Even though Cory Monteith is gone, his passion for acting lives on in ‘McCanick,’ a film he starred in before his tragic death.

After losing the 31-year-old actor to a mix of heroin and alcohol overdose just last month, the movie seems to hit closer to home than anyone could have ever imagined. Monteith portrayed Simon Weeks, a drug addicted criminal who was released from prison after a murder.

Director Josh C. Waller said Cory felt the need to take a trip down memory lane as he prepped for the role of an addict. “He was very vocal about his past, and said he wanted to tap into things from his youth that he hadn’t been able to use as an actor yet,” he told the L.A. Times.

The film is set to make its debut in Sept. at the Toronto Film Festival. As for his infamous role as Finn Hudson in Glee, episode three will be a tribute to him and his unfortunate passing which will be aired in Oct. “The third episode will write Finn out of the show,” FOX chief Kevin Reilly unveiled. “That episode will deal directly with the incidents involved with Cory’s passing and the drug abuse in particular.”

Alcohol & Substances Behind Cory Monteith’s Death?

The death of Glee’s number one golden boy, Cory Monteith, took the world by surprise. But unfortunately, that wasn’t the first time he had our jaws dropping.

It was just four months ago (March 30 to be exact) that the 31-year-old made an announcement that no one was prepared for. He “voluntarily admitted himself into a treatment facility for substance addiction.” After spending a month cleaning up, he left with his head held high and his girlfriend, Lea Michele, there by his side.

So when word went viral about Monteith’s death, a question of relapsing had some concerned.

Now, new information has come forth in regards to his very tragic passing.

According to E! News, a large amount of alcohol as well as unidentified substances were found in the actors hotel room.

But even though sources confirmed to E! News that Cory had been drinking and partying the night before, it surely wasn’t enough to kill him. “Yes, he had recently been drinking alcohol, but not to the extent there was any alcohol poisoning kind of impact,” the source made clear.

So that just leaves the substances found. Investigators are not going to make any assumptions “just in case he also had an underlying medical condition,” sources say.

An autopsy is scheduled for today (Monday, July 15). A cause of death will not be announced until everything gets checked out, which probably won’t be until later on in the week.

Lea Michele Left Heartbroken Following Cory Monteith’s Death

I’m seriously gutted as I sit here writing about Cory Monteith’s death, as is the rest of the world!

But after learning about all of this, I’m sure all Glee fans out there stopped to wonder how the 31-year-olds girlfriend is handling the situation.

According to Showbizspy.com,  Lea Michele was completely ‘devasted’ by the passing of the love of her life as you can only imagine.

But exactly how did she find out?

The website is reporting that Michele got word of Cory’s death through a simple phone call, leaving her completely stunned. A source claims, “Lea broke down in tears when she heard the news. Cory was her whole world. They’ve been through a lot together.”

Now the 26-year-old has come forward to PEOPLE Magazine with a few words… well her reps did at least:

 “Lea is deeply grateful for all the love and support she’s received from family, friends, and fans. Since Cory’s passing, Lea has been grieving alongside his family and making appropriate arrangements with them.”

The most heartbreaking thing is the fact that Lea opened up to Marie Claire about her relationship with her co-star and how he makes her feel like ‘the luckiest girl.’

The one thing that is just breaking me into pieces is the fact that Lea professed her love for Cory in an interview with Marie Claire saying:

“I don’t even remember a time when he wasn’t my boyfriend. No one knows me better than Cory. No one knows what it’s been like to go through this more than he does. Feeling like you have that net underneath you allows you to jump higher and go farther. He makes me feel like I can do anything. For the first time in my life, I feel really, really settled and happy. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world.”

Excuse me while I grab myself a kleenex. I can’t even imagine. I feel like this is just a nightmare the world is trying to wake up from.

RIP Cory Monteith!

Cory Monteith Found Dead!

It seems like just yesterday I was on the red carpet at the ‘Glee 3D Concert Movie’ Premiere in Los Angeles reporting for Celebuzz with my fellow intern Diana, waiting to see one of my celebrity crushes Mr. Cory Monteith. I didn’t know if it was his perfectly quaffed hair or how beautiful he looked in person but he had my heart fluttering the moment I saw him step out of his car.

So once I heard about him passing away I’m sure you can only imagine how stunned and heartbroken I was.

I wish I could say it wasn’t so… but it is (TEAR).

Here’s what I know so far:

The 31-year-old was found dead in his hotel room in Vancouver, Canada after missing his check-out time Saturday July 13.

Vancouver police confirmed this tragic information saying, There were others with Mr. Monteith in his room earlier last night [July 12], but video and fob key entries show him returning to his room by himself in the early morning hours and we believe he was alone when he died. When he missed his check-out time, staff went to the room at noon and found his body.”

Monteith is said to have been deceased for quite a few hours before his body was discovered, which makes it even worse.

Although an official cause of death has yet to be determined, some believe drugs may be behind this tragic loss.

I’m sure more details will be coming our way within the next few days.

For now… thoughts and prayers go out to Cory’s family and friends as well as my fellow gleeks out there!

Glee Covers One Direction’s ‘Live While We’re Young’

No one can really seem to get enough of One Direction now a days. Not even Glee can resist the power of Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, and Zayn Malik.

Even though there was a brand new episode of Glee last week on Thanksgiving, this Thursday’s episode is celebrating the holiday… 1D style. That’s right, the bad boys of Dalton Academy Warblers will take on One Direction’s first hit off of their Take Me Home album ‘Live While We’re Young’ at sectionals.

And because of the oh so brilliant song choice, the New Direction’s seem to have some pretty stiff competition at sectionals this season if the Warblers plan on swooning over the judges with a little One Direction.

But this isn’t Glee’s first time covering the British boy band. They first tried their voices at ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ in last seasons Prom episode, and was quite successful.

So after you listen to the Warbler’s very own rendition of ‘Live While We’re Young’ comment below letting us know what you think.

Glee the 3D Concert Movie Premieres in Los Angeles


Hold on to your seats and channel your inner ‘Gleek’ because it’s going to be a bumpy ride. The cast of Glee is coming to a big screen near you! And even better … they will be in 3D!

That’s right, Glee lovers! Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Darren Criss and the rest of the Glee gang will be making their very first film appearance together in one of the most anticipated movies of the summer – Glee the 3D Concert Movie! The New Directions took Los Angeles by storm on Saturday night to premiere their movie — and Celebuzz was on the red carpet to get the 4-1-1 on the movie excitement, fashion and everything in between.

The film, which hits theaters on August 12th for a two week run, features all of your favorite glee club members live in concert, giving fans a little taste of what their live show has to offer.

On the red carpet, Lea Michele showed that she clearly doesn’t take fashion tips from her alter ego, Rachel Berry. She stole the show as she waltzed her way through the carpet looking lovely in a black lace corset dress from Marchesa, something she claims is “very different” than what she’s used to wearing on the show.

As the Glee phenomenon continues to take over the world, Lea took the time to credit all the Gleeks out there for making this possible, stating:

We just have the most amazing fans, so all that we do is for them. It’s a universal thing that people can respond to.

The New Directions weren’t the only famous glee club walking the red carpet, though. Noticeably present alongside the stars of the hit television series were Darren Criss and the Dalton Academy Warblers (who had nothing but nice things to say about their glee club leader). The Warblers gushed:

It’s been absolutely amazing to be surrounded by this kind of talent. Darren is incredible. He’s not just an amazing actor, he’s good at everything. It’s not just him, but it’s everybody on the show.

Darren Criss was recently upgraded to a season regular, and we can’t wait to see if this Warbler will finally join his on-screen boyfriend, Chris Colfer, at McKinley High this season. Which begs the question: Will fans be seeing more of the Warblers next season as well? The Warblers’ response: “That’s to be continued.” We sure hope so!

The troubled bully Max Adler proved that he cleans up well by strutting the red carpet looking chic in an all black suit. We asked Adler to dish out which other character he would love to play on the show. His answer? Finn. Max told us:

I connect with Finn a lot because in high school I got my hands on a lot of things. I was in student government, was friends with all the athletes and got good grades. I totally get what Finn is trying to balance.

Adler recently made a guest appearance as a mentor on the hit reality series The Glee Project, in which 12 contestants sing their way through each week to win a seven-episode stint on Glee. We are just a few weeks away from finding out who came out on top and will join Max Adler and the rest of the crew next season. Adler to a few seconds to wish the final five contestants luck as they made their way into the premiere.

What a sweetheart in real life!

While you anxiously await the arrival of Glee the 3D Concert Movie, here’s a sneak peak at what you’ll be able to enjoy.
