It Took Matthew Morrison Over Three Hours To Put On The Grinch Costume For 'Dr. Seuss' The Grinch Musical'

Matthew Morrison is starring as The Grinch in Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch Musical tonight on NBC and in a new interview, opened up about wearing the iconic green costume for the event.

The former Glee star referenced Jim Carrey, who starred as the character in full length movie and once compared putting on the costume and makeup to torture.

In fact, Jim even opened up about going through torture training because of the costume.

“I can’t imagine being Jim Carrey and doing an actual movie of this, having to day in and day out for months on end put that face on,” Matthew shared with EW. “I had to put the whole outfit on maybe five times. But it took three and a half hours to put on and an hour to take off.”

Matthew added that his costume was “a little inhibiting, if I’m honest, just because you don’t want to move your face too much because the prosthetic might fall off.”

“I’m singing and dancing in this, and I’m a sweater and that messes with a lot of makeup things as well,” he continued. “…You’re the Grinch, you’re green. I now have so much respect for any woman who has ever played Elphaba [in Wicked]. Having to go through that every night, oh my gosh!”

Matthew also revealed that wearing the costume was challenging because of the weight attached to it.

“We had some brilliant costume designers, and they did the best job that they possibly could to make it as light as it was,” he says. “But it was still pretty heavy. If I was ever to lose weight on a project, this was the one. I took that thing off every day, and besides the smell of it, it was just like, covered with sweat.”

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 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.
