Matthew Morrison Birthday

Happy Birthday Matthew Morrison!

The actor/singer turns 33 Sunday and we though we'd take a little trip down memory lane with the man who brings Will Schuster to life.

In case you forgot, Morrison -- who graces the small screen on "Glee," got his start on Broadway. His big break? Landing the role of Link Larkin in John Waters' stage production of "Hairspray" in 2002.

Check out some photos below of Morrison from back in his Broadways days -- complete with some curly locks -- all the way to hitting the road with his "Glee" castmates.
