Cory Monteith Talks Heaven On Inside The Actors Studio

We are still so saddened by the sudden passing of actor, Cory Monteith!

While waiting to hear the official cause of death, we can reflect and remember this young actor's career cut waaay too short.

Cory appeared on Inside the Actors Studio along with some of his Glee castmates back 2012, and host James Lipton asked the actor one of his most famous questions regarding the afterlife:

"If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?"

In a statement released by Bravo, James remembered Cory's response to the poignant question, explaining:

"Cory’s God said, ‘Uh, sorry I haven't been around. There’s a good explanation. I certainly hope there is. We needed Cory’s gifts."

James thought back on the lovely moment when he had the chance to work with the passed actor on Glee:

“When I appeared as myself on Glee, I auditioned Cory’s character, Finn, for the Actors Studio Drama School — and rejected him. That’s the way Ryan Murphy wrote it. I would have admitted him — in a New York minute."

In tribute, Bravo will be re-airing his appearance on ITAS Thursday, July 18 at 6 p.m, and again on Friday, July 19 at 7 p.m.

    Why did the 12-Step RELIGIOUS AA/NA CULT "HIGHER POWER" treatment fail him?

    Such a sad time he will be missed by everyone I loved him in Glee

    Normally when a celeb dies there is a lot of things people say, things that are disrespectful. I can say I haven't seen this with Cory. It seems he was just such a nice person no one has anything bad to say. Even people who are mean on message boards aren't writing the terrible things they usually do. People are genuinely sad. It's just really tragic. It wasn't the news I was expecting to hear Saturday evening.

    God probably asked him the same thing. What and ego, how dare he! Was he honoring the gifts God gave him when he stuck needles in his arm? Your not entitled to heaven, and God doesn't owe you a thing.
