Matthew Morrison wants to be like "Michael Bublé mixed with Gene Kelly".

The Glee star has explained what fans can expect from his all-singing all-dancing tour around America's "symphony circuit" theatres.

The actor plays teacher Will Schuester in the popular singing TV drama and is looking forward to filling out the 2,000 seat theatres he is visiting.

"I'm trying to do something different by incorporating dance," Matthew explained to fashion website Mr Porter. "I'll sing for a bit then there'll be an instrumental break and I'll just bust out a whole dance. I want to be like Michael Bublé mixed with Gene Kelly."

As well as his stage show, Matthew has a new album out in February next year. This will be his second release, which is part of his plan to make a name for himself in the music industry.

"[The workload I've chosen has] forced my hand, [into carving out a career as a recording artist]," Matthew explained.

Glee is currently in its fourth series and while Matthew believes he is one of the most convincing characters in the show, he resents that the filming schedule stops him pursuing his other TV ambitions.

"We shoot more than ten months of the year, so I don't have time to do a proper show," Matthew explained.

"[I'm more] instinctual [than your average cast member]. I lead with my d**k. Sometimes you see a guy up there [in Glee] and you think, 'I don't believe it, I don't think that guy wants to have sex with that woman.'"
