Get Your First Look at Matthew Morrison as The Grinch... Plus See All the Reactions

Matthew Morrison will be playing the title character in NBC’s upcoming stage production of Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch Musical! and the first look was just revealed.

The 42-year-old actor, best known for playing Will Schuester on Glee, is completely unrecognizable in the green face makeup for the role.

The internet doesn’t seem to be loving the look and there are so many reactions on Twitter that you’ve gotta see. A lot of comparisons are being made to Glee character Sue Sylvester!

The event will be a two-hour production of the stage show, filmed at the Troubadour Theatre in London. Denis O’Hare will be playing old Max while Booboo Stewart is set to play young Max.

Dr. Seuss’ beloved book tells the story of a reclusive Grinch who plotted from his cave atop snowy Mt. Crumpit to steal Christmas from the Whos in Who-ville. Then on Christmas Eve, disguised as Santa Claus and enlisting his loyal dog Max as a reindeer, the Grinch traveled to Who-ville to scoop up the Whos’ gifts and decorations. Much to his surprise on Christmas morning, the Whos were unfazed and celebrated the holiday with a heartwarming display of joy and love.
