A new episode of “Glee” is written around Cory Monteith’s deadly overdose. CNN’s Brooke Baldwin and her guests discuss the show’s decision.
to me it makes sense not to make Finn die from drugs, because Finn was never a drug addict, Corey was.
You mean they're simply not going to replace him with Aston Kutcher?
Jackson – Dave's comment was actually funny. I really liked Corey in Glee, but come on...Ashton Kutcher would be HILARIOUS!
This is the wrong approach. When Actor Jack Soo died during the run of "Barney Miller", they did a tribute show to him, not just that his character died. I believe this should be the approach the producers should take, to give a closure to the event, as well as a fitting tribute to a potentially rising star.
I do think they are planning on doing a tribute episode for Cory, but his character will also pass away int he show.
I used to have a lot of respect for CNN's coverage of the news...however...lately...It seems that CNN is either not checking their facts throughly or someone cannot spell..or...eg: Cory died in Vancouver...not Toronto..Yes it was corrected at the end...but...also regarding the Middle East..Morsi is spelled with an "I" at the end...CNN keeps spelling his name with an "Y" (Just check all the other news sites.)
I am sorry, but feel that the most responsible way for them to deal with his death on the show would be for it to be from an overdose.
Although that would have been hard on the cast, if it might come across as a "DON'T DO THIS!" message to anyone young person out there, and save a life, then it would have had great value.
To have him die in some other, possibly heroic way, might make his character seem more like his character was supposed to be in the show, but, it misses an opportunity to "use" his death for some good in life.
Cory didn't die in a Toronto hotel, he was in Vancouver. If you're going to report a story, make sure you get the details straight first
I'm angry about Cory Monteith’s deadly overdose. I don't understand, this kid was becoming something special in life and he throw it away.
Brooke Baldwin This was a great post i love that Glee is going to do a tough episode about this story. Our children need to hear the truth. What ever the truth is. Hopefully Glee doesn't hold back! Show the youth the reality of life drugs.
