'Glee' actor Matthew Morrison has joked he deserves a pay rise because so much attention is paid to his hair, it is like it is another character
Matthew Morrison believes he should be paid more because his hair is "another character" in 'Glee'.
The 31-year-old actor - who plays teacher Mr. Schuester in the musical TV series - explained he gets so much attention for his hairstyle in the show that he thinks he should be given a pay rise by Fox bosses.
He said: "How do I feel about the jokes about my hair? It doesn't bother me, but I do feel I should be paid more money because my hair is another character!
"As people once asked for a Rachel from 'Friends' haircut, perhaps they'll soon be asking for a 'Schuester!'"
The hunky actor admitted he has had to add a lot of hats to his wardrobe in order to avoid being recognised by the show's enthusiastic fans.
Matthew added: "My anonymity has gone. I can't walk five feet without being stopped for a picture. But you have to embrace it. You work this hard and hope for something like this to come along, so you can't push it away when it happens.
"But I am buying a lot more hats now! I'm also walking around a lot in clear glasses - sunglasses make it look like you're trying too hard!"
