Matthew wants Elton John on `Glee`

Los Angeles: `Glee` star Matthew Morrison wants music legend Elton John to play actress Jane Lynch`s love interest in the hit TV musical series.

The 32-year-old actor, who plays teacher Will Schuester in `Glee`, wants the `Rocket Man` to appear alongside Lynch`s character Sue Sylvester as her boyfriend because he is a "living legend", reported People magazine.

"We should find a spot for him to be on the show. That would be awesome. He`s a living legend. He just brings such a great energy and a great validity to everything he does.

"He should do something with Jane Lynch. I think he should maybe play her boyfriend or some kind of love interest for her. I think that would be fun," said Morrison.

John, who recently became a father for the first time with partner David Furnish, appears on Matthew`s upcoming debut album, and the actor-turned singer admitted it was a fantastic opportunity to work with him.

"I didn`t believe it was actually happening. I actually felt like I was a bad singer because we were singing a couple of his songs, and you`re so used to hearing that voice on these songs, and I`m like, `I don`t sound good on these songs.`

"It was supposed to be a secret that he was going to be on my album, but he`s kind of telling everyone, so I guess we can talk about it. He`s just the most loving man, and we had the best time. He was so giving and so supportive. We just had a ball," said Morrison.

If John, 63, accepts a role on `Glee` he would be the latest in a long line of guest stars including Britney Spears, Gwyneth Paltrow and Neil Patrick Harris to appear in the series.
