Matthew Morrison fired back at Jonah Hill, who last week said the Glee star made him the butt of a joke at a recent event both actors were attending.

Hill, who appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last week to promote Moneyball, told the host that he recently attended a "douchey Hollywood party" where he spotted Morrison chatting up Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford.

Hill decided to sneak up behind them, when he heard Morrison say something to the effect of "something, something, something, Jonah Hill, and then they both start laughing. ... I'm the punchline in this guy's joke? He doesn't even know I'm at this party, it's 'blah, blah, blah, Jonah Hill' and then crack-up?"

Hill went on to issue a warning to Morrison.

"Yo, Matthew Morrison, you better bring your s--- next time I see you, dude" he said, adding, "I'd like to see him sing his way out of this one."

On Monday's Late Night, Morrison responded via a video he sent in to the NBC show.

The clip stars out with Morrison telling a joke about Hill.

"Oh hey, Jimmy, what's up?" he goes on. "I heard that Jonah said I should bring my s--- next time. Well, guess what? This is next time. You think I can't sing my way out of this? Well guess what, Jonah? I can sing my way out of it, and I can dance my way out of it."

He went on to ask Hill for a showdown.

"Pick a date, and I will meet you on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and we will settle this like men," he said. "But be afraid. Be very afraid. Because nobody messes with someone from musical theater."
