It's hard to say if 'Glee' would have followed the same trajectory toward a season 6 series finale if not for lead actor Cory Monteith's untimely death, though series creator Ryan Murphy always had in mind how the series would have ended between Monteith and co-lead Lea Michele. Want to know what 'Glee''s very last shot would have been?
Lea Michele has been largely silent since the death of her boyfriend and co-star Cory Monteith, who played her character Rachel Berry's love interest, Finn Hudson, on 'Glee.' Until now. In a heartbreaking confession, Michele revealed that she lost two people when Monteith died.
Cory Monteith's death shook the 'Glee' cast and crew to their core. The tribute episode to the star, who died of a lethal mixture of heroin and alcohol, will air this week. Titled 'The Quarterback,' it was the absolute hardest episode anyone on cast or crew has ever had to shoot.
The 2013 Emmys, which air tonight (Sunday, Sept. 22) on CBS, will pay tribute to the stars we've lost in 2013 so far, among them actor James Gandolfini and 'Glee' star Cory Monteith. Monteith died of a lethal drug cocktail in July while battling addiction issues. The production is being criticized for including the actor, who was only 31 at the time of death, in a tribute reserved for veterans.
Though Dianna Agron wasn't invited to Cory Monteith's tribute episode, she still holds her onetime 'Glee' costar close to her heart. The starlet, who likely won't be returning to the show at all, appeared on 'Katie' to promote her new movie, 'The Family' and wax poetic about her fallen friend.
After weeks of skirting promos and press releases, 'Glee' season 5 has opened up for a full trailer of its forthcoming September 26 premiere "Love, Love, Love," chock full of Beatles tribute numbers, and little else. The gang is all smiles and songs in the first real run of footage from season 5, but how long until the bottom drops out?
We may not know exactly how the late Cory Monteith's 'Glee' character, Finn, is going to leave the show, but we do know that -- according to co-star Jane Lynch -- his memorial episode is going to be a beautiful thing.
