Matthew Morrison has been plenty busy for the last couple of weeks. For starters, he joined Kristin Chenoweth to co-host TLC’s Broadway at the White House last week—his eighth time performing for the first family.

“I love going to the White House,” he says. “The Obamas definitely know me now as I’ve sung for them a lot. It never gets old—it’s such an amazing time.”

And that’s just the beginning. Morrison is performing eight times a week as JM Barrie in Finding Neverland (he performed with fellow castmates during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade last week). He did a guest appearance on TV Land’s Younger this morning and tonight he’s one of many celebs participating in a special holiday retrospective celebrating the 50th anniversary of A Charlie Brown Christmas.

“The Charlie Brown show is so iconic to my childhood and everyone’s childhoods,” he says. “I also love that this classic animation can still be so viable and that people can get behind it. It’s something passed down throughout the generations—I know I will show it to my kids one of these days.”

And then there’s the matter of a certain classic holiday ditty he performed with Jane Lynch for Febreze. Entitled the “12 Stinks of Christmas,” the witty parody focuses on all those “stinky” moments that come with the holidays, from “10 casseroles lingering” to “11 guests 1 bathroom” and how to keep your house odor-free.

But it was the reference to “3 musty stockings” in the song that resonated most to Morrison.

“I still have my childhood stocking,” he says. “That thing sits in storage for 11 months of the year so my personal favorite is a fabric refresher that I pop out and give a little squirt to refresh it. It’s as good as new.”

Morrison was inspired to do the singalong with Lynch because, as he says, he’ll take any opportunity to work with her.

“She’s one of my dearest friends,” he says. “Any chance to do something together is amazing.”

In fact, Lynch is his closest castmate from Glee, which ran for six seasons, and the person who taught him the most about working in TV.

“She really taught me to trust that I was funny,” he says. “After all, on TV, you don’t have that audience reaction like you do on Broadway, which is what I did for 13 years before I joined the Glee cast.”

And, with Morrison’s Finding Neverland run coming to an end in January, it’s anyone’s guess what will come next. However, one thing is certain: Morrison says he plans to stay in New York City with his wife of one year, Renee Puente.

“I have a home in Los Angeles, but we’re going to stay here,” he says. “I love it here—you can get so much more done in a day.”

Still, there was one favorite thing he wasn’t able to fit into his to-do list during what has already been an extremely hectic start to the holiday season.

“I love to cook but all I made was stuffing this year,” he says. “I was a little bit busy to do more than that.”



Matthew Morrison and Jane Lynch have reunited to give fans the gift of song this holiday season.

Lynch tells PEOPLE of her former Glee costar: “We have our own lovely way of working together.”

So when the opportunity presented itself for the 55-year-old to select a singing partner for Febreze’s 12 Stinks of Christmas campaign, she didn’t think twice about re-teaming with the one-time Will Schuester to her Sue Sylvester – but just because the two are happy to be paired up again doesn’t mean they miss the good old days on Glee.

“We don’t,” the two say in unison with a laugh.

“It ended at the right time,” Lynch adds.

“It ran its course,” Morrison says. “I think it hit the highest of highs and you know some lows as well, just in terms of you know heartbreak and stuff like that, but it was just a great run and I think we got the best thing of it out of it in each other.”

While Morrison and Lynch aren’t crying tears over the end of Glee, they are happy to have been part of the groundbreaking show.

“We thank Ryan Murphy,” says Lynch, 55. “He’s always out there putting his thumb on what’s happening in the world and what problems kids are having, and he was the first one on them and he would stop production to have an episode on bullying because some kid was bullied notoriously in the news.”

And even though they’re busy with their own projects – Morrison, 37, is currently performing in the Broadway production of Finding Neverland and Lynch’s new CBS show Angel from Hell premieres on Jan. 7 – the two say they would love to be a part of Murphy’s American Horror Story and Scream Queens.

“I would love to do something crazy on one of those shows,” Lynch says. “I think it would be great.”

Morrison adds, “Yeah, me too! It would be fun.”

Matthew Morrison is pretty Glee-ful these days.
The 37-year-old has had a whirlwind year that has included wrapping up the final season of Glee and returning to Broadway in Finding Neverland, but enjoying his first year of marriage with Renee Puente has been the cherry on top.

“It’s been awesome – like the best year,” Morrison tells PEOPLE. “Our relationship has totally grown.”

Morrison, who is currently playing the role of J.M. Barrie in the Broadway production of Finding Neverland, reveals, “I was so scared coming to New York with Renee because she’s never lived in New York before, [but] she’s thriving here and it’s so amazing.”

He adds, “I feel more in love with her than I ever have been, and it’s going through life with my best friend, and I’m so absolutely excited about what’s next.”

So what exactly is next – perhaps the pitter patter of little Will Schuesters? While promoting his new Febreze holiday campaign, Morrison tells PEOPLE: “I want kids,” but he also jokes, “I’m sending them to boarding school until they’re older then I’ll take them back.”

And with the holidays nearing, the actor is already beginning to think about his future family: “I’m going to start a lot of traditions,” he says. “I’m an only child so my parents worked a lot when I was a kid so I really want to instill a lot of great traditions that I didn’t get to have.”
