More than a few times in his life, Matthew Morrison has had gay friends choose him as the first person to come out to. “I’m open, a really good listener, a good friend,” he reasons. “I think I’m a safe person to start with, and hopefully that journey just goes on and on for them. I’m really flattered I could be that person for several people.”The actor, who stars as Will Schuester on Glee, adds, “I’m very happy to be a part of a world where two men and two women can actually get married in some places now. I’m excited to see what the future brings.”Glee hasn’t been afraid to tackle LGBT issues over the years and Morrison is keenly aware of the impact it’s had on its young audience. “I think it did so much good in our world,” he says. “It brought a lot of social issues to light

— being gay in high school, bullying — that we’re faced with. I’m really proud of the way we’ve handled those situations.”

Next Thursday, July 10, Morrison will bring years of Broadway and screen experience to a performance with the National Symphony Orchestra at Wolf Trap. “I’m the classic song and dance man,” he says of his planned repertoire. “A lot of the old standards reinterpreted in my own way, and timeless classics I just love to sing.” Tony Award-winner Laura Benanti, who recently sang with the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington, will appear alongside Morrison as a featured guest. “It gives me the opportunity to do something different,” he enthused. “We’ll sing a couple duets, and then she’ll do some of her stuff.”

He’s also looking forward to working with NSO Pops conductor Steven Reineke again. “He’s a trumpet player, so he especially gets the kind of music I’m trying to do, because my stuff — I guess you would say it swings a little bit more.”

With Glee entering its final season, Emmy- and Tony-nominated Morrison — who starred on Broadway in the original casts of Hairspray and The Light in the Piazza – is looking forward to what the future will bring.

“I’m so lucky to live this life and to be an entertainer,” he says. “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do — and to do it at the kind of level I’m doing it, is something that I wish everyone could experience… I try to make every performance genuine and true. I’m very happy with my life, my family, my soon to be wife. It’s all good in Morrison’s neighborhood.” – Randy Shulman

Space Station 76 – a new movie
POSTED ON Mar 12, 2014 BY Valentina INUncategorized

Matthew has a cameo in a new independent movie, Space Station 76, that premiered on March 8 at SXSW in Austin, TX. Here’s the synopsis:

The story takes place on the Omega 76, a refueling station hovering out in space. Patrick Wilson is at the helm as the ship’s disgruntled captain, Glenn. Things haven’t been the same since his assistant captain, Daniel (Matthew Morrison), left and even though his replacement, Jessica (Liv Tyler), is the best of the best, Glenn has zero patience for her concerns regarding the threat of asteroid pockets. Meanwhile, Matt Bomer’s Ted is hard at work as the ship’s mechanic while his wife, Misty (Marisa Coughlan), prances around with their daughter, Sunshine (Kylie Rogers), until she feels like knocking on Steve’s (Jerry O’Connell) door, leaving Sunshine to entertain herself all on her own.

You’ll be able to catch Bomer’s robotic hand in action, meet Omega 76’s in-house psychiatrist, Doc Bot, spend some time with Sunshine’s doomed pets and more soon enough because Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions just scored the international rights to the film.
