiful moment and it was about being young and in New York. It's something that when I'm 65, I'll look back and be like, 'That was an awesome moment.'
