Matthew Morrison Planning to Direct 'Glee' Episode in Season 3

Glee actor Matthew Morrison is a Broadway star, a TV actor and a songwriter, but soon he will add another role to his resume: director.

On the PaleyFest carpet Wednesday night, Morrison told THR that he hopes to take on the director’s role on Glee and said he will “definitely [do it] in the third season.”

Morrison previously told THR that acting on Glee while recording and preparing to promote his album “is the hardest I’m ever going to work in terms of trying to be noticed and seen, so I want to push it until I’m 40. Then, I’d love to get behind the camera, produce films and be more involved in the storytelling process.”

Seven and a half years shy of 40, it sounds like Morrison will get behind the camera sooner than he had hoped.

Morrison’s debut album will hit the shelves in May, and his first single, “Summer Rain,” was released March 8.

Fox’s Glee returns from hiatus on April 13 at 8 p.m.
