Matthew Morrison flees rat-infested home

"Glee's" Matthew Morrison is singing the blues after he was forced to leave his rat-infested California home.

After the 32-year-old actor recently discovered his home was covered in rat feces, he was determined to catch the critters who were responsible for the dirty deed.

"I came home and World War III broke out in my house. There was rat poop all over my house when I got home," Morrison told "The Billy Bush Show." "I go upstairs and there was a huge rat in my bed. And like, poop and feces all over my bed."

With a 6:00 a.m. call time for "Glee" looming, "it was just the worst night ever," Morrison recalled.

"I tried to catch the rat and he darted away. And I kind of cornered him in this thing. I thought he was dead on my bed," the actor explained. "So I put a bunch of plastic bags on my hand, and I went to grab him and he just darted off. He was on the windowsill, kind of just eyeing me. We were playing cat and mouse -- or Matt and rat, I guess."

Morrison then caught the critter, "ran downstairs in my underwear and threw him in this far away trash can."
