'Glee' star Matthew Morrison: You can go home again [Video] [Updated]

August 10, 2010 | 12:29 pm

While the Teen Choice Awards are great stomping grounds for the young stars of "Glee," there's a surefire place for fandemonium where Matthew Morrison is concerned -- his high school alma mater.

Web network Cambio shadowed the actor recently as he swung through his old stomping grounds, stopping at the Orange County High School of the Arts in Santa Ana to chat with the teacher he says inspired his popular character Will Schuester.

[For the record, 1:51 p.m.: An earlier version of this post placed OCHSA in Los Alamitos, where it was when Morrison attended. The school operated out of Los Alamitos High School until April 2000, when it was relaunched as a charter school in Santa Ana.]

Click on the image above to watch as Morrison reflects on the importance of the performing arts program he went through, talks with young talent and even leaves a parting gift -- a donation to the school for $15,000.
