Morrison, 31, performed on Broadway for ten years before nabbing the part of Will Schuester on the sing-song series -- and told "Extra" earlier this year the part was made for him.

"If I could have written a part for myself, this would have been it," he said.

The actor is up for a Golden Globe Award as Best Actor for his role on the show.
