Re: Cory Monteith (Glee) Found Dead in Vancouver Hotel Room

Just woke up to this news. Pretty shocked. I'm a big Glee fan and I really liked his character and what they were doing with his story.

Yikes. Far too young (same age as me!). What a damn shame.

Re: Cory Monteith (Glee) Found Dead in Vancouver Hotel Room

I knew he'd had problems with substance abuse, but I never expected to wake up to this news.

He was one of my favourite characters on the show back when the show was good, though I don't think any character suffered more from bad writing than Finn did later on, and I came to hate the character. But I hoped to see more good stuff from Cory in the future.

Re: Cory Monteith (Glee) Found Dead in Vancouver Hotel Room

It has not been ruled a drug overdose! It could have been a heart attack or an aneurysm, let's not all jump on the "it was drugs!"

But he was the face of Glee, he was glee (not the show, the word), just seemed so happy and smiling all the time, came off as a great great who had issues and were addressing them. So so so sad.

Re: Cory Monteith (Glee) Found Dead in Vancouver Hotel Room

I did not know Lea Michele and Cory Monteith were going to get Married. This makes this news all the more tragic. I can't fathom what she is going through at this moment.

Re: Cory Monteith (Glee) Found Dead in Vancouver Hotel Room

Haven't watched "Glee" in a while (I'm kinda still mad at them for what they did to Rocky, LOL) but I really liked the first couple of seasons...

Damn, it really sucks about Cory Monteith (who also had acouple of small roles on "Stargate: SG-1" and "Stargate: Atlantis", btw) - drug addiction is...a hard to monster to kill.

Re: Cory Monteith (Glee) Found Dead in Vancouver Hotel Room

It was heroin and alcohol in combination. Why do people do this to themselves?

So sad. It started when he was so young, which probably made it harder to change.

Because as anybody who was addicted would tell you...

Because they work.

Because addiction sucks. I never touched anything harder than vodka, but getting clean was probably the hardest mountain I'll ever climb in my life.

Yeah, because we all know that an otherwise healthy 31-year-old with a history of substance abuse could drop dead of a heart attack or aneurysm.
