'Glee' Star Matthew Morrison Talks Season 4 and Wemma's Future: 'I Want a Marriage!' (EXCLUSIVE)
Glee fans were alarmed when Emma (Jayma Mays) was mysteriously missing from the Season 4 cast photo released last week. No need to worry, Matthew Morrison said, telling Celebuzz in an exclusive interview that things between Will and Emma will be better than ever this season.
"They're still together," Morrison told Celebuzz at the U.S. Open's annual Arthur Ashe Kids Day on Saturday in Queens, N.Y. "I don't know what the writers have in store for them, but I can say that as of right now, everything is great between them. They're happy and still teaching at McKinley."
Morrison also dished on what fans can expect from the hit Fox show's fourth season.
When asked what he wants for Will this season, the actor enthusiastically replied, "I want a marriage! I want to get married."
But will Will and Emma's marriage be as elaborate as his proposal? "Can you imagine walking down aisle as we're both walking on water? No, I think chlorine is too much for Emma. She has to protect her hair."
Aside from planning a wedding, this season, Mr. Schue will focus on adding new talent to New Directions, now that several of his standout performers have graduated.
Glee Project Season 1 runner-up Alex Newell will reprise his guest-starring role as Wade Adams, the standout member of rival choir Vocal Adrenaline in Season 3. This season, Wade will transfer to McKinley. Other new faces viewers can expect to see in the McKinely High talent pool include Jake Puckerman (Jacob Artist), Marley (Melissa Benoist) and Kitty (Becca Tobin). Plus, Glee Project Season 2 winner Blake Jenner will have a seven-episode arc, portraying a new character named Ryder.
Besides Season 4's abundance of new talent, Morrison says the show's brand new format -- splitting screen time between New York and Lima, Ohio -- is not only refreshing from a creative standpoint, but it's also great for the actor's personal life.
"For the first time since doing the show, I feel like I have a life outside of the show," he said. "Because of the New York element this season, our shooting schedule has condensed a little bit, so it's been great. It's been a fun season, and I think everyone is really enjoying being there this season."
Glee Season 4 kicks off Thurs., Sept. 13 at 9 PM on Fox.
