Money Q&A with 'Glee's' Matthew Morrison

As Mr. Schuester on the Fox-TV hit "Glee," Matthew Morrison gets to help his students search for meaning in a world that often casts them aside while also seeking meaning in his own confusing life. The reality is that Morrison, 32, has been on a straight and solid track for some time. Pre-"Glee," he was already a veteran of six Broadway shows, including "Hairspray," "South Pacific" and "The Light in the Piazza," the latter of which earned him a Tony Award nomination for Best Featured Actor in a Musical."Now that "Glee" has made him immediately recognizable to teens and other "Gleeks" across the country, Morrison has embarked on the next phase of his career -- singing. His first album, called simply "Matthew Morrison," came out May 10, and features guest stars Elton John, Gwyneth Paltrow and Sting. Morrison will spend mid-June through late July touring the country.

Once you became successful, what were some of the things you started to splurge on?

Honestly, I still don't (splurge). I still live my life like a struggling actor -- I feel like I'm going to be out of work at any second. I still have that mentality. The only thing I splurge on now is real estate. I own a home in New York and a home here in Los Angeles. Those are the two big splurges for me. That's where I'll stop.

In New York, real estate is a big splurge.

Oh, yeah. That was a big deal for me. I bought six years ago, when I was 27. I bought a really small apartment in Hell's Kitchen. I love it. I was just there this whole week. "Glee" people had to stay at a hotel when we were filming there, and I got to go home. It was nice.
