'Glee' Star Enters Rehab While Series Is Still in Production Deadline
One of the stars of Fox’s "Glee" has entered rehab for substance addiction, while the series has two episodes left to tape for its current fourth season. Deadline.com reports that Cory Monteith, who plays Finn, has gone into rehab.
Taping will continue as scheduled, with the show set to explain his character’s absence, although the story doesn't say what the reason will be.
“Cory is a beloved member of the 'Glee' family and we fully support his decision to seek treatment,” “Glee” producer 20th Century Fox TV said in a statement. “Everyone at the show wishes him well and looks forward to his return.”
Monteith, 30, has been in rehab before, entering a program when he was 19, the story adds.
