Glee‘s Cory Monteith Talks About His Drug Addiction, Rehab

|

If the writers on Glee ever run out of story ideas, Cory Monteith’s drug addiction seems like a rich, real-life experience  for a teen to go through, rather than, getting stuffed into a human cannon. After a stint in rehab didn’t help him overcome his substance abuse, Monteith admits that he once “stole a significant amount of money from a family member.” The actor recalls, “I knew I was going to get caught, but I was so desperate I didn’t care. It was a cry for help. I was confronted and I said, ‘Yeah, it was me.’ It was the first honorable, truthful thing that had come out of my mouth in years.” As for his drug of choice, Monteith said he’d do “anything and everything, as much as possible…I had a serious problem.” Hmmm, “Anything and Everything” would be a great song title, actually…okay, we’ll stop.

While Monteith eventually reached sobriety and ventured into acting, the announced Glee graduation in the upcoming season might mean Cory’s Finn will be walking across the stage for his diploma/soulful group number on his way out of the series. Creator Ryan Murphy confirms the Glee spoiler rumors, explaining that some of the seniors will be drastically reduce their chances of being Slushied by entering the real world, saying “Which I find strange because I’ve been saying it for years. Maybe because the moment has come and people are like, “Wait! No!” Murphy also adds, however, “To that I would say there are some people who are not seniors and there are some people that are REALLY intellectually challenged. Like, you know that Britney is pulling straight Fs.” Get ready for Monteith’s big number, “F is for Forever.”
