Glee's Will wants to stay single

Glee's Matthew Morrison wants his character Will Shuester to stay single - so he can kiss more women.

The star of the hit musical TV show saw good-hearted music teacher Will split from his controlling wife Teri in the first series and is now filming the next season, but wants Will to remain a bachelor.

Matthew said: "I'd like Will to stay single - it's so interesting to play a newly-single person.

"He's been married for 15 years, and now he has to figure who he is without someone else. It's fun to play with that. Also, it means I get to kiss a lot of women!"

The 31-year-old actor is delighted Glee has become such a worldwide phenomenon, and believes it has more to offer than raunchy vampire shows like True Blood and The Vampire Diaries.

He said: "It's got comedy, drama and music - it has something for everyone. It's also clearly something we need. There are so many procedural dramas about doctors and lawyers out there and so many vampire shows. This offers something completely different."

Matthew added: ""Everyone is now talking about 'the Glee generation', and that's brilliant. I went to a performing arts high school and it ran a great programme. Since Glee has been on, enrolment at that high school has doubled. That speaks to what's happened on this show.

"Above all, it reminds us that the arts really matter. For someone like me who's grown up with song and dance, it's astonishing to be leading that change for a new generation. I find it so hopeful and inspiring."

:: Glee Season 1: Road to Regionals is available on DVD, and Glee: The Complete First Season, is available on Blu-ray and DVD from September 13
