‘Glee’ Fans Will Mourn the Death of Finn Hudson in Fall of 2013

Finn hudson GleeGlee, [American Horror Story, Nip/Tuck and The New Normal] creator Ryan Murphy recently told E! News what his last conversation with Cory Monteith, who played Finn Hudson on the popular musical show and died of a heroin overdose last week, related to.

Unsurprisingly, it had to do with drugs, his job and a general unified concern for his life. Murphy was well aware of Monteith’s problem both past and present and discussed his reliance on narcotics.

“He wanted to continue working and we said, ‘That’s not an option. No. The TV show doesn’t matter, your life matters,'” Murphy said of the 31-year-old he described as “an older son.”

“His last words to me were, “I want to get better,” the Glee showrunner continued. “I always felt and continue to feel even in his death that he did, that he really wanted to fight it and he was humiliated and shamed.”

Cory Monteith Died of a Heroin and Alcohol-Related Drug Overdose

Cory Monteith drumsA coroner in British Columbia confirmed earlier this week that 31-year-old Glee star Cory Monteith’s death was caused by a lethal dose of heroin mixed with alcohol on Saturday.

“It should be noted that at this point there is no evidence to suggest Mr. Monteith’s death was anything other than a most-tragic accident,” Canadian authorities said in a press conference.

The police explained that “there were indications in the room that this was a drug overdose,” and while they didn’t specify what those indications were, it’s probably safe to assume that, since it was heroin, there were either needles or some kind of foil and/or pipe discovered in his hotel room.

His co-star Jane Lynch said the following kind words about Monteith while visiting The Tonight Show:

“Cory’s one of the biggest hearts, was a real bright light. He was one of those guys that … he knew he was breathing rarified air. The gifts that this wonderful show gave us … He was always aware that it was a gift and he was quite generous. He was one of those adventurous types of people.”  Continue reading “Cory Monteith Died of a Heroin and Alcohol-Related Drug Overdose”

‘Glee’ Star Cory Monteith Found Dead

Cory Monteith black and whiteAuthorities in Canada have confirmed that Glee star Cory Monteith died today in his hotel room.

Employees at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver discovered his body on Saturday night after he didn’t check out at the expected time.

Staff found him alone after reportedly going out with friends, and police have issued a statement that foul play is not suspected.

Monteith, age 31, was the longtime boyfriend of his Glee co-star Lea Michele. Besides his famous role as smooth-voiced Finn Hudson, he appeared in the MTV series Kaya and the 2011 movie Monte Carlo with Selena Gomez.

Many speculate that the cause of death was a drug overdose due to his recent stint in rehab. In one notable interview, the actor admitted that he did “anything and everything, as much as possible.”

Lea Michele Not Planning on Dumping Cory Monteith While He’s in Rehab

Lea Michele Cory Monteith dinnerKind and generous soul Lea Michele has decided not to kick boyfriend Cory Monteith to the curb after he checked himself into rehab for substance abuse.

“I love and support Cory and will stand by him through this,” she says, as if she were the wife of a politician who cheated on her with an underage Thai boy. “I am grateful and proud he made this decision.”

Monteith first entered rehab when he was 19 and has described himself as a heavy drinker since age 13 who did “every and any drug” he could get his hands on.

You know those awful people who hate Anne Hathaway for no reason besides that she’s too “actressy?” I may feel that way about Lea Michele, and I don’t want to.  Continue reading “Lea Michele Not Planning on Dumping Cory Monteith While He’s in Rehab”

Three Of The “Kids” On Glee Are 30 Years Old

In a list of actors 25 and older who have played high schoolers not one but three members of the Glee cast were offenders. Maybe it is good that most of them are graduating. Gotta make room for new forehead wrinkles.

Cory Monteith (Finn) turned 30 on May 11 while co-stars Harry Shum Jr. (Mike Chang) did the same on April 28. Mark Salling (Puck) turns 30 in August. So I cheated a bit on the headline, in the words of Fred Armisen as Joy Behar – SO WHAT.  Continue reading “Three Of The “Kids” On Glee Are 30 Years Old”

‘Glee’ Episode ‘The First Time’ Causes Teen Sex Panic

The Tuesday, November 9th, episode of Glee on Fox focused on the deflowering of two couples, straight pairing Rachel (Lea Michele) and Finn (Cory Monteith) and the not-so-ambiguously gay duo, Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine. (Darren Criss)

The allegedly controversy sex scene took place at the very end of the show and was actually extremely tame. I’ve seen worse sex scenes on The O.C., Degrassi and even The Vampire Diaries. And by worse, I mean, not a big deal at all.
