Just in case you haven’t heard the news, the star of FOX’s musical television phenomenon, Glee, Cory Monteith, was found dead in his hotel room in Vancouver, CA yesterday afternoon. Monteith was 31 years old and had been admitted into rehab early last year for drug addiction.
This just flat out stinks to high heaven. I have been a longtime fan of Glee, As mentioned in this post here. Monteith was a great voice in the show, if not the best. I often relate to his character, Finn Hudson, and that has been what’s been keeping me attached to the show. He was such a young talent with so much going for him and it was all for nothing.
The autopsy report obviously has not come back yet… or even taken place for that matter. Sources say no, “Foul play,” seemed apparent upon discovering Monteith’s body. Which leads the detective in me to think he ODed on drugs… Yep, I’m a detective. I’m the world’s greatest detective.
So yeah, I just hate how young he was and had this happen to him. I know FOX signed Glee on for a season 5 and 6. Not sure what they’re gonna do. Are they gonna do a Finn death in the show? Are they gonna recast him? Is Glee over basically? Only time will tell.
Rest in peace, Cory. You will be sorely missed. From all of us (Just me and Drew basically) at We’re Not Sorry, our thoughts go out to Cory’s friends and family.
