Jane Lynch: 'Cory Monteith' was a lovely, lovely guy'




"Glee" star Jane Lynch is stopping by "The Late, Late Show" on Friday night (July 19), where host Craig Ferguson asks her how she's doing in the wake of co-star Cory Monteith's death.

"It's been a very tough week. It's tough, we lost a cast member. Cory Monteith was a lovely, lovely guy. Everybody loved him. Big loss for the 'Glee' family," says Lynch, getting choked up.

It's shocking. Whenever I see someone like that, when someone goes young like that, from what he went with, that could've easily been me, I was there, right there at that time in my life. Exact same thing, it's just awful. Poor kid," says Ferguson.

Monteith passed away from a lethal combination of heroin and alcohol last weekend. He was 31.
