Glee News: Glee's Cory Monteith Found Dead

Tragic news. Glee Star, Cory Monteith, who played Finn was found dead at a hotel in Canada.
(CNN) - Cory Monteith, who played heart throb Finn Hudson in the Fox hit "Glee," was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room Saturday, Vancouver police said. He was 31.
Police said the cause of death was not immediately apparent, but they ruled out foul play.
Monteith spent time in rehab early this year, checking into a drug addiction treatment facility in April.
He had been frank about his struggles with substance abuse, telling Parade magazine in 2011 that he began using drugs at 13, and by 19 went into rehab after his mother and friends intervened.
Monteith had been on the musical comedy show since it began in 2009.
In 2011, he won a Teen Choice award for top actor in a comedy. The show's cast won a Screen Actors Guild award for an ensemble in a comedy the prior year.
A couple of months ago, he voluntarily checked into a rehab for his substance abuse, which he was battling since he was young. Despite his problems, it seemed like Cory always tried to remain professional on the show and was always well liked. This is unfortunate particularly because I think he was really trying to break free of this addiction.

I know. I know. I stopped blogging about Glee since Season 3, but this was VERY shocking. Cory, to me, was a fantastic actor and has always been an important character on the show. I will always remember his first scenes from the first season of Glee. Sad.

Rest in Peace, Cory Monteith.
