Matthew Morrison studied musical theater, vocal performance and dance at New York University’s renowned Tisch School of the Arts. His big Broadway break came when he was cast as heartthrob “Link Larkin” in the hit “Hairspray.”
Morrison was later nominated for a Tony Award for his role in “The Light in the Piazza,” and received a Drama Desk nomination for Outstanding Actor in a Musical for “10 Million Miles.” He starred in the Tony Award-winning revival of “South Pacific” at Lincoln Center Theater in New York. Recently, Morrison was honored with his first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for his work on GLEE.
No stranger to the small screen, Morrison has had guest-starring roles on “Numb3rs,” “CSI: Miami,” “As the World Turns,” “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” and “Ghost Whisperer.” His film credits include “Dan in Real Life,” “I Think I Love My Wife” and “Music and Lyrics.”
Morrison is currently working on his upcoming solo album. A California native, he divides his time between Los Angeles and New York.
