Matthew Morrison Thinks About Life Post Glee

There may still be a season and a half left before Glee turns its mic off for the last time, but in the fickle world of entertainment where you’re only as good as your last job, already some of the stars from the hit dramedy are thinking of life after McKinley High. One of these savvy individuals is Matthew Morrison. The star who plays the glee club director, Will Schuester, recently admitted to having “mixed feelings” about the show’s upcoming end and has hinted that following the end of Glee, he might take a break from television work. Speaking to PA, Morrison explained his “mixed feelings” saying, “I think it's bittersweet but it's been an absolutely incredible ride and I'm going to miss my close friends, who have become my family." However, whenever one door closes, another one opens and he feels excited about the challenges that lie ahead for him and can’t wait to get into something new creatively. "I'm so looking forward to being challenged with something else. I have been playing Mr Schuester for what will be six years by then, so I'm looking forward to a new acting challenge. Something different, fresh and original." Fans of the curly-haired Broadway star may have to look back to New York City, or even further afield to London’s West End, in order to catch a glimpse of Morrison in his next project as he hinted that a return to the stage may be what’s in store next for him. "I want to take a break from television. It's a gruelling schedule and my heart has always been on stage. I realise that even more so now. Because of this long show, I haven't been able to get back on stage." And after six years of singing and dancing his way into our hearts every week, what kind of project is he looking for next? "I would probably do a serious, dramatic turn in a play. I've been talking to some people over there [in London] about doing a Tennessee Williams play so here's hoping.” Don’t start mourning the end just yet, Glee will still be gracing our screens till the middle of 2015 and there are a number of milestones to celebrate before then. None more so than the 600th musical performance and the show’s 100th episode both of which will air within weeks of the show’s return from its winter hiatus on Tuesday 25th February.
