In Memoriam segment, with icons such as James Gandolfini and Jean Stapleton,to have a special highlight feature. The Emmys announced that one of the recently deceased celeberties they were honoring this Sunday night, included the late Glee star, Corey Monteith, who was found dead in a hotel room, on Vancouver's waterfront, July12, 2013.
At the time his almighty Hollywood star was burning brightly thanks to his role on "Glee" as sweet-natured quarterback Finn. He left behind millions of fans but a relatively short resume. Corey left his fan's a film legacy, with the indy film, "All the Wrong Reasons", the first of 2 films completed by the actor in late 2012.
Corey Monteith, was quoted as once saying before his rehab stint, that with all his fierce drug addiction struggles at that point of his life, he was lucky to be alive.Unfortunately, sadly he was found dead in a hotel room, July 12, 2013, in his hotel room in the Vancouver's waterfront area. TV critics wondered because of if his short body of work, if Corey Monteith deserved to be included in a special highlight feature, along with the rest of the more accomplished late stars.
"It was a rather personal choice", said Emmy producer Ken Ehrlich, At 31, he passed away under very tragic circumstances, Cory Monteith appeal meant as much as perhaps these other four individuals meant to their own generations." Actress Jane Lynch, Corey's "Glee" costar, will honor her former castmate during the In Memoriam portion of the show.
Who among other "Glee" castmates felt a certain pride, when Monteith’s name was honored alongside actors James Gandolfini of "Sopranos" fame, "All in The Families" Jean Stapleton and legendary film actor, and TV costar of "Mork and Mindy", Jonathan Winters who are being raised from the usual In Memoriam photo reel .
