Cory Monteith, who played heart throb Finn Hudson in the Fox hit "Glee," was found dead in a Vancouver, Canada, hotel room Saturday, police said. He was 31. Vancouver police said the cause of death was not immediately apparent, but they ruled out foul play. Medical examiners will conduct an autopsy Monday.
Monteith's body was discovered by staff members at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel after he missed his checkout time, acting Chief Constable Doug LePard told reporters.
Monteith apparently had several people over to his room at one point Friday night, but LePard said Monteith, who had checked in July 6, was seen on hotel surveillance video returning to his room in the early morning hours by himself.
Here's the reaction of his cast-mates and other celebrities are:
One of his castmates on "Glee," Mark Salling, tweeted a simple "no" after police held their news conference.
Dot-Marie Jones, who plays the football coach at the fictional William McKinley High tweeted: "I have no words! My heart is broken. Cory was not only a hell of a friend, he was one amazing man that I will hold close to my heart forever. "I am blessed to have worked with him and love him so much! My heart is with his family and our whole Glee family! I love you all!"
"I've never lost a friend this close. This feels like a mistake," Zegers wrote.
