Speaking of his rodent nightmare, the 'Glee' actor recalls, 'I came home and World War III broke out in my house. There was rat poop all over my house when I got home.'
Matthew Morrison has been forced to move out of his home because of rat invasion. The Will Schuester of "Glee" shared the story of his rodent nightmare to Billy Bush during an interview for "The Billy Bush Show" in Los Angeles on Thursday, April 14.
"I came home and World War III broke out in my house," the 32-year-old actor began recalling. "There was rat poop all over my house when I got home. I go upstairs [and] there was a huge rat in my bed. And like, poop and feces all over my bed."
Though he had suspected the problem before leaving the house and had "this pest guy" to deal with it, Matt got home only to learn that the rodent refused to go away. Nonetheless, he confessed he tried to get rid of the problems by himself. "I tried to catch the rat and he darted away," he said. "And I kind of cornered him in this thing... I thought he was dead on my bed."
"So I had a big like, Trader Joes bag and I put a bunch of plastic bags on my hand - I went to grab him and he just darted off," continued the actor, who has starred in multiple Broadway productions. "He ran downstairs and he was on the windowsill, kind of just eyeing me. We were playing cat and mouse - or Matt and rat, I guess."
Though he finally caught the rat with a sticky trap, Matt learned there were more of them. "I got him, ran downstairs in my underwear, and threw him in this far away trash can. Came back, tried to sleep and I just couldn't. A half hour later, I hear something else. On my nightstand!"
The "Summer Rain" singer added, "I run over and turn the light on, and this big guy is on my nightstand and he jumps on my bed. They just love my bed! And he's looking at me like, 'What are you doing on my bed?' He's looking at me like I'm the a**hole."
Disgusted by the nightstand rat, Matt finally decided to leave his home, and checked into a hotel at 1:30 in the morning. About the rodent-infested house, he said, "This is my house that I own. Now I want to put it back on the market!"
