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.

Not really a fan, but sad to hear nonetheless.

My gut feeling is that he OD on something. Apparently he had just entered rehab as earlier as April of this year. Such a shame really to throw your life away like that.

Very sad news.

I liked Glee when it first started and Cory Monteith played the character of Finn very well, he also came across as the most humble and likeable of all the cast in any of his interviews. I think he had a drink and drugs problem when he was younger had entered rehab last year so it's possible his addition got the better of him, such a shame for someone so young.

RIP

He has a history of alcohol and drug abuse starting at age 16. He had been in and out of rehabs ever since then. Since he has been having no problems with his career it could be he died from the physical damage the drugs did rather than an OD.

But still RIP.

Heath Ledger came to mind. Mixing drugs, perhaps some alcohol earlier, and he might have just stopped breathing in the middle of the night. It wouldn't be the first time it's happened.

Could be that too. We'll just have to wait and see what the toxicology report states. It could be a combination of all of the above.

This is really sad news. I stopped watching Glee when the initial cast (or portions of it) graduated high-school but Finn was by far my favorite character - always though he was a better singer and much more enjoyable than that annoying character, Rachel. Such a talented young life wasted.

Eh. When it's obvious, they can probably crash it out within a few days.

Not nearly as many "suspicious" deaths in Canada as in the USA.

I've been watching the show since it started, and I only found out about his drug issues a couple of months ago...

They got clean, died, or turned into criminals.

Well. It's a TV show that lots of kids happen to like. Doesn't mean you idolize or even condone drug abuse.

Anyway, what are you supposed to do, hire private investigators and paparazzi to dig into every star's personal life to ensure they are squeaky clean?

The most shocking thing is that he looked like (and his character was) a clean, sweet, naive boy (didn't even look his age, 31), but apparently he was doing (and had a history of doing) hard drugs. I mean, he had been rumored to have been involved in meth, and he died of a heroin overdose. Meth and heroine! That is not the face of someone who is addicted to meth an heroine (not that I am guy or anything, but if I was...). Who even does heroine any more, and how the heck would you get into that? Have a fascination with needles?

As much as I love Keith Richards for his music and his ridiculously blunt honesty, 99% of people would have died 30 years ago, had they lived his life.

Agreed - studying his nervous system and heart might yield some incredible new medical breakthroughs!

Track marks are easy to hide with a good make-up artist and lightning. Which goes to show that a lot of people knew what was going on IF HE WAS USING NEEDLES. They just turned their face the other way. But, the heroine you need to inject IV these days is the "El Cheapo" version and only the real riff-raff are the ones doing that. Cut with God knows what. I guess is what keeps the show "Cops" alive.
However:

Heroine has come down in price and gone up in purity significantly in the last 5 years, so the same high for which you needed needles and IV use, you can nowadays get by inhaling it. I bet that´s how he was doing it and thus few, if anybody, noticed. At the same time, you need a lot less to kill yourself, since you don´t really know the purity. And lately, the one entering the end user market in the NorthAmerican market is pretty pure.

Maybe it won´t kill you, but if you got yourself an unusually pure batch and then go and have a few drinks, you are going to stop breathing.

Also, if you use heroine regularly but stop for a few months at a time (say during filming) and then come back to it when on vacation, you need to realize the tolerance you developed before is gone. The months you were clean wiped out that tolerance so if you start with the same dose you were using before stopping, you will OD. Many of OD deaths occur that way.

Who knows what happened? A seemingly talented youth is gone, a family is suffering and a show that was successful probably won´t get over this. A totally unnecessary and awful tragedy.

Oh another celebrity OD...no one cares if you're plain Jane of Bumfuck, AK. I guess his alabaster complexion and very cute face didn't hurt either... It is really sad.

All this is to be expected, and it is never ending. Some people suffer from addiction, and some of those that do die from it.
