Jane Lynch dropped by “The Tonight Show” where she spoke in remembrance of her “Glee” co-star Cory Monteith. The 31-year-old actor died from a lethal combination of alcohol and heroin last weekend. Despite graduating from high school a season ago, Monteith’s character, Finn Hudson, remained a key part of the show, helping mentor and run the glee club he was once a part of.
“Cory’s one of the biggest hearts. Real bright light,” said Lynch. “He was one of those guys that, you know, he knew he was breathing rarified air. The gifts … this wonderful show gave us. And he was one of those guys, he was always aware that it was a gift.”
“I don’t think he left one day unlived,” she said. “We’ve lost a really great guy.”
