Matthew Morrison Talks Breakdancing on 'Regis and Kelly' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Mar 14th 2011 12:30PM
When asked if he primarily considers himself a singer or actor, Matthew Morrison of 'Glee' interestingly answers neither. Morrison said on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated) that he thinks of himself as a dancer first.

Morrison said he got his start as a breakdancer at young age. But, his days of pulling off crazy acrobatics on a patch of cardboard are largely behind him, because he has a tough time handling physically-demanding moves.

'The Vampire Diaries'The Parents Television Council is stirring up controversy again -- this time it's targeting the sexualization of teen girls on TV.

According to a Los Angeles Times report, "The results from this report show Tinseltown's eagerness to not only objectify and fetishize young girls, but to sexualize them in such a way that real teens are led to believe their sole value comes from their sexuality," PTC President Tim Winter said in a statement.

Among the shows the PTC examined are 'Two and a Half Men,' 'The Vampire Diaries,' 'Glee' and 'The Big Bang Theory.'

Emmy Picks: Best Lead Actor in a Comedy

by Joel Keller, posted Aug 25th 2010 12:05PM

With the Emmy awards just days away, I'm continuing to pick who I think should and who I think will win the major awards.

Yesterday, I discussed the Best Lead Actress in a Comedy category. Today we look at some funny guys in the Best Lead Actor in a Comedy category.

Nominees:
Alec Baldwin, '30 Rock'
Steve Carell, 'The Office'
Larry David, 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'
Matthew Morrison, 'Glee'
Jim Parsons, 'The Big Bang Theory'
Tony Shalhoub, 'Monk'

Who will win:
There are three two previous winners in this category (four, if you count David's Comedy Series win for 'Seinfeld,') so there are lots of places the Academy can go if they want to play it safe. I can see them giving it to Alec Baldwin again, even though '30 Rock' didn't have the strongest season, though Shalhoub might get the votes as a tribute to the end of 'Monk''s long run. But the Academy loves the fact that they can give a comedy award to a guy who is still thought of in some circles as a dramatic actor. So Baldwin will take it.

Matthew Morrison Has Sexy Abs, Michelle Obama Crush (VIDEO)

Matthew Morrison Has Sexy Abs, Michelle Obama CrushWhen Matthew J. Morrison visited 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), Jay Leno was kind enough to show off a picture of the 'Glee' actor that appeared in 'Vogue.'

Seeing his six-pack on full display, fellow guest Katherine Heigl said, "Who knew that's what's under there, huh? Wow!" "Sixteen hours of lipo," joked Morrison.

Then Leno followed that up with another revelation: "I read in 'In Style' magazine ... that you have a crush on Michelle Obama." Honestly, the last part of that sentence is less surprising (and more believable) than the first: Jay Leno reads 'In Style'?

'Glee' Returns! Catch Up With Our 'Glee'-cap and Midseason Preview

Glee

Was it Sectionals or Regionals? Is Quinn still pregnant? What's up with Will and Emma? It's been a small eternity since the last new episode of 'Glee,' and let's face it: those four long months could turn even the most die-hard Gleek's memories of the Fox hit musical into convenience store slush.

So for all those whose show choir recollections have turned a little hazy over this winter hiatus, we've provided a recap (or 'Glee'-cap, if you will) of where the show left off in its 'Sectionals' mid-season finale last December -- as well as a little taste of what's to come in the episodes ahead -- just in time for the series' return tonight at 9:28PM ET.

Before They Were Stars: The Cast of 'Glee'

by Audrey Fine, posted Apr 13th 2010 6:00AM
Jane LynchThese days the cast of 'Glee' is everywhere; peering at us from magazine covers, rolling eggs on the White House lawn and chatting with Oprah.

They've become such media darlings that it's hard to believe we'd never even heard of most of these actors till the show debuted last spring and made them overnight stars. In fact, for some, like Amber Riley [Mercedes], Chris Colfer [Kurt] and Mark Salling [Puck], 'Glee' is one of their first professional gigs! Crazy what a difference a year can make.

So, just what was this talented bunch up to pre-'Glee?'

'Glee' Season One, Part Two - An Early Look

The cast of 'Glee;' they come back to FOX April 12
Hey, folks! Did you hear? 'Glee' is coming back on Tuesday! Wow, Fox really kept that comeback under wraps, didn't they? Gone for four months, they seem to be bringing the show back without a lot of fanfare.

Too bad sarcasm doesn't translate very well in electronic print, but, believe me, I was rolling my eyes the whole time I wrote the last paragraph. Between the interviews, the appearance on 'Oprah,' the performance at the White House, the Rolling Stone cover, the weird 9:28PM ET time slot after 'American Idol,' and pretty much everything else going on, you couldn't avoid the comeback of 'Glee' if you tried.

But is the show coming back in good shape? Fox sent out the next three episodes out for review, and the answer is: yes and no. It really depends on what your favorite part of the show is.
