Glee Stars' Side Projects
As the coach of William McKinley High School's New Directions, the singing group featured on Fox's hit series Glee, Will Schuster has taken a back seat to his students. And as his character is currently grappling with his own quest for fame, the actor who plays him, Matthew Morrison, is entering the spotlight with his own self-titled album this week. "This is the hardest I'm ever going to work in terms of trying to be noticed and seen," 31-year-old Morrison told The Hollywood Reporter. "I've worked so hard on it, I wanted to give it its due." It's also been reported that the actor will be singing one of his own songs on the upcoming season finale of Glee on May 24 in an attempt to promote Matthew Morrison. "I want to be like the next Gene Kelly," he told Us Weekly of his cross-over efforts. "I want to kind of do it all."
