The cast of Glee is an incredibly close one, and news of the untimely death of star Cory Monteith has been devastating.
Yet despite news Saturday night of Monteith’s passing, it’s cast members still have work and promotional requirements. And they have stepped up to fulfill those.
Emmy Winner Jane Lynch – who plays Sue Sylvester – starred in her final performance in Broadway’s revival of Annie Sunday afternoon.
Matthew Morrison – who plays Mr. Shuester – dedicated a song to Monteith during a Sunday night performance in New York City. He sang What I Did for Love from the Broadway stalwart A Chorus Line telling his audience ”You came out to see a show, I came out to do one, so let’s honor Cory with this performance.”
Chord Overstreet – who portrayed his football teammate and Glee club friend – played in the Taco Bell All-Star Legends and Celebrity softball game on Sunday at Citi Field in Flushing, New York as part of Major League Baseball’s All-Star game festivities. Chord hit a homer and dedicated it to Cory.
Darren Criss has confirmed he will make his scheduled appearance on Tuesday morning’s Good Morning America to promote his film Girl Most Likely. He’ll be the first major cast star to appear on live tv since Cory’s passing.
31-year-old Monteith was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room on Saturday. An autopsy is being conducted Monday to determine the cause of death.
