Jane Lynch Calls Cory Monteith's Glee Tribute, "Most Beautiful Thing"

It appears as though Glee creator Ryan Murphy has given the late Cory Monteith a fitting tribute, despite speculation that writers would use the actor's death to warn of the dangers of drug addiction.

Of course, the show is likely to address that issue following the death of one of its biggest stars, though it appears the planned memorial episode will remember Monteith for the talent he was.

Jane Lynch, who plays sports coach Sue Sylvester on the show, tweeted: "Just read Cory Monteith memorial episode. Most beautiful thing. Thank you, @MrRPMurphy @BFalchuk Ian Brennan."

Rumors had suggested Ryan Murphy would kill off Cory's character Finn Hudson with a drug overdose - the same way he died in real life - though the writer has opted against the move.

Monteith, who appeared on the show since 2009, was found dead in his Vancouver hotel room in 2009. An autopsy subsequently revealed the 31-year-old died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol.

Lynch, 53, recently told E! News how she wasn't expecting filming of the tribute episode to be easy, 

"It's gonna be terrible. It has to be done but it's gonna be awful," she said.

Earlier this month, Monteith girlfriend Lea Michele dedicated her Choice TV actress comedy award to her co-star, 

"I wanted to dedicate this award to Cory for all of you out there who loved and admired Cory as much as I did," she said.

Glee returns with its fifth season on September 26, 2013. It will begin with a two-part Beatles tribute episode, followed by the Monteith tribute.
