Matthew Morrison knew he wanted to be an entertainer after participating in a theatre camp as a child. He attended NYU's TISCH School of the arts in the CAP21 program before joining the cast of Footloose. He was a member of the boy band LMNT, briefly, before he redevoted himself to Broadway in Rocky Horror. Hairspray has been his big break.
